Valencia: A city with a soundtrack
It’s obvious that music is a fundamental thing inside the Valencian Community. Anywhere we look it’s demonstrated how much this art is important to the Valencian people.
A clear example are our festivities, practically every Valencian celebration is accompanied with music and the Fallas are a clear example of it. During this festivity Valencia receives trifles from more than one hundred bands, and the mayority comes from the rest of the Valencian community, so that totally there are more than 500.
It’s not important if the town is small, it’s normal that each one has its own band.
The «Palau de la música» and the «Palau de les arts reina Sofía» are another example. In the first one we can find a very variated programme as more as we get close to Christmas, dates in which the Palau offers the Christmas concert and the New Year’s Eve concert-gala, but during the rest of the year we can join musicals, ballets and concerts from different orchestras (among which there is the philharmonic of Valencia).
In the «Palau de les arts reina Sofía» we can join the operas like for example the famous La Traviata or l’Italiana in Algeri.
We should also note that this futuristic building, in its south annex, hosts the prestigious Berklee School of Music, which the only venue in Europe is in Valencia. Through this school the most important musicians of the music scene in the coming years are passing.
The music is the star in each event: orchestras, bands, discomóviles … The Valencian village has music in the blood in a very different way than the other communities do, not in vain our city is known as The City of the Music.
This particular form of living music is also reflected in our teaching the Spanish language to foreigners, for example, in Taronja school we offer Spanish courses with guitar lessons with which you can learn the language while you discover the magic of flamenco. Go for it! The Spanish and the music are claiming you in Valencia.
