The Festival de Pollença 2008

The renown and acclaimed Festival de Pollença starts today with its 47th edition.

This year’s programme is launched with the Messa da Requiem by Giuseppe Verdi, which is performed by the Orquestra Simfònica de Balears Coral Universitat (Choral  of the Symphonic Orchestra of the Balearic University). All performances are staged open air at the Claustre de Sant Domingo, in Pollença, and start at 22h00. Entry admission for tonight’s concert is 30 € and 40 €. All other concerts are offered from between 20 € and 45 €.

Spanish baritone Joan Pons, is not only the new director of the Pollença Festival, he also sings tonight, in one of his rare performances in his Balearic homeland. No, the Maestro is not from Mallorca; he was born in Ciutadella, on the neighbouring island of Menorca (Spain). 

The festival offers a total of eleven concerts, including one performed by the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, one performed by Michel Camilo Trio, one performed by the Kammerorchester Berlin; sandwiched in-between are performances from soprano Maria Guleghina, pianist Alexei Volodin, the German Brass ensemble, and Ensemble Sarband

The festival continues until August 30th, when it finally closes with gospel music performed by The Voices of New Orleans.
