Teachers and students will offer ten concerts and a series of street performances.

As a complement to classroom teaching, teachers and students of the 2001 International Music School Summer Courses will offer ten free concerts at the Príncipe Felipe Auditorium and the Cajastur Cultural Centre in Oviedo.

There will also be a series of street performances, between 25th and 28th July, which will include two daily sessions in Oviedo’s emblematic streets and plazas.

The Prince of Asturias Foundation’s 2011 International Music School Summer Courses started last Tuesday. The courses, which will continue until 30th July, have 236 students from Argentina, Colombia, France, Italy, Holland, Hong Kong, Mexico, Portugal, the UK, Russia, Ukraine, Venezuela and Spain,

making this edition one of the most numerous courses to be held in our country.

The inaugural event counted on the participation of the musician and producer Carlos Jean, who gave the opening talk. In previous years, the Courses have been opened by Fernando Argenta, host of the music programmes “Clásicos Populares” and “El Conciertazo”, the singers Luz Casal and Victor Manuel and the Galician musician Carlos Nuñez.

Thirty-one professors of twelve different nationalities will be giving classes covering the standard range of symphonic orchestral instruments, as well as ensemble classes for chamber music, string quartets, wind ensembles, folk music ensembles, youth orchestra and junior orchestra. This year the school has bolstered its Musical Health Department with the subject “Baroque Dance (the Dance of Breath) and its Approach from the Pilates Technique” as well as including the workshop “Healthy Food and Eating Habits”, in collaboration with the Alimerka Foundation.

Admission to the concerts will be free until all seats are taken.
