Bellver Castle (Palma) hosts the 42nd Serenates d'Estiu International Music Festival
This long tradition festival took its first steps in the Gothic cloister of Saint Francis in 1971 and coinciding with the twentieth anniversary moved to Bellver Castle. Since that year and during the month of August the castle courtyard becomes an open-air stage where prestigious musical groups offer their music to the residents and visitors´ delight.
The 42nd edition of the Serenates d'Estiu International Festival will offer this year four concerts which will be taking place on the 1st, 6th, 7th and 14th August. This festival is held in one of the most emblematic places in Palma, Bellver Castle. What is new about this edition is that it will be the first time that tickets will be sold in the castle itself, in addition to the usual points.
The Serenates d'Estiu International Music Festival starts the 1st of August with a piano concert by Joaquin Achucarro, to be followed on the 6th with a concert by the Spanish group Brass Luur Metals, with music specially adapted for families and children and whose benefits will be donated to the social organization Aspanob. The next day, the same group will perform music by Bach, Mozart, Strauss, Granados and other classical musicians. This festival will end on the 14th of August with music that will be performed by the violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky and the pianist Roger Vignoles.
