The second Promenade Concert of this season «is exclusively dedicated to the musical expression of Portugal and Spain», according to the Lagoa Chamber.

«From Portugal we have the tranquility of the Alentejo plain, the countryside of the Ribatejo lezíria and songs from our childhood, written by the English composer Gilbert Vinter. From Spain we have the warm nights of XNUMXth century Seville and the Festa Brava, by Carmen and Escamillo, El Matador, with the magnificent music of French composer George Bizet», describes the municipality.

The Promenade Concerts feature guest conductor Élio Leal and the baritone Rui Baeta and are «a true music festival for the whole family».
