Outstanding concert by the Freixenet Orchestra

The Freixenet Symphony Orchestra of the Reina Sofía School of Music has given an outstanding concert for the celebration of the 25th Anniversary of the creation of the of Spanish World Heritage Cities Group. Thousands of people attended the concert held on 16 June in front of the facade of the University of Alcalá, the most emblematic work of the Complutense heritage.

Under the baton of conductor Jaime Martín, the Freixenet Symphony Orchestra performed a select programme comprising works by Rossini, Sibelius and Beethoven. The event was attended by the Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism of the Government of Spain, Reyes Maroto, Secretary of State for Tourism, Isabel Oliver, and the president of the Reina Sofia School of Music, Paloma O'Shea, among other leading figures.

Freixenet’s connection with the educational and artistic project of the Reina Sofía School of Music dates back to 1995, when it took charge of the Chamber Orchestra. With this patronage work, Freixenet contributes to boosting the musical careers of young performers, providing students with the teaching and experience they need to access the great Spanish and international orchestras.

The Spanish World Heritage Cities Group is an association created in 1993 that works to defend the historical and cultural heritage of 15 prominent municipalities that have received this important acclamation from UNESCO, and which include Salamanca, Santiago de Compostela, Toledo, Tarragona and the own Alcalá de Henares.

The concert was recorded by Spanish national television for the programme "Los conciertos de la 2" and was also broadcast live through streaming.
