The Santa Maria la Major Church in Inca and the Santa Creu Church in Palma will host this April two new concerts of Capella Mallorquina, sponsored by the Barceló Foundation.
The first of them will take place on April 24 (Saturday) in the capital of Raiguer. From 5 pm and under the direction of José María Moreno, the choir will offer a recital in which they will perform Vivaldi’s ‘Gloria’ and Fauré’s ‘Requiem’. For the occasion, they will count with the performances as soloists Cristina Van Roy, Serena Pérez and José María Moreno and with Bartomeu Manresa as organist.
A few days later, the music of Capella Mallorquina will delight its audience again, this time in Palma, with the concert scheduled for the 29th (Thursday) in the Church of Santa Creu. With the same repertoire as in the Inca, this time José María Moreno will be accompanied in the direction by José Martínez. And they will repeat as soloists both he, as Cristina Van Roy and Serena Perez and as organist, Bartomeu Manresa.
As in all their concerts since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, they will perform a maximum of 40 choristers wearing masks and keeping a safety distance of one and a half meters. Also, due to capacity limitations, Capella Mallorquina recommends its audience to book their tickets by calling 630 90 90 53.
All funds raised through the ticket, will go to the solidarity food distribution project ‘Alisol’, through which the Barceló Foundation provides fresh food to 18 social organizations working with people in social vulnerability.
The Capella Mallorquina was founded in 1966 by B. Julià and since 1999 is directed by José María Moreno. With the sponsorship of the Barceló Foundation, it develops a wide variety of performances that consolidate it as a musical reference, with recognized national and international prestige.
Its staff ranges between 60 and 100 members and its musical activity includes concerts of sacred music, with a diversity of styles and musical periods, in which it has the collaboration of important conductors, soloists and orchestras, both national and international.
It should be noted that the Coral Capella Mallorquina has performed in the main capitals of the world and throughout its career has been recognized with important awards such as the Diploma of Honor of the City of Palma; the Award of the City of Palma Awards; the Silver Medal of Fomento de Turismo, the Medal of the Círculo de Bellas Artes or the Silver Siurell, among others.
