After the opening with Ramón Gener, the cultural popularizer who has never hidden his fascination with Ludwig Van Beethoven, today it is Sheila Blanco’s turn, with the musical conference Beethoven: influence and connections of artists from different disciplines in which she will show her enormous talent and his great communication skills. The Salamanca singer has long earned the affection and respect of thousands of people with her viral editions of the Bioclassic. It is about his particular tribute to the great composers of music by reviewing their biographies on some of their most important pieces. He has already done it with Bach on his Badinerie, with Mozart, on his Piano Sonata No. 11 in A major, K.331 and also with Beethoven, on his Symphony No. 5 in C minor. The result has been overwhelming and with exceptional criticism for its great virtues. Blanco was also a teacher of the contestants on the La Voz Kids program and conquered Alejandro Sanz himself with his Bach video, who shared it on his social networks.
The invitations for the conference and the tickets for the concerts are already available on the Auditorium website www.auditorioalfredokraus.es and all the information on the festival is available on the social networks of Clásicos en Colores and at www.clasicosencolores.es.
