The Palau de la Música will once again host a benefit concert organized by the Barcelona Association of Family Members with Malalts d'Alzheimer (AFAB). The concert will be performed by the JOSB (Jove Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona) which will perform a varied reportorio.
This concert is one of the many events that the AFAB organizes each year to commemorate World Alzheimer's Day. Its objective is to raise funds to support families with members suffering from Alzheimer's, and to make society aware of the problems in which they find themselves.
