This concert, co-organized by the Reina Sofía School of Music and Berklee Valencia, combines their academic approaches with the best young talent. Featuring artists from very different backgrounds, the concert celebrates the diversity of the culture and the music of their birthplaces.

The programme, in a double session at 7pm and 9pm, includes original arrangements of world music, inspired by works by artists such as Lole y Manuel, Andrés Soto and Astor Piazzolla. A journey through the folklore of countries such as Turkey, Spain, Peru and Paraguay, accompanied by classical and traditional instruments, such as strings, saxophone and the unique qanun.

The young musicians of the Reina Sofía School of Music represent a sample of the best international talent and are the perfect complement to this artistic collaboration where north and south, east and west come together, and where classical and modern musical traditions come together in an original show.
