Sinfónica de Tenerife’s nineteen concerts of the 2018-2019 season attracted 22% more people than the previous season. This means a total of 18,655 viewers came to Auditorio de Tenerife between 14 September 2018 and 21 June last, registering an average 981 audience members and two packed houses.
There has also been an increase in the number of people aged under 27 with 124 subscribers to Sinfónica de Tenerife, that is, 26% of the general subscriptions. This figure is reached thanks to the financial advantage offered by the Young Subscription, as it has a single rate of 20 Euros for the whole season.
Apart from the loyalty of subscribers, listeners have answered positively to the programme of Sinfónica for the current season, which sold 8,500 standard tickets.
The principal conductor of Cabildo de Tenerife’s orchestra, Antonio Méndez, led eight concerts of the subscription period while its honorary conductor, Víctor Pablo Pérez, took care of three programmes. In addition, an artist in residence was introduced, with musician François Leleux taking part in two concerts – one as a solo oboe and in another one as conductor.
Sinfónica de Tenerife’s programme blended tradition and modernity in a season which offered one extra concert in comparison to previous seasons. The orchestra performed 19 times, playing 47 pieces by 27 composers. The pop music concert –devoted to The Beatles- and Mozart’s Requiem were both sold out.
Sinfónica de Tenerife’s programme for the 2019-2020 subscription season will start on 13 September. The different types of subscriptions are now on sale.
