Following the great success of the first edition, on 14, 15 and 16 June, Sing with the ‎OBC is back! Don´t miss out on the unique opportunity of singing at L’Auditori accompanied ‎by the Barcelona Symphony Orchestra.



The preparation will start in March and will last three ‎months, during which 13 rehearsals will be held at L'Auditori, ‎right up until the concert week when the work of the choir and the OBC musicians will come ‎together in two joint rehearsals and culminate in three final ‎performancesin Hall 1 Pau Casals. The choir conductor Elisenda ‎Carrasco and the stage director David Pintó will work with the ‎singers on both the musical and scenic aspects to lend the concert a dramatic dimension. The ‎musical director will be Miquel Ortega.‎

Rehearsals consisting of two-and-a-half hour-long sessions will be held on an almost weekly ‎basis at L'Auditori. Participants in the concerts may only miss 3 of the 13 planned ‎rehearsals (but not during the concert week, when ‎‎attendance at rehearsals is compulsory: Tuesday 11, Wednesday 12 and ‎Thursday 13 June).‎

The participants selected to be part of the choir must pay € 35, which ‎includes the contribution for participating in the project(L'Auditori ‎provides the concert scores, access to its facilities, the experience with the whole OBC team ‎and musicians) and one ticket for the concert that ‎theOrchestra will deliver on Saturday, 23 March, (Ravel´s Bolero, in the Emergents ‎Music Festival) which includes a post-concert gathering. ‎

Those people who are not selected to be part of the choir will still have the chance to ‎participate in this project, singing some pieces from the audience on Sunday, 16 June, ‎accompanying the choir and the orchestra.‎
