Jazz and classical music in the parks of Barcelona
Like each year, a new edition of Música als Parcs (Music in the parks) arrives with a roster of free outdoor concerts that take place throughout summar in Barcelona. This even has been going strong for 15 years and includes music of the best quality. Enjoy sitting at night in a nice environment with great music, friends and family. A perfect plan to enjoy an outdoor summer evening while savouring the mix of nature, jazz and classical music.
For 2017, the event consists of 50 free concerts with classical music, jazz, blues and choirs. There's also the municipal band of Barcelona and various music schools participating. Invited orchestras include the likes of Thames Youth Orchestra and The Durham University Classical Ensemble. All the musicians of the different events are between 16 and 35 years old.
We recommend that you follow the Facebook of the organisation, since the concerts can change at the last moment, in case of rain or if the climatic conditions are unfavourable.
The closing concert will take place on Thursday, 31 August at 9PM in Clot Park with Monica Green, but until then there are plenty of concerts. We invite you to take a look at the full programme here (Catalan).
Green areas in Barcelona
'Music als Parcs' not only offers a musical event in Barcelona, but it also supports neighbourhood awareness to take care of these peaceful areas in the city. There will also be guided tours in some parks in order to learn more about the history and biodiversity of these places. In a densely populated city like Barcelona, green areas are very important. They supply us with fresh air and improve our quality of life. That's why these parks offering alternatives for leisure is one of the best ways to take advantage of these spaces.
Guided tours are limited to 35 people, so we recommend you book through this link (Catalan). Try to be punctual and arrive 10 minutes before the start of the tour to not miss anything.
