'Follow the Music' offers fourteen educational concerts since November 15 – La Provincia

With a storyteller and a great orchestra, this November tour returns Follow the Music, in which 14 free and didactic concerts will be offered on stages of seven islands. These original concerts organized by the Canary Islands Government as a prelude to the Canary Islands International Music Festival They will take place from November 15 to 25 and will serve more than 2,500 schoolchildren, and the general public, to enjoy much more classical music.

Under the title His Majesty The Orchestra, the spectators who come to this event will know in a fun and entertaining way the 'secrets' of what is called a symphony orchestra and also stories, anecdotes and mysteries that surround some of the works that will be performed on this tour, which will be charge of Symphony Orchestra of the Conservatory of Music of Canarias and that will cover different styles and eras.

The details of the new circuit were presented on Monday 14, by the Minister of Education, Universities, Culture and Sports of the Government, María José Guerra, accompanied by the vice councilor Juan Marquez, and the director of the Canary Islands Music Festival, Jorge Perdigón. Also present were the director of the Conservatory of Music of the Canary Islands, Miguel Angel Linares, and the person in charge of the script and the musical selection, Ricardo Ducatenzeiler, who will also act as narrator of these concerts.

All agreed on the many facets of this project by creating synergies and bringing music to young people and an audience perhaps not accustomed to classical music, a project that also bets on the musical talent of the Canary Islands, a quality educational initiative, entertaining and motivating for both young people and adults. A project that also gives prominence to musicians in the training phase, thus allowing them to practice professionally and thereby demonstrate the fruits of the hard work they do in the musical centers.

The music will be in charge of the Symphony Orchestra of the Conservatory of Music of the Canary Islands, with script, musical selection and narration of Ricardo Ducatenzeiler, the same expert who will deal with the introductory talks to the FIMC subscription concerts, who will serve as a link between the public and music and their performers. Its objective will be to give 'clues' that allow viewers to better appreciate music and enjoy the concert experience more.

The free admission concerts will begin on Friday, November 15, at 8:00 p.m., in the Auditorium of the Conservatory in Tenerife. They will continue on Sunday 17 at the Casino de Valverde, in El Hierro (20h); on Monday 18th at the Teatro Circo de Marte in La Palma (8.30pm); on Tuesday 19th at the El Salinero Theater in Lanzarote (8.30pm), and on Wednesday 20th at the Auditorium of Antigua, in Fuerteventura (8pm). The circuit takes place on Friday 22 at the Casa de la Cultura de Valle Gran Rey, in La Gomera (8pm) and will end on Monday, November 25th at the Teatro Guiniguada de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (8pm).

In Gran Canaria, La Palma and Lanzarote it will be necessary to collect the invitations at the box office, which will be available one hour before the concert begins. In the case of the Guiniguada Theater, they may withdraw from 5:00 p.m. (two invitations per person). In the rest of the spaces the direct access until the capacity is completed.

The concerts for schoolchildren, attended by students from 52 centers, will be held in the morning, organized next to the Education area. This initiative also counts on the collaboration of the councils and town councils that host this didactic program.

The main musicians will be the members of the Orchestra of the Superior Conservatory of Music of the Canary Islands, formed by young instrumentalists from the Islands, directed by José María Vicente and by Nikoleta Popovto. In this tour he will have the participation as soloist of the young violinist from Lanzarote Pablo Araya.

The Symphony Orchestra of the Conservatory was created in 2003 with the double objective of constituting an essential element in the training of its students as professional musicians and, at the same time, to project and disseminate their work in the Canarian society. Now they will tour the Islands with a repertoire that runs from the 18th to the 20th century, with works by Bartok, Brahms, Dukas, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Schubert, Haydn, Bizet and Offenbach.

Throughout each concert, the public will be able to know the entrails and the characteristics of part of the repertoire that will be interpreted. An example of one of the most frequent musical forms in symphonies will also be given: the sonata form, and another of a solo concert. The narrator will also take the opportunity to tell how many works have a particular story, an anecdote or are surrounded by some mystery and a movement of a very famous symphony will be interpreted, which contains a surprise.

Each concert will close with a 'final traca' composed of three works: a dance in which the audience will be asked to participate from their seats, a play that was written for the theater (example of music called 'incidental') and a play It is part of a famous opera.

The circuit is designed for the public to enter the wonderful universe of music, instruments, composers, each story told behind a score, through a fun, entertaining and fun script. Also designed for spectators of all ages, for families and anyone who has an interest in knowing a little more what they hear.
