Thirteen top-level symphonic groups from 8 European countries will visit Madrid between October and May.
At Kaunus, we have not wanted to miss the presentation of the 52nd season of IBERMÚSICA. After a tough year of delays, stoppages, and cancellations due to the global Covid-19 pandemic, the music, and the show must continue. And what better way than with an exciting season, full of talent and great enthusiasm to recover the sector and maintain its quality and prestige.
To achieve this goal, IBERMÚSICA has made a big bet. A total of 13 international symphonic groups and 20 soloists will participate in the festival, which will occur in Madrid between October this year and May 2022.
