The Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies to once again bring classical Catalan music to Musicora Paris

A total of six Catalan enterprises (among them, music groups, festivals and institutions) dealing in classical music will participate from 1 to 3 June in Musicora Paris, the most important classical music event in France.

Catalonia will provide, for the second year straight, a Ministry of Culture stand, which is organised by the Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies under its internationalisation brand, Catalan Arts – Music. Located at the hub of the event’s professional activity, the stand will offer up a comprehensive image of classical music in Catalonia and act as a meeting place for professionals during the event. Information guides, entitled Catalan Arts at Musicora, will also be passed out.

Representatives from the ICEC will be there to give their support to Catalan enterprises that wish to meet their international peers, market their productions to the French market or grow their network of international contacts.

The key dates for Catalan enterprises will be during the New Deal professional event, taking place on Friday 1 and Saturday 2 June. On these days participants will be able to strengthen their relationship with international programmers and music groups. Catalan professionals will also have the opportunity to participate in the speed meeting sessions as well as in all of the scheduled meet-ups and professional activities.

The Catalan enterprises participating in Musicora 2018 are: Auditori Pau Casals, aupaQUARTET, The Torroella de Montgrí Music Festival, The Vallès Symphony Orchestra, The Cadaqués Orchestra and Catalan Institute for Cultural Companies – Catalan Arts

Also, this year the Catalan music group aupaQUARTET has been chosen to perform their spectacle "Step UP" during a showcase being held at the Boris Vian Auditorium at the Grande Halle de la Villette on Friday 1 June at 3:15 pm.

Musicora is considered a major event in the sector, featuring some thirty concerts, 200 exhibitors, 30 lectures and 80 musical workshops over three days. The guitar is this year's instrument of honour, which means the event will include lectures and performances especially dedicated to it.
