‘El circo de Don Nicanor’, ‘Cuentan las voces’ and ‘Abemon’ comprise the educational proposals of this season 


The tickets are already on sale to enjoy any of the three family concerts offered by the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra during the season 2023-2024. El circo de Don Nicanor (Don Nicanor’s Circus), Cuentan las voces (All voices count) and Abemon (cuando el agua suena) (Abemon, the water sound) comprise the proposal of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra. The three concerts take place in the Auditorio de Tenerife on 18 November, 2 February and 11 May, respectively; with the script and narration by Ana Hernández Sanchiz.

The delegate for Culture of the Island Council, José Carlos Acha, highlighted that “the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra was one of the first orchestras to launch the initiative of educational concerts in the era of Víctor Pablo Pérez and since then they have remained as one of the focuses of the work of our musicians.” “This offer is an excellent opportunity to attract new audiences, in some cases, for the first time to classical music” added the vice-president of the island Corporation. 

The Toy Piano and an ensemble from the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra will perform El circo de Don Nicanor, (Don Nicanor’s Circus), a piece narrated in verse with music by Victor Trescolí Sanz which recounts the adventures of the character with different animals that he rescues and with whom he decides to open a diverse circus in which each one contributes their skills. This first concert will be held at the Chamber Hall and includes two performances, the first at 11:00 a.m., especially suitable for babies and children under 3 years of age, and the second one at 12.30 noon for children over three years of age.

Cuentan las voces is a visual story by Ana Hernández Sanchiz that brings together the instruments of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra and the voices of the choir formed by the audience attending the show through a varied repertoire of symphonic and vocal music. This concert is suitable for families with children over 6 years of age and will be held at the Symphony Hall on Friday, 2 February, at 12:00 noon.

The conductor Ignacio García Vidal leads the orchestra to perform Abemon (cuando el agua suena) (Abemon, the water sound), a journey to the Canarian Aboriginal world with the liquid element as the guiding thread. Through contemporary dance, creative space and voice will be given to the people who want to be a part of an original choreographic creation, directed by Antonio Quiles. This third proposal takes place on 11 May 2024 at 12:00 noon in the Symphony Hall and is recommended for families with children over 9 years old.
