Summer Concert: "From Lyrical to Symphonic" by the Orquestra do Algarve

On June 8, at 18h30, the Grand Auditorium Caixa Geral de Depósitos, Gambelas Campus, hosts the UAlg Summer Concert "From Lyrical to Symphonic", by the Orchestra of Algarve, which will also feature the participation of the Community Choir.

Directed by the conductor José Eduardo Gomes, this concert, which will include operas by four composers, proposes the discovery of the lyrical vein of this quartet of geniuses, but in a symphonic context, with a curious overture for puppet theatre by Smetana, followed by two symphonies full of brilliance by authors who have written their name in the pantheon of opera. The highlight will be Fauré's immortal Pavane, with the participation of the Community Choir.

Entrance is free, subject to the capacity of the hall.
