We return with four concerts by the Sinfónica de Tenerife
The Department of Culture, Education, Youth and Sport of the Cabildo de Tenerife, led by councillor Concepción Rivero, restarts its stage activity with four concerts by the Orquesta Sinfónica in the Auditorio de Tenerife, to take place on 19 and 26 June and 3 and 10 July. It is an extraordinary programme with a reduced group of some twenty musicians led in two occasions by Víctor Pablo Pérez, honorary conductor of the Sinfónica, and twice by David Ballesteros, leader of the orchestra and conductor.
These concerts will be held once the safety and hygiene measures have been implemented both for the audience and the workers so that this artistic experience can be enjoyed while safety is absolutely guaranteed. They will all be held at Auditorio de Tenerife’s Sala Sinfónica and start at 7:30 pm, although the public is kindly asked to come one hour earlier. Tickets cost five euros.
Tickets will be on sale from Saturday, the 13th in pairs on Auditorio de Tenerife’s website and on 902 31 73 27. If you wish to buy just one seat or an odd number of seats you can do it at the box office by appointment only. Please make your appointment on www.auditoriodetenerife/contactar or call 922 56 86 25 so you can be served at the box office or by telephone. Tickets will be on sale up to two hours before the concert starts. Tickets will be available to Sinfónica de Tenerife subscribers two days earlier than for the general public.
The first programme is about one hour long and it starts with five minutes of Johann Sebastian Bach and his Aria of Suite nº 3 in D major, BWV 1068, picking up Sinfónica’s last concert on 20 February, when they played this work under the baton of José Manuel Zapata. The orchestra will then play Symphony nº 1 in D major, Titan, for chamber orchestra, arranged by Iain Farrington so that Gustav Mahler can be enjoyed in this era of small ensembles. These pieces will be conducted by Víctor Pablo Pérez.
There are 188 seats on sale now, as the island is currently in Phase 3 of the national de-escalation and seats must be two metres apart. The new safety measures include, in addition to admitting fewer people, coming in and going out of the auditorium gradually and guided by Auditorio staff, compulsory use of masks, taking the temperature of users and no intermissions, among others. There will be different signs in the building too. Buyers will be informed before the concert of all these measures. You can also see the information on Auditorio de Tenerife website.
The GastroMag coffee bar will open the day before the first concert and will apply all the appropriate safety and hygiene measures. Auditorio de Tenerife’s car park is also available for these concerts. Please remember the box office is open Monday to Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm by appointment only. The shop is currently closed.
The second concert of this extraordinary programme by Sinfónica de Tenerife will be held on 26 June, featuring David Ballesteros as leader of the orchestra and conductor, and including works by Holst, Grieg, Puccini and Mozart. The same conductor will lead the orchestra on 3 July, when they will play pieces by Haydn, Bach and Mozart. In the last extraordinary concert, under Víctor Pablo Pérez, they will play Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony. The conductor, Medalla de Oro de Canarias [Canaries Gold Medal], had led Sinfónica de Tenerife performing this piece in the past but never as a reduced ensemble: this is new to both of them.
