Auditorio de Tenerife and Asociación Tinerfeña de Amigos de la Música (Atadem) [Tenerife Friends of Music Association] present this new series with the aim of spreading unusual music on the Island. This idea led to the setting up of Pan-Hispanic Creative, coordinated by Conrado Álvarez and with Rosario Álvarez as artistic director. Ms. Álvarez explained that they will approach “music by Canarian composers and Latin American music, as very little of their huge piano, singing or chamber repertoires is known here. In this continent, after the different Independence movements of its territories, composers developed a language exclusive to their particular region”.

“We’ll show the audience some of this fresh, colourful creations. We are aware of this rich heritage and compare it with some of our own compositions, which are the result of the thoughts and work of both past and present authors. They have helped to develop native musical creation, which has led to our achieving a relevant national position”, Rosario Álvarez revealed.

Tickets for the three concerts can be purchased at Auditorio de Tenerife’s box office from 10:00 am to 7:30 pm Monday to Saturday except holidays; via or by phone on 902 317 327.
