The Church of Santa Creu in Palma will host a new Capella Mallorquina concert on November 26th at 8 pm, sponsored by the Barceló Foundation. On this occasion, attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy a choral and organ recital, which will feature Cristina Can Roy as solo soprano and Bartomeu Manresa as organist.
As they did at the October concert in the Basilica of Sant Miquel, following the new health regulations issued by COVID-19, will perform a maximum of 30 choir members, maintaining a safety distance and the obligatory use of a mask.
“On this occasion we will have a program that combines baroque and contemporary music. A large part of the repertoire will be based on the work of Bach, although we will also perform modern pieces, such as Haan’s ‘Misa brevis de Jacob’,” explained José María Moreno, the choir director, who is pleased to be able to count on the collaboration of the organist of the Santa Creu Church, Bartomeu Manresa.
Due to the new limitations of the capacity the Capella Mallorquina recommends to its public to book its tickets calling to the telephone of the coordinator of the choir, Montse Isern: 630 90 90 53.
“Once again we have chosen to give the concert a solidary aspect and we will use the donation of the entrance to the project of distribution of solidary food ‘Alisol’, through which the Barceló Foundation provides fresh food to 14 social entities that work with people in situation of social vulnerability”, emphasizes Moreno.
If the evolution of the coronavirus pandemic does not prevent it, the Capella Mallorquina will offer another concert before the end of the year, in Santa Eulalia.
The Capella Mallorquina was founded in 1966 by B. Julià and since 1999 it has been directed by José María Moreno. With the sponsorship of the Barceló Foundation it develops a great variety of performances that consolidate it as a musical reference, with recognized national and international prestige.
Its staff ranges from 60 to 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 national and international conductors, soloists and orchestras.
It is worth mentioning that the Capella Mallorquina Choir has performed in the main capitals of the world and throughout its history it has been recognized with such important awards as the Diploma of Honor from the City of Palma; the City of Palma Award; the Silver Medal of Tourism Promotion, the Medal of the Circle of Fine Arts or the Silver Siurell, among others.
