The Church of Santa Catalina Thomàs of Palma has hosted this Thursday the first concert of the year of the Capella Mallorquina choir, sponsored by the Barceló Foundation. A highly anticipated recital after the cancellation of the concert scheduled for January due to restrictions to fight the Covid-19 and managed to fill the entire capacity allowed in this temple of Palma.
“The Capella wanted to prepare in this time a very festive repertoire, which serves as a celebration after two months without music. We chose to make a very international journey through the music of different countries, with popular works or great authors from New Zealand, Israel, Czech Republic, Argentina, Guinea, South Africa or Kenya. Among the Spanish repertoire, two popular pieces from the Basque Country and Andalusia stood out, and among the pieces by Majorcan composers, those by Bernat Julià and Baltasar Samper stood out, always inspired by traditional music,” the choir said.
Thus, during the concert directed by José Martínez a total of 12 pieces were performed with the participation of soprano soloists Camila Durán and Laura Melo, as well as tenor Gerónimo Seib.
It should be noted that all the money raised through the charitable donation of the ticket, will go to the solidarity food distribution of Alisol project, by the Barceló Foundation.
After this recital in the Church of Santa Catalina Thomàs, the next performances of Capella Mallorquina will take place in April: on April 1, on the occasion of the Holy Thursday Mass, in the Church of Santa Eulalia; and on April 29, in the Church of Mercè, where they will perform a polyphonic concert.
