Every year the city’s green spaces fill with music thanks to the “Music in the Parks” initiative.

This series of summer concerts started fifteen years ago with the aim of offering quality music for all sectors of the public and boosting the presence of young musicians. At the same time, the initiative aims to build on the potential of parks as recreational and community spaces on summer evenings.

This year’s edition of Music in the Parks includes 49 concerts in a variety of styles, such as classical music, jazz, blues, choral groups and school-music and orchestral groups. Taking part are the musicians and performers chosen by this year’s jury: music performers offering small-format concerts, quartets at most. All the musicians taking part are aged between 16 and 35.

Also taking part are municipal music schools, keen to highlight the educational work they carry out in Barcelona, where they teach a large number of the musicians who will be moving on to higher music studies in the future.

Featured concerts

The series kicks off on 2 June with The Sey Sisters, who will be performing at 9 pm in the Parc de la Barceloneta. The Sey Sisters are a trio of female singers who invite their audiences to experience a musical journey through songs packed with deep emotion and often inspired by the fight against injustice, the defence of human rights and hope for the future.

The series will be celebrating World Music Day, on 21 June, with a performance from the Barcelona Coral Àsia at the former La Model prison, starting at 8 pm. Barcelona Coral Àsia is a project promoting intercultural meetings through music and songs, launched by Casa Àsia and the Department for Citizen Rights and Immigration at Barcelona City Council, bringing together some 50 individuals from 24 different countries.

The grand finale to the 2018 edition of Music in the Parks will be on Thursday, 30 August, at the Parc del Clot, with a concert from the Txell Sust & August Tharrats Trio starting at 9 pm.

Guided tours

In a city like Barcelona, green spaces are urban lungs which act as leisure and recreational sites as well as helping regulate the temperature and diminish noise pollution. They are also the home of varied flora and fauna.

For the purposes of promoting the social and environmental benefits of parks and gardens, this year’s event will be offering pre-concert guided tours as it did last year. That means a chance for people to get a greater understanding of the history and biodiversity of these sites, as well as learn interesting facts which are sure to surprise.

The guided tours will be given before the Music in the Parks concerts, with limited places (you will need to book in advance). If you wish to book a place, you should do so through the Fàbrica del Sol website.
