The Orquestra Simfònica Segle XXI is a symphony orchestra international course aimed at gathering instrumentalist of high level of ability and all ages who wish to further their musical knowledge, creating a unique opportunity for those who are still students of playing side by side with professional musicians.
The orchestra has its roots in Catalunya, but in the last few years the gatherings have been held in Godella (Valencia). Moreover, it has always brought together musicians from all regions South of the Pyrenees and from abroad alike, including participants from Germany, Netherlands, France, Israel, England and Italy. Always under the baton and guidance of Jordi Mora, a conductor widely experienced both in orchestra conducting and in the pedagogic field. He is also a scholar of phenomenology of music & sound.
With this year’s course we will celebrate 20 years since the start of the orchestra. We want to have our celebration coming back to Catalunya and interpreting 9th Beethoven Symphony. There will be a concert at the Palau de la Música in Barcelona on July 9th and another one at the Atlántida in Vic on 13th July 2019. We need your help to achieve this!
The rewards will consist of:
