Hear traditional music from Catalonia on March 21 at the Palau de la Música Catalana, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The musical group Cobla Sant Jordi-Ciutat de Barcelona performs the intricate music that accompanies the Catalan dance known as 'sardana' — providing an intimate experience of Catalan culture in the heart of Catalonia.
On March 21, make your own way to the Palau de la Música Catalana and use your provided admission ticket to enter the concert by Cobla Sant Jordi-Ciutat de Barcelona.
The twelve-piece band (cobla) specializes in music for the sardana, a Catalan dance that dates back to 16th century. Enjoy this traditional concert in one of the city's most renowned concert venues, the Palau de la Música Catalana. The architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner built the hall in 1908 for the Orfeó Català choral society.
Note the many elegant decorative elements in the foyer and auditorium. Busts of Anselm Clavé and Beethoven flank the stage, with natural motifs of flowers and fruit winding around the interior. A large skylight allows natural light into the auditorium from above, while the organ features prominently on the stage.
