There will be three performances lasting around twenty minutes spread between this December and February and March 2023.
The Chamber Orchestra of Mallorca, with the support of the Town Hall of Inca, will launch a series of micro-concerts in the market with the aim of making it more dynamic and also raising awareness of the activity of the Teatro Principal de ‘Inca. Thus, three short performances will be held between December 2022 and March 2023.
As for the first micro-concert, it will be a String Quartet on 22 December. Regarding the second, the performance will be given by the Brass Quintet on 23 February 2023. Finally, the third and last micro-concert will be an opera, with voice and piano, on 27 March 2023.
The concerts, which will be repeated in three sessions (at 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and 12 noon) and will take place on Thursdays, are designed to be dynamic and last no longer than 20 minutes.
“The intention is to broaden the view of the market so that it is not conceived only as a space for consumption but as a place where local commerce and culture merge,” says Bernat Quetglas, director of the Orquesta de Cámara de Mallorca. In addition, “the initiative also aims to contribute to the promotion of the activity of the Teatro Principal de Inca and bring it to everyone,” adds Miquel Àngel Raió, director of the Teatro Principal de Inca.
“With this commitment, Inca consolidates its firm will to open up to new sectors and also to new audiences, both locals and visitors, through a showcase of our city such as the municipal market”, declares the councillor for Economic Promotion, María José Fernández.
Chamber Orchestra of Mallorca
Since its birth in 2016, the Chamber Orchestra of Mallorca has become one of the main players on the music scene in the Balearic Islands. Based at the Conservatory of Inca, it has already performed in more than 20 different municipalities, bringing concert music to municipalities where this type of offer does not normally reach.
“We are very happy that such an emblem of our island as the Chamber Orchestra of Mallorca is committed to this type of initiative, which not only opens up our city to all islanders but also promotes cultural dynamism through ‘an emblem of our city such as the market’, concludes the mayor of Inca, Virgilio Moreno.
