Music in the Parks 2019

There were 44 free concerts in 34 different green spaces in the city between 31 May and 30 August 2019.

“Music in the Parks” started over twenty years ago with the aim of offering high-quality music for all kinds of audiences and encouraging the presence of young musicians. At the same time the programme aims to exploit the potential of parks as recreational spaces for people to enjoy together on summer evenings.

This series of free summer concerts in the city’s parks and gardens, organised by Barcelona City Council, includes various styles of music, such as classical and jazz.

2019 edition

The 2019 edition of Music in the Parks attracted 14,200 visitors, filling the various parks and gardens in the city. This series of free summer concerts started twenty-four years ago with the aim of offering quality music for all audiences and boosting the presence of young musicians. At the same time, the programme aims to exploit the potential of parks as recreational spaces for people to enjoy together on summer evenings.

This year’s edition of Music in the Parks featured 44 concerts in a variety of styles, such as classical music, jazz, blues and formations from music schools. Some of the musicians and performers who took part were selected by this year’s jury, offering small-format concerts, quartets at most. All the musicians were aged between 16 and 35.

Also taking part were 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.

In order for people to get a better understanding of the social and environmental benefits of parks and gardens, this year’s edition again offered guided visits ahead of the concerts in the districts, with eleven tours explaining the history, biodiversity and special features of these spaces. There was also a visit to the Fàbrica del Sol, in the Parc de la Barceloneta. Around 300 people were able to enjoy these guided activities.
