Music students and teachers in Lanzarote will be holding a series of concerts for the XI Semana de la Música.
The Semana de la Música is an annual event organised by the Cabildo of Lanzarote, through the Consejería de Educación y Cultura, Conservatorio and Conservatorio y Escuela de Música. Now in it’s eleventh year the concerts are a chance to witness first hand the talent of the children and their teachers during the different concerts over the course of the week.
The first event on Monday is a group of concerts at the Teatro Insular involving the students and teachers from the music school with special pieces created for the occasion including a small symphony of trumpet and other brass instruments. Later that evening in a different location teachers and old students will perform at the Sala Indieras which is near the Lucha ring in Tías. Wednesday’s first performance is one of the most memorable during the week with the youngest students from the music school. The later concert has different groups playing including the string orchestra, saxophones and trumpets. Thursday’s interpretation concert includes students of different levels from the categories of solo and chamber music. Followed by modern music and percussion concerts by the students. The week closes with a concert from the municipal bands from Tías, San Bartolomé, Conservatory and the Music School.
