Enjoy the music for Santa Eulàlia!
Friday 9, at 8.15 pm and Saturday 10, at 9 pm
Plaça de Sant Jaume
The Winter Festa Major Festival will be filled with music to accompany the dances and parades involving elements of popular culture, but that’s not all!
This year marks the commemoration of the bicentenary of the birth of the musician, poet and journalist Josep Anselm Clavé. He was a strong defender of men’s and women’s rights and promoting associations, and he created the Moviment Coral Català (Catalan Choral Movement). For this reason, 2024 will be a great year for activities associated with music and other fields, given the composer’s enormous significance. The Federació de Cors de Clavé (Clavé Choirs Federation) has prepared numerous celebrations and commemorations for the maestro’s birth and the first major event will be held during the Santa Eulàlia festivities.
The Group Sau 30 will be joining the Coral Cantanna de Vic and La Veu de Voltregà choirs in a magical concert to revisit and sing their greatest hits with Pep Sala and the group, merging choral singing and rock while paying tribute to Carles Sabater, to inaugurate the 2024 Clavé Bicentenary. On Saturday 10, in Plaça de Sant Jaume, they will be waiting to perform songs for you, such as El tren de mitjanit, Ningú ens mourà d’aquí, Envia’m un àngel and, of course, Boig per tu.
And for only the second time, Tradicionàrius will come down from the Vila de Gràcia to Plaça de Sant Jaume. On Friday 9, the 37th Tradicionàrius International Folk Festival will fill the Santa Eulàlia Festivities with music, with a folk dance and concert. At 8.15 pm, Glam Folk will get the whole square dancing with a “xotis” to the beat of Oques Grasses, a “ball pla” with Strombers and a mazurka to the beat of Metallica. At 10 pm, it will be the turn of La Cosina. From El Baix Camp, the group will be presenting their record Hores vinguin, an invitation to sing and dance their joyful but committed songs, in a highly festive concert.
The following day, the Moll de la Fusta quay will be the venue of the festivities for the city’s youngest citizens, at the Lali Jove! At 8 pm, the Barna Jove 2023 awards will be presented to the winning organisations, followed at 8.30 pm with concerts by Fades, Svetlana, Sexenni and DJ Trapella.
