The Auditorio de Tenerife, cultural space linked to the Department of Culture of Tenerife Island Council, is managed by its Director of Culture, Enrique Arriaga. It offers three concerts and two workshops as part of the FMUC 2021 programme. This year's edition kicks off on Saturday, 29 May with a workshop. On Tuesday, 1 June 2021 at 7:30 pm, the first show takes place: Música de hoy para trío, by NeoArs Sonora. Tickets are on sale. 

The main objective of the Ensemble NeoArs Sonora is to support and foster the excellence of contemporary music. ‘Música de hoy para trío’ (Today’s music for trio) shows the sound possibilities for a flute, cello and piano trio. The concert takes place in the Chamber Hall and will be played by Juan Carlos Chornet, flute; Antonio Jesús Cruz, piano; and Kathleen Balfe, cello.

The percussion workshop that takes place in the Auditorio de Tenerife is related to body percussion, and the dancer Jep Meléndez will be in charge of it. Another masterclass, a choreographic workshop on how to apply classical music to contemporary flamenco dance, will be given by the dancer Fernando Romero on 8 June 2021. The workshop is aimed at professionals or dancers with a middle-high level of flamenco and Spanish dance.

The next concert is titled Diálogos. Debussy y Stravinsky desde el prisma del baile flamenco (Dialogues. Debussy and Stravinsky from the Flamenco dance perspective). On the 9 June at 7:30 pm, the starring dancer Fernando Romero, the piano duo Lechado-Kucháeva and the 'Ensemble Música Viva' with Verónica Cagigao and Carolina Alcaraz will give their concert.

The next appointment with the FMUC festival takes place on 17 June at 7:30 pm with the début of 'Collage".
