Today, the OBC will offer on San Sebastian beach, the most popular concert of the season, a free event that will start at 9:00 p.m. The Polish maestro Michal Nesterowicz, good connoisseur of the Symphonic Orchestra of Barcelona and National Orchestra of Catalonia (OBC), will be in charge of capturing the event in 2019.
It is an ideal day to enjoy a concert on the beach, and for free. People chose to extend a little more the day of sun with a picnic included in many cases, near the hotel W of Barcelona.
It is already the fifth edition of the concert of the Symphonic Orchestra of Barcelona and National of Catalonia (OBC) organized jointly with the Auditori, to celebrate the Day of Music that coincides with the first bars of the summer.
As usual, two giant screens and a powerful sound system will allow the concert to be followed by those who have not been able to get close to the stage in front of the W Hotel. 15,000 people usually attend the event.
The Symphonic Orchestra of Barcelona and National of Catalonia welcomes the summer, in a festive way, thanks to this concert, especially aimed at the public that does not usually attend the concerts held at the Auditori. Álvaro Albiach will direct the proposal, centered on the music of Leonard Bernstein (who celebrates the centenary of his birth), soundtracks and great hits of classical music.
The music of the 20th century will be the protagonist of this concert following the same line as the new season of the Orchestra at the Auditori. This year the concert will be recorded by TV3 and can be followed live by the radio station Catalunya Música, and those who can not get close to the beach can see it on Channel 33 on the night of June 23, coinciding with the festival.
