Musical residences 2017-2018
In the autumn, Catalunya La Pedrera Foundation will once again offer its own approach to music at La Pedrera, continuing to recommend young musical talent through a new season of the Musical Residencies cycle.
Those selected for the sixth year of the series are the soprano Sara Blanch, the pianist Adrian Blanco, and the guitarist Izan Rubio. All of them are young Catalans with recognised talent and emerging careers who are currently also promoting themselves abroad.
As in previous years, the scheduled programme involves concerts at La Pedrera on the third Sunday of every month in the afternoon. The new feature this year is that the 2016-17 season begins on 17th of September and ends on 20th of May. Meanwhile, the cycle continues to alternate the residents: every three months each of them feature in a different concert to offer the public a season of concerts with a more varied, attractive programme. This format allows the residents to work on their programmes for longer while remaining associated with the Foundation’s Residency programme throughout the season.
The programmes prepared and rehearsed together will be presented at La Pedrera on the day of the concert.
