This weekend we can enjoy good concerts within some of the festivals in the Valencian Community. Our Spanish school, El Rincón del Tandem, tells you more in today’s post 😊

Music is an essential element of Valencia’s summer plans. Therefore, in the summer there is a varied offer of festivals in the Valencian Community.

So that our Spanish students can take advantage of the cultural events of the summer, we will tell them more about these musical events.

Let’s star!

XIII Festival de Música de Cámara de Godella

Till August 1
Teatro Capitolio y Villa Eugenia (Godella)

This festival is an important event for all lovers of chamber music. The Godella Chamber Music Festival began in 2009 and since then, has become a benchmark among festivals dedicated to this musical genre.

This year’s edition focuses on two ideas: the blending of cultures and resilience. In fact, the program, which includes prominent names from the Valencian, national and international music scene, is inspired by music as a means of emotional healing and intercultural dialogue.

This Saturday 24 will take place a double concert session:

Valencian musicians in time of war and post-war. At 20.00 at the Teatro Capitolio.

The ensemble of the festival and the trio Arbós will play a repertoire of themes composed by Valencian musicians

Word music, jazz and more, at 23.00h in Villa Eugenia.

The Robindro Nikolic Trio will delight audiences with world music with influences from jazz and classical music.

We hope this post about festivals in the Valencian Community will help you make plans for this weekend. As always, we invite you to enjoy the culture safely and to know a little more about our wonderful Valencia.

Finally, we encourage you to practice your Spanish outside the classroom and in everyday situations.
