This Saturday's event also includes a concert by the band of the federation 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' to celebrate the Day of the Canary Islands


This Sunday, 29 May, at 10:30 a.m., the Auditorio de Tenerife hosts at the Chamber Hall a new concert of the "Primavera Musical" cycle, organised by the federation 'Federación Tinerfeña de Bandas de Música' with the collaboration of the Tenerife Island Council. On this occasion, there will be bands’ performances from Igueste de Candelaria, La Victoria and the band José Manuel Cabrera Mejías, from Icod de los Vinos.

The association 'Asociación Musical Nueva Banda', under the direction of Luis Torres Oliva, will perform in this edition three works: Havana blues, by composer Chico O'Farrill, Café sin leche (Coffee without milk), by Claudio Roditi, and Rebelión, by Joe Arroyo.

The second band, La Victoria, comes from the northern municipality of the Acentejo region. Conducted by Humberto García Afonso, the wind band starts its performance with Albert Ketelbey's En un mercado persa (In A Persian Market), The Lion King, arranged by John Higgins, and a medley by pieces of Ennio Morricone, arranged by Johan de Meij.

The band 'Agrupación Musical José Manuel Cabrera Mejías', from Icod de los Vinos, offers at the Auditorio de Tenerife three pieces from their repertoire: Siempre noble y leal (Always noble and loyal) by José Luis Peiró; Ross Roy, composed by Jacob de Haan, and El tío Caniyitas (Uncle Caniyitas), by Ricardo Dorado Janeiro. The band is conducted by Juan Alexis González Rodríguez.

This performance of Primavera Musical starts at 10:30 a.m., an hour earlier than usual for this series of concerts in the Chamber Hall because the band of the Federación Tinerfeña will give a concert at 1:30 p.m. in the Symphonic Hall on the occasion of the Day of the Canary Islands.

Conducted by Juan Antonio Rancel, the programme includes works by Manuel Morales, Miguel del Castillo -arranged by Agustín Ramos-, José Manuel Encinoso and Antón Alcalde. The timple-player David Duque features as a soloist the pieces by Encinoso and Cabrera.
