Who We Are
Encounter of Santander
60 students, 60 instruments, 4 destinations. We celebrate the School's 30th anniversary with a unique European tour. Help us make this unrepeatable opportunity for our students true by collaborating with us.
The Reina Sofía School of Music turns 30 years old in 2021, and one of its greatest dreams throughout these three decades has been to go on a grand European tour with its students. For the first time, this goal is within reach, and we need your help to achieve it.
The Freixenet Symphony Orchestra, formed by 60 students, along with its principal director Andrés Orozco-Estrada and violinist Arabella Steinbacher, will bring their passion for music to four of Europe's most prestigious music venues. The tour will begin with a concert at the Teatro Real in Madrid on 7 October; they will then travel to Bratislava to attend its Festival on 9 October; Budapest will follow with a concert at the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music on 10 Octobr; and they will end the tour at the world-renowned Musikverein in Vienna, seat of the Wiener Philharmoniker and its classic New Year's Concert, on 12 October. During the tour, our students will collaborate with the Superar project, which provides free cultural education to children and young adults with disadvanted backgrounds.
We ask for your collaboration through a donation to ensure this unique opportunity for our students. Any and all help is welcome.
