If you have run out of plans after the Christmas holidays, take a look at the blog of our Spanish school, El Rincón del Tándem. For this weekend, we have selected concerts and other events in Valencia. 😊
This new year starts with a very diverse and rich cultural agenda. From all the proposals, we have chosen a couple of concerts and other events in Valencia.
So that students of our Spanish school can enjoy the cultural life of our city and practice their Spanish in everyday life, we leave below our suggestions for this weekend.
Let’s see them in details!
II Música en construcción
Saturday 8 at 6pm
Centro Cultural La Beneficencia, Calle Corona 36
The second edition of Música en construcción starts tomorrow. An important initiative that promotes the young promises of Valencian music.
The duo Euphussion, made up of Jordi Roca (percussion) and Luís Sellés (euphonium) will premiere this edition with a repertoire that combines themes from the 19th century with contemporary works from the Valencian, Spanish and international music scene.
In addition, the concerts of this cycle will take place in the Sala Alfonso el Magnánimo. A marvellous neo-Byzantine style chapel whose charm will leave you speechless.
Finally, to enjoy this musical evening, you must book in advance on the Beneficencia’s website.
Quino, Mafalda y mucho más
Till January 30, from Monday to Sunday, from 11am to 6pm
Edificio del Reloj del Puerto de Valencia
The historic clock building of the Port of Valencia pays tribute to Quino and his work with this fantastic exhibition.
Quino, Mafalda y mucho más brings together more than 200 Mafalda cartoons, advertising posters and audiovisuals.
The exhibition offers the public an overview of the work of Joaquín Salvador Lavador Tejón (Quino), the Argentinian cartoonist, while celebrating his critical and committed point of view.
The journey into Quino’s world is made up of three parts. Quino’s Humour, which tells us about the meaning of his art, while at the same time bringing us closer to the technical aspects of his work. Mafalda, which brings together some of his most famous character’s cartoons and his faithful friends Manolitos, Felipe, Guille, etc.
And finally, the Tribute to Quino, a session dedicated to the awards received by the author.
Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 at 7pm
Sala Off, Calle del Turia 43
Fee: from 13 euros
Pura is a play by director Gustavo del Rio. Pura, the director’s grandmother and the main character of this play, takes us to a world full of memories and places from the past.
On the occasion of her 94th birthday, Pura wishes to return to the Paris cinema. A cinema that no longer exists and has been replaced by a shop.
If you want to know more about this nostalgic story, you can get your ticket here.
Concierto Centenario Berlanga
Saturday 8 at 7.30pm
L’Almodí, Plaza San Luís Beltrán
Valencia continues to celebrate the centenary of the birth of one of the essential directors of Spanish cinema. This time it does so with a unique concert at the Almodí.
The musician Pablo García-Berlanga pays tribute to his great-uncle with a repertoire made up of soundtracks from some of the director’s films. Among them, the pianist will play themes by authors such as Piazzolla, G. Guerrini and Fuster.
Finally, you can book your free place here.
We hope that our suggestions will help you to enjoy concerts and other events in Valencia.
Our Spanish school, El Rincón del Tánde, wishes you a weekend of leisure and culture.
And as always, we encourage you to get to know Valencia better by practising Spanish outside the classroom.
See you soon!
