The programme will feature musicians Marco Rizzi, Ana Liz Ojeda, Julia Gartemann, Macarena Pesutic and Enrico Bronzi

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island's Council that is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. On Thursday 22nd of September at 7:30 p.m. it offers a concert by the Tenerife Viola Masterclass Ensemble. The programme takes place at the Chamber Hall with works by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonín Dvořák.

One hour before, at 6:30 p.m., there will be a prior presentation that will provide context for the group and the programme to be performed. It will be given by Juana María Bolaños Polegre, a pupil in the Department of Musicology at the Higher Conservatoire of Music of the Canaries, and it will take place in the Avenida Hall, next to the Chamber Hall, with free entry until the capacity is full.

The quintet will be formed by Marco Rizzi, a prize-winner at prestigious international competitions such as the Tchaikovsky and Queen Elizabeth competitions, and now a professor in the Telefónica Chair of Violin of the Reina Sofía Higher School of Music in Madrid. Also, Ana Liz Ojeda, a violinist in the Accademia Bizantina since 2012 and a specialist in the historically-informed performance of the repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries. 

On the viola will be Julia Gartemann, professor at the Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler and member of the Berlin Philharmonic since 2000; and Macarena Pesutic, artistic director of the Tenerife Viola Masterclass, winner of the RWE Competition in Leipzig and of the Music Teachers National Association, and professor at the Higher Conservatoire of Music of the Canaries since 2005. The quintet is completed by Enrico Bronzi, cellist in the Trio di Parma and professor at the Universität Mozarteum in Salzburg since 2007.

The first part of the programme will be the String Quintet No.4 in G minor, K.516 by Mozart, composed in 1787. Bolaños states that “it is divided into four movements, imbued with an unsettled, dramatic and melancholic character, except for the allegro of the fourth movement, in the form of a relaxed rondo and G major, that the work finishes in”. Mozart was a pioneer in the creation of music for this chamber group, most common in the 19th and 20th centuries. 

After the interval, there will be a performance of Dvořák in E-flat major, Op. 97, in memory of his days in Spillville, Iowa, where he came into contact with the music of the Native Americans, as reflected in the marked rhythmic character of the work and in the occasional use of pentatonic scales. “With certain connections to the New World Symphony and the American Quartet, composed that same year, Dvořák gives the viola a key role in the most lyrical moments of the work, as well as its solo opening” analyses the pupil from the Conservatoire.

The tickets can be purchased at a single price of €15 on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. There are special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed and large families.

The tickets are sold out for this show titled ˋTRES de ballet triádicoˊ that takes place in a set that resembles an iglu

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga. On Saturday, 17 September, the venue launches the theatre festival FAM Otoño with the company Taiat Dansa. The Valencia company presents TRES de Ballet Triádico. Both sessions (at 6 pm and 8 pm) of this immersive show take place in a set that resembles an iglu. The tickets for both performances are sold out. 

Through this piece, Meritxell Barberá & Inma García, choreographers from the company, tackle their desire to explore the possibilities and the visual, aesthetic, spatial, and performance revolution behind Oskar Schlemmer's Triadic Ballet (he is a German artist related to the Bauhaus School. The idea is to propose a new, contemporary view of this emblematic cog of the history of art - something which was crucial for the visual arts but had little influence on the history of dance, choreography, and the moving arts.

The term triadic is related to number three, the most important and dominant number according to Oskar Schlemmer, who defends that the concept of "the collective" begins with this number after overcoming the self and the concept of "dualism". That is exactly the point that the choreographers of Taiat hash out alongside Brazilian choreographer Ismael Ivo and Frenchman Rachid Ouramdane, bringing us a piece directed by Taiat Dansa but choreographed by the three parties in which each one is in charge of a choreographic sequence so as to compose the three parts of this performance.

Three dancers, three choreographers, and three sequences on stage. Shape, colour, space. The three dimensions of the space: height, width, and depth. The basic shapes: sphere, cube, and pyramid. Three colours: yellow, pink, and black. Dance, costumes, and music. All of these are the ingredients featured in TRES de Ballet Triádico.

The piece has the same length as the original ballet, that is 40 minutes. It can be seen in two different performances in small groups of people who will be seated on cushions at floor level, accessing the space that the company has designed to contain and recreate its version of the triadic ballet.

The theatre festival FAM Otoño offers seven shows that will take place between September and December on the stages of the Auditorio de Tenerife and the Espacio La Granja. The next dance event takes place outside the Auditorio de Tenerife at 7:00 p.m. with the proposal by the Catalan dancer Magí Serra and the Slovenian dancer Anamaria Klajnšček. Cossoc is a dance duet, a hypnotic choreography which displays the complexity and simplicity of a relationship.

FAM (Arts and Movement Festival), a proposal of Auditorio de Tenerife and a commitment to Spanish contemporary dance, comes alongside the artistic circuit supported by the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music (INAEM) and developed by the Spanish Network of Theatres: Danza a Escena 2022.

Tickets are available on the website www.famtenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 05:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 02:00 p.m. Some shows have age recommendations, which can be consulted on the website.

The activity, which is taking place in eleven municipalities, will begin in October and run until June

 

The Theatre Schools programme (Escuelas de Teatro) of the Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council that is managed by the island's Minister of Culture Enrique Arriaga, is ending the enrolment period for the 2022-2023 year on 30 September. The municipalities participating in this programme are Adeje, Arona, Candelaria, El Rosario, El Sauzal, Granadilla de Abona, Guía de Isora, La Laguna, La Orotava, Santa Úrsula and Tegueste. 

For this school year, there are four offers according to the student's ages: Groups A (from 7 to 11 years of age), Groups B (from 12 to 14 years of age), Groups C (from 15 to 17 years of age) and Groups D (over 18 years). The subjects taught, with a fun methodology, are Bodily expression, Oral expression, History of theatre, Stage performance and practice. All activities will be carried out in groups with a maximum of 15 pupils, from Monday to Friday in the afternoon and will begin in the first week of October.

The Learning and Social Programme of Auditorio de Tenerife offers theatre courses that are held in collaboration with the island's municipalities. They take place in educational and cultural centres during the school year and offer theatrical training to children, youth and adults. The aim is to foster a quality artistic hobby and to contribute to the cultural development of the social environment. All teachers have a degree in performing arts by the school of performing arts of the Canary Islands (Escuela de Actores de Canarias). 

To register in one of the theatre schools of the island network it is not necessary to have any prior knowledge or special skills and it can be done through the website https://auditoriodetenerife.com/en/learning-and-social-programme/theatre-schools.

Theatre is important to contributing to the cultural identity of a community, it nurtures expressive values for interpersonal relations and encourages social participation. Likewise, it provides resources and tools that are useful for coping with real life (overcoming shyness, the ability to talk in public, assimilation of the feeling of a social role...). Theatre also boosts social skills that are acquired with group work, such as cooperation, tolerance, responsibility, respect and solidarity.

El director Jean-Claude Casadesus y el violinista Dmitri Makhtin se estrenan este viernes con la orquesta

 

La Sinfónica de Tenerife aborda su segundo concierto de la temporada 2022-2023 bajo la dirección del director Jean-Claude Casadesus y con la participación del violinista Dmitri Makhtin como solista invitado, ambos firman su primera aparición con la orquesta. El encuentro será el viernes [día 16], a las 19:30 horas, en el Auditorio de Tenerife y contará con un programa de corte romántico compuesto por obras de Bruch y Berlioz. 

La cita comenzará con el Concierto para violín y orquesta nº 1 en Sol menor, op. 26, de Max Bruch. Esta pieza estrenada en 1868 es una de las más conocidas del repertorio del autor alemán y está impregnada por los principales aspectos estéticos del género romántico. El violín acapara toda la atención en el desarrollo de una partitura que lo lleva desde un monólogo intimista hasta su plena fusión con la orquesta.

La segunda parte del concierto permitirá escuchar la interpretación de la Sinfonía fantástica, op. 14 de Hector Berlioz. Esta composición en cinco movimientos se ha considerado como el primer ejemplo de música programática. La obra estrenada en 1830 describe el amor en un periplo de emociones que ronda la psicodelia, debido a la naturaleza alucinatoria y soñadora de su escritura.

El director parisino Jean-Claude Casadesus estudió dirección orquestal con Pierre Boulez y lleva más de cuarenta años vinculado a la Orchestre National de Lille. Un trabajo que alterna con diferentes compromisos internacionales, como la dirección artística del Lille Piano(s) Festival, la dirección de la Asociación «Musique Nouvelle en Liberté» o el European TransSiberian Festival.  

Antes de crear junto con Pierre Dervaux, la Orchestre des Pays de la Loire, fue el director musical del Châtelet de París, además de haber ostentado el cargo de director titular de la Ópera de París y de la Opéra-Comique. En su recorrido profesional ha participado con la Orchestre National de France y la Orchestre de Paris, entre otras formaciones de prestigio internacional.

Su trabajo ha sido reconocido por numerosos premios, como: Commandeur de la Légion d'Honneur, Grand Officier de l'Ordre national du Mérite, Commandeur des Arts et Lettres, Commandeur de l'Ordre d'Orange-Nassau, Officier de l'Ordre de Léopold de Belgique, Chevalier des Palmes académiques.  En la edición de 2004 de Victoires de la Musique, recibió un Victoire d’honneur.

El violinista Dmitri Makhtin comenzó su educación musical con apenas cuatro años y en 1981 fue admitido en la Escuela de Música para niños especialmente dotados. En 1989, se alzó con el primer premio del concurso de violinistas rusos y en 1997 debuta con la Orquesta Sinfónica Estatal Rusa, dirigida por Yevgeny Svetlanov.

Desde ese momento, el intérprete ruso ha intervenido con diferentes agrupaciones orquestales, entre las que destacan las filarmónicas de Montecarlo, Marsella, Hong Kong, Ciudad de Praga, Radio France y San Petersburgo; sinfónicas de la Radio Sueca, Euskadi, Singapur, Marsella, San Sebastián y Dallas.

Makhtin se ha alzado como ganador de varios premios en diferentes citas internacionales como las de Montreal, Pretoria, Tibor Varga o Paganini. Es habitual en festivales de prestigio y actúa en las principales salas de conciertos: Palacio de las Bellas Artes de Bruselas, Lincoln Center de Nueva York, Filarmónica de San Petersburgo, Tivoli Vredenburg de Utrecht, Museo Pushkin de Moscú, el Concertgebouw de Amsterdam, entre otros. 

Las entradas para esta cita podrán adquirirse hasta el mismo día del concierto, a través de la página web www.sinfonicadetenerife.es, en la taquilla del propio recinto cultural del Cabildo o de forma teléfonica en el 902 317 327, de lunes a viernes de 10:00 a 17:00 horas, y sábados de 10:00 a 14:00 horas.

Pierre-Laurent Aimard is the soloist of a musical programme that, directed by the Pole, Marta Gardolinska, includes “The Scottish” by Mendelssohn

 

The Tenerife Symphony Orchestrais approaching its opening concert of the 2022-2023 season under the baton of the Polish conductor Marta Gardolinska. The French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard is participating as a guest soloist in a repertoire formed by pieces by Beethoven and Mendelssohn. The first event will be on Friday the 9th of September at 7:30 p.m., in the Auditorio de Tenerife.

The Piano Concerto No. 5 in E-Flat Major, Emperor, Op. 73 by Ludwig Van Beethoven, op. 73, will open the subscription programme of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. The score, which was written in 1809, was premiered in 1811, it was his last, and perhaps, the most renowned of his concerts. Its writing coincided with the Napoleonic invasion of Vienna, turbulent times, where the author created a composition that embodied the fighting dream and desire for victory. Also, this piece has an innovative aesthetic that will set the pattern for subsequent romantic-style concerts.

In the second part of the concert, the island group will perform Symphony No. 3 in A minor, “The Scottish”, Op. 56 by Felix Mendelssohn. This score, written between 1829 and 1842, is inspired by the composer’s first trip to the United Kingdom, where, after a series of performances in London, he embarked on a journey around Scotland. Indeed, in the scherzo, it is possible to identify reminiscences of traditional rhythms from the highlands. 

Marta Gardolinska is the current musical director of the National Opera of Lorraine, although she has also conducted the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra as a young associate director and has been the assistant to Gustavo Dudamel in the Los Angeles Philharmonic during the recording of Symphony No. 4 by Charles Ives for Deutsche Grammophon. 

In addition to the opening event with the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, Gardolinska will make her debut this season with the Philharmonia Orchestra and the Hallé Orchestra. She will also conduct the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, the Symphony Orchestra of the Polish National Radio and the Bournemouth Symphony. She will also go on a tour with the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra and Nicolas Altstaedt which she will combine with directing the season of the Orchestre National de Lorraine. 

In her professional career, Marta Gardolinska has participated with renowned European groups, such as the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse, L'Opéra National de Bordeaux, Opéra national du Rhin, London Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Royal Northern Sinfonia or the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

The French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard, who is giving a performance tomorrow [Tuesday 6] at the Chamber Hall of the Auditorium of Tenerife, is considered a key current musical figure, and he has extensive professional experience, having collaborated with renowned contemporary composers, such as György Ligeti, Karlheinz Stockhausen, George Benjamin, Pierre Boulez and Oliver Messiaen.

His background includes different collaborations with prestigious groups, such as the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra, Radio Filharmonisch Orkest, Deutsche Symphony Orchester Berlin, Orchestre National de Lille or Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France. Also, outside of Europe, he has collaborated with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Aimard begins the 2022/23 season by receiving Denmark's most prominent music award, the Leonie Sonning Music Prize 2022, which will be celebrated in a series of concerts with the Royal Danish Orchestra/Cambreling and recitals in Copenhagen and Aarhus. This award joins others such as the prestigious Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik, awarded by German critics.

In addition to tickets for this concert, any of the types of passes available for the 2022-2023 season can also be purchased up until this Friday on the website www.sinfonicadetenerife.es, at the auditorium's box office and by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

This Sunday, the Barcelona-born organist Aarón Ribas Zorrilla will play this unique instrument in the world

 

Toccata Nocturna opens the programme of this season's organ concert cycle at the Auditorio de Tenerife, a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of the Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. The Barcelona-born organist Aarón Ribas Zorrilla will play the great instrument housed within the walls of Symphony Hall on Sunday, 11 September, at 12:00 noon. This matinee takes place with the collaboration of the RACBA (San Miguel Archangel Royal Regional Academy of Fine Arts).

This young, award-winning organist, for whom the organ "has the same capacity to induce meditation and momentum", explains that he has found the night to be the best setting for all of this to happen. For Ribas, the germ of this ambitious programme "is for introspection but also for the explosion of brilliant fireworks", in which "the intimacy of the nocturnes contrasts with the force of the toccatas".

The power and depth of the toccatas by Bach, Heiller and Migó are highlighted alongside the delicate lines of the nocturnes by Chopin and the Clair de Lune by Debussy. This dialogue between some of the greatest composers is the result of a long exploratory process that has led Ribas to play in important European settings over recent years.

In 2013, Ribas won first prize in the organ competition to commemorate Joseph Gabler, held in Ochsenhausen (Germany) and first prize in the 82nd edition of the Spanish Permanent Competition for Young Musical Performers, awarded unanimously by the jury. At this competition, he also obtained a special prize from the EMCY (European Union of Competitions for Youth) for a European tour.

For the 2016-2017 season, he was selected by AIE (the Association of Performing Artists) for his Classics in Route series. In 2017 he was a finalist in the Primer Palau series organised by the Palau de la Música Catalana. He recently won second place in the II Francisco Salinas - VIII Centenary of the Cathedral of Burgos national organ competition.

As a solo organist, this performer is committed to contemporary music for the organ. He regularly performs concerts at important festivals and cathedrals in Europe, such as in Spain, Andorra, France, Germany, Lithuania and Italy. He has performed as a soloist and occasionally collaborated with many orchestras.

Thanks to his knowledge, he has advised several projects such as the new organ of the Parish Church of Santa Rita in Madrid. He is currently the organist in the Parish Church of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the neighbourhood of Argüelles and the Parish Church of Santa Rita in Chamberí, Madrid.

The organ was built in the 20th century by the prestigious organ builder Albert Blancafort and his team, the Auditorium's organ is considered a unique instrument in the world for its design, sound and musical ranges. The sounds are produced by 3,835 pipes that are housed in the walls of the emblematic Symphony Hall, which are controlled by the organist from on-stage through the console where he is performing.

The tickets can be purchased at a single price of €15 on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Check the special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed and large families.

On 6 September the Auditorium’s Chamber Hall welcomes a journey through five centuries of history of fantasies for the keyboard

 

The Auditorio de Tenerife is a cultural venue linked to the Department of Culture of the Tenerife Island Council that is managed by its island's Minister of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. The Chamber Music Cycle begins with the concert Fantasías, carried out by the acclaimed French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard. The performance takes place on Tuesday, 6 September at 7.30 p.m. in the Chamber Hall.

Fantasias is a performance that explores five centuries of history with a musical genre and a variety of forms, imbued by its distinctive free nature. Throughout the history of music, fantasia has been the musical genre par excellence in which composers have found the structural refuge enabling them to have maximum freedom in terms of organisation and the perfect mechanism for giving free rein to their creativity.

In this performance, the pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard presents a journey through the world of fantasia for the keyboard, from the 16th and early 17th century, with the fantasia of the Dutch composer Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck. His work encompasses the period from the end of the Renaissance and the early baroque period, to the Fantasy on Iambic Rhythm for piano composed in 1985 by the British composer George Benjamin. There is also room for the Russian composer Andrei Volkonsky who composed Musica stricta in 1957, a fantasia piece of great historical importance for Russian music, as it was the first to use the twelve-tone technique.

The performance had to include three of the most important fantasy by Mozart. His extraordinary improvisational genius is further enhanced by language that is as free as it is bold. Continuing with classicism, there is also a performance of the second of the sons of J. S. Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel, with his Fantasia for piano, full of colour and dynamism, and L. van Beethoven with his Fantasia op. 77.

Widely acclaimed as a key figure in the music of our time, Pierre-Laurent Aimard has had close collaborations with many leading composers including György Ligeti, Karlheinz Stockhausen, George Benjamin, Pierre Boulez and Oliver Messiaen.

Aimard begins the 2022/2023 season by receiving Denmark's most prominent music award, the Leonie Sonning Music Prize 2022, which will be celebrated in a series of concerts with the Royal Danish Orchestra/Cambreling and recitals in Copenhagen and Aarhus. Elsewhere, he works closely with leading orchestras and conductors across Europe. At the same time, he is recording Bartók's complete piano concertos with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Esa-Pekka Salonen, to return afterwards to the Los Angeles Philharmonic for Beethoven's Piano Concerto No.4.

Pierre-Laurent Aimard will stay longer on the island to participate as a guest soloist in the opening concert of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra season. The show takes place on 9 September at the Symphony Hall at 7:30 pm and will be conducted by the director Marta Gardolinska.

Aimard's recent seasons have included the successful release on CD of Beethoven's Große Sonate für das Hammerklavier (Hammerklavier Sonata) and Eroica Variations for Pentatone, as well as Messiaen's opus magnum Catalogue d'oiseaux which was honoured with multiple awards including the prestigious German music critic's award "Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik".

Tickets for the piano concert are available on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com, at the auditorium's box office or by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The tickets can be purchased at a single price of €15. Check the special discounts for the audience under 30 years of age, students, unemployed, large families, opera subscription holders and holders of the TEN+JUB and TEN+DIS cards issued by the Tenerife Island Council.

The Auditorio de Tenerife is presenting the FAM Autumn Programme.  Seven shows take place between September and December on the stages of this island building and at the Espacio La Granja of the Government of the Canary Islands. All the information and tickets are now available on www.famtenerife.com.

The first event takes place on 17 September with two shows, 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., at the Chamber Hall but with a limited capacity as TRES de Ballet Triádico, by Taiat Dansa, will take place within the mechanism that the company itself has designed, a kind of a large white ball inside which the audience sits on cushions.

The next event with dance takes place outside the Auditorio de Tenerife at 7:00 p.m. with the proposal by the Catalan dancer Magí Serra and the Slovenian dancer Anamaria Klajnšček. Cossoc is a dance duet, a hypnotic choreography which displays the complexity and simplicity of a relationship.

On 30 September at 8:00 p.m., Espacio La Granja is hosting one of the shows of FAM Autumn, the solo The very last northern white rhino, by Gaston Core. Performed by the dancer Oulouy, this piece emerged out of the news of the death of the last northern white rhino, leaving a mother and its daughter as the last members of its species, with no chance of continuing.

On 21 October at 7:30 p.m. in the Castillo Hall at the Auditorio de Tenerife, we will witness  Parece nada, the stage project of Guillermo Weickert. Based on an attempt to place the organ of perception (the eyes) as the perceived object (viewed), he proposes an exercise of taking another look at the stage, those who inhabit it and their movements as a testing ground.

The family proposal of the programme is Ehuna, of Teatro Paraíso, and it will take place on 29 October at 5:00 p.m. at the Chamber Hall, a creation for young children (recommended for children aged between 1 and 5) which explores the way that the body is linked to movement through textiles, fabrics and clothing.

He is accompanied by Conchi, who is responsible for cleaning and cooking. Over the show, a wide variety of characters will come to the bar, which will be the setting of forbidden loves, vices, complicities, and madness. One day, things get out of control due to the death of an acquaintance and an accident that includes a coffin, an old woman whose memory is failing and a winning lottery number.

Nine performers from the Tatrum theatre association bring this proposal to life. José Manuel Sosa will be Manolo, the bar owner, while Yesica Rodríguez will be Conchi, the cook. Hugo Rodríguez will play Carlos the teacher and Mariana Rodríguez will be Silvia, mother of Leticia, who will be in the role of Yolanda Peña. Luisa and Paco are the workers at the funeral home, roles played by Olga Vanesa Curotto and José Luis Rubio, respectively. Lastly, Olgui González will become Blanca, the widow, and Pepe Damas will play Jesus, the plumber. 

The work Bar Manolo was created by Jean Pierre Martínez and directed by Irene Pérez. The costumes and stage design of this show, which involves the collaboration of the Council of Tacoronte, is provided by the theatre group itself.

The programme Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre) is part of the Educational and Social Area of the Auditorio de Tenerife. This programme encourages interest in the hobby of theatre and the production of theatrical plays by the existing associations in Tenerife. It aims to stimulate matters such as communication, the exchange of ideas, and creativity amongst members who, in turn, belong to youth collectives, cultural collectives, women's collectives, and neighbourhood groups, among others.

Its main objectives are to promote a liking for theatre among the different social and cultural groups, as well as to promote the general public's attendance to, and love of, theatrical plays; likewise, to contribute to enriching the technical/artistic quality of amateur theatre groups and to create different work groups (directors, actors, costume designers, seamstresses, playwrights, scriptwriters, etc.).

Shows for schools and social shows, teaching guides and educational resources structure the proposal with 128 activities.

The Educational and Social Department of the Auditorio de Tenerife benefitted a total of 15,000 people in the season that has just ended. They participated in the 128 activities carried out by the project which involves the departments of Culture and Education of the Council of Tenerife. Shows for schools and social shows, classroom performances, meetings with teachers, teaching guides and educational resources structure the proposal.

The activities took place from November 2021 to June 2022, and in the first half of this period, the capacities were still constrained by measures against COVID-19. The programme Teatro en la Escuela (Theatre at School), which brings performing arts and music to classrooms all over the island, had 89 shows and 7,120 spectators. The ten educational concerts by the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra held at the Auditorio brought together 2,749 people. The school and public shows of Opera en familia (Family Opera) with Les contes d’Hoffmann (The Tales of Hoffmann) had 2,700 attendees.

The programmes Escuelas de Teatro (Theatre Schools), which holds theatre classes grouped according to age in 12 municipalities on the island, and Teatro Aficionado (Amateur Theatre), which promotes this art among cultural associations, brought together more than 300 people among the participants and the public. They attended the final displays or shows of both initiatives. The fifteen other education and family shows were enjoyed by 2,3031 people.

Last weekend, the Department of the Auditorio actively participated in the programme of the annual event of the Network of Organisers of Educational and Social Concerts (ROCE) to which the Auditorio de Tenerife belongs. It took place in San Sebastian under the slogan Leadership, diversity and innovation in management models.

The Educational and Social Department of the Auditorio de Tenerife was created with the aim of bringing arts and creative processes to all citizens, with a particular focus on school pupils and people at risk of social exclusion. One of its objectives is to nurture the relationship between artistic and cultural activities with the way in which they are conveyed to society and to encourage space for building a relationship between art and people. Its main idea is for art to make an unquestionable contribution to social wellbeing, the recognition of individual and collective identity, as well as training and the use of critical thinking needed for mature democratic social coexistence.
