Next Sunday, November 22, the Palau de la Música Catalana organizes its usual Open Day. An event to enjoy the architecture of the modernist building World Heritage Site.
What can be visited?
For 5 hours visitors will be able to move freely through the different areas of the Palau de la Música Catalana: concert hall (stalls and second floor); the Lluís Millet hall and the balcony overlooking the garden of columns; the Petit Palau, where audiovisuals will be broadcast; the CEDOC (Centre de Documentació de l'Orfeó Català), located on the fifth floor of the Palau, which houses documentary collections dating back to the 12th century (guided tours will be organized for small groups); and the Plaza del Palau, where the Maria Canals International Music Competition will set up a piano for everyone to play.
As the Palau's activity is choral singing, attendees will be able to listen to singing performances in the Concert Hall by participants in the singing workshops, which will be free and given by Montse Meneses, deputy director of the Orfeó Català, and Mariona Fernández, choir director of the Palau Vincles Project.
There's even more
There will also be a photo contest via Twitter and Instagram, in which a menu for two at the Café del Palau, courtesy of Balot Restauració, will be raffled.
The Palau de la Música's open day is normally free but this year they are asking for a minimum donation of €1.00 to benefit the Palau Vincles social project, the Palau de la Música Catalana's socio-musical project, which aims to promote social inclusion and integration through the collective choral practice of children and young people in vulnerable areas or situations.
