The pianist Gabriela Montero performed with the Castellón Symphony Orchestra under Henry Bouché with the Malena bench
On June 3, Kaunus once again experienced an extraordinary moment, this time on stage. During the concert held at the Castelló Auditorium and Conference Center, the great pianist Gabriela Montero masterfully performed the Piano Concerto No. 5 “Emperor” accompanied by the Malena bench.
Without a doubt, it was a beautiful and harmonious image on stage. Art, sophistication, and talent united to provide a great show to the public and more after this challenging year due to the pandemic. In addition, Zayda Jiménez, founder of Kaunus, had the opportunity to meet Gabriela and hand over the Malena stool in person for such an important occasion.
