Christmas is one of the most endearing times of the year and aside from its traditions, the last few weeks of the year are always highly anticipated in the big cities. Barcelona is no exception and one of the traditions that have taken root with greater force in recent years is the Barcelona Christmas Concert. This musical event, which is being prepared to celebrate its fourth edition on December 19th, will take place this year with the cosponsorship of Engel & Völkers Barcelona.
The Barcelona Christmas Concert is a very exclusive event that takes place in the no less sophisticated venue of the Palau de Pedralbes. Since 2015, the organisation has managed to bring to Barcelona a truly unique musical experience. With an itinerary of exciting programmes, the public can enjoy a musical evening that words cannot possibly describe. What's more, the architectural setting, the stage, and the complementary activities will be the finishing touches to this concert.
The famous celebrity at the Barcelona's 4th Christmas Concert will be the Russian soprano, Katerina Tretyakova, who has sung on some of the best European stages. Among them is the Gran Teatro del Liceo, which awarded Tretyakova a few years ago. Soprano was one of the great promises of the orchestral direction in her youth, initiating the singer to study opera singing.
The distinguished singer will be accompanied by the pianist, Ricardo Estrada, a regular contributor to the Gran Liceo de Barcelona and who, along with his solo career, has accompanied legendary singers, such as Montserrat Caballé. Estrada is a professor at the d'Estudis Musicals Centre "A Tempo" in Barcelona.
The event will begin at 7:00 p.m. which will be enlivened by the voices of the students from the Conservatorio del Liceo. This reception will be the preamble of the great concert by Katerina Tretyakova, which will delight those who will be attending from 7:30 p.m. The agenda includes performances by Puccini, Dvorak or Verdi, although the Christmas colours will also be missing with several traditional themes from this time of the year (including the popular Catalan Christmas carol, El cant dels ocells).
At the conclusion of the recital there will be a cocktail with sampling of several high quality foods as well as a selection of different cocktails. The artists will offer the assistants help up to the end of the day. All this will take place in a cosy and intimate setting, as guaranteed by the fact that the room has capacity for only 240 people.
Engel & Völkers Barcelona will have a small counter at the premises of the Palau de Pedralbes. The attendees of the event will be able to get to know the services that the real estate agency offers in Barcelona and its surroundings as explained by the specialist estate agents of the company. Promotional material and merchandising goods will also be given out to all.
