I am pleased to have been asked to conduct a festival performance in Barcelona, Spain in early June of 2018. Barcelona is one of the most interesting cities in the world. In 2017 it will host the World Symposium on Choral Music. It is a very choral friendly city. Perhaps the most interesting site in Barcelona is Gaudi’s Church of the Sacred Family.
I have now done four of these festivals for KIconcerts and I can tell you that they are a first rate organization. They find great hotels and wonderful concert venues. These projects work well for choirs, as each choir has its own tour schedule and concerts plus the festival performance provides an opportunity for them to come together and perform a major work with other choirs, professional orchestra and soloists. I have tentatively selected the Haydn Theresienmesse for the festival concert. Because of the flexible nature of the festival performance, smaller choirs or choirs with some balance issues may choose to participate only in the mass choir concert and choose not to do individual performances.
Your tour can be extended to the Madrid area or virtually any other area of Europe. Believe me however, there is more than enough in the Barcelona area for you and your singers to have a spectacular time. I hope that you can join us in June, 2018 in Barcelona.
