On the 20th of June famous orchestral works will be performed in the open air in celebration of International Music Day
On Saturday the 20th of June, on a weekend marked by the imminence of the St. John's Eve festivities, the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra – the National Orchestra of Catalonia (OBC) will celebrate International Music Day with an extensive free concert on the beach. The performance will take place at 8.30 pm at the end of the Passeig de Joan de Borbó, on Sant Sebastià beach.
The initiative is designed to acquaint audiences with a repertoire of famous symphonic works and boasted significant success last year, making a repeat performance eminently justifiable. This year's repertoire will include such emblematic pieces as Also Sprach Zarathustra, by Richard Strauss, The Ride of the Valkyries, by Wagner, Hungarian Dance Nº 1, by Brahms, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, by Klaus Badelt and Hans Zimmer, and Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity, by Gustav Holst, among many others. Jaime Martín will conduct.
Attendees are free to share their photos of the event in Instagram and may win a voucher for films and OBC concerts for the 2015-16 season, tickets to other concerts and subscriptions to El Periódico.
