Sinfónica de Tenerife is offering a new concert for families entitled Pulcinella on Saturday, 19th at 12:00 noon at Sala Sinfónica in Auditorio de Tenerife. The show, inspired by characters of commedia dell’arte, will encourage the youngest in the family to listen to live music. Conducted by Ignacio García-Vidal, Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite, derived from the ballet, and Grieg’s music will join the musical tale narrated and performed by Ana Hernández-Sanchiz.

This proposal, which is part of the orchestra’s outreach programme through Cabildo’s Tenerife 2030 strategy, is one of four didactic concerts to take place on Thursday, 17th and Friday, 18th with two performances, at 10:00 and 11:30 am. More than 4,500 primary school children will have the chance to enjoy it. Tickets for the family performance are available at 5 Euros at Auditorio de Tenerife’s box office, from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm Monday to Saturday; by telephone on 902 317 327; or on the websites and

“The story begins when Pulcinella takes her old violin and starts to play and dance, in a way only he can do…” Based on the homonymous musical tale by Fernando Palacios, this show brings children the performance of well-known scores in a unique, magic experience that includes learning about oneself. The repertoire includes Pulcinella Suite by Igor Stravinsky and Holberg Suite, op. 40, by Edvard Grieg.  

With these new performances, Sinfónica de Tenerife continues the didactic work it has been offering to the youngest and the education community. Through their outreach programme, this Cabildo’s orchestra aims at making quality culture available to all audiences -especially the youngest- through innovative, interdisciplinary proposals. At the same time, they reinforce their commitment to bring music to the community, putting an emphasis on disadvantaged groups or people who have specific needs.
