Enrique Arriaga, councillor for Culture, stresses that thirteen concerts will be offered during this edition that starts on Sunday


On Sunday, 21 March at 11:30 am, the Auditorio de Tenerife will host the first concert of the "Primavera Musical 2021". The brass bands will feature 13 concerts during this 17th edition. All bands are registered in Tenerife’s brass band federation, the public entity that organises this activity with the collaboration of Tenerife Island Council. Enrique Arriaga, councillor for Culture, mentioned that all concerts are scheduled until 13 June.

Arriaga stresses that "this edition will be special for some of the musical groups, as some of them will perform for the first time in the Auditorium’s Symphonic Hall". He added that "the Chamber Hall will continue to be the main venue for concerts, but in order to comply with safety regulations, big bands have been moved to the main hall".

The councillor recalls that "the state of emergency was declared a year ago, and it affected the last edition of Primavera Musical. Thus, only two concerts could be held". Now he is confident that "this time we will enjoy the brass band proposals, as they are important for the popular culture of the Canary Islands".

The band concerts will continue until June. They will be held in the two main halls and the tickets are free. Tickets are now available for the opening session, which will feature the "Asociación Musical Puerto de la Cruz", directed by Jairo Cabrera Estévez; the "Unión Musical Aida San Andrés", under the baton of Juan Alexis González Rodríguez, and the "Asociación Músico-Cultural Ernesto Beteta" (Santa Úrsula), conducted by Miguel Ángel Expósito Marrero.

The remaining concerts take place on 27 (Symphony Hall), and on 28 March, 4 and 25 April, 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 May, and on 12 (Symphony Hall). The last concert will be offered on 13 June. On that last day, a morning concert will be featured in the Chamber Hall and an afternoon concert will be given in the Symphony Hall. Performances in the Chamber Hall will take place at 11:30 a.m. and those in the Symphony Hall will begin at 6:00 p.m. 

Primavera Musical is an initiative that was first launched in 2005 by the federation "Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música", with the collaboration of Tenerife Island Council. Due to the lockdown, only two concerts could be held last year. The activity will set off again on Sunday this week under strict safety and hygiene measures, that are aimed at guaranteeing safety both for the public and the musicians.

Tickets can be purchased until two hours before the concert on the website www.auditoriodetenerife.com and by dialling the phone number 902 317 327 from Monday to Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The audience is requested to arrive at the venue well in advance to enter the Auditorium in staggered "waves".
