Promoconcert is without a doubt one of the most active concert promoters in Barcelona at this time of year, with performances that include classical music, gospel, jazz, Spanish guitar, and soul. The first Promoconcert dates are this month, with the Gran noche de la ópera (Friday the 7th), the Four Seasons (Saturday the 8th), and the Concierto de Aranjuez (Saturday the 15th), all taking place at the Palau de la Musica. This year gospel gets its turn with a triple entry from the Alabama Gospel Choir (Palau de la Musica, the 15th and the 25th) and L’Auditori (the 23rd). Then there’s the inevitable holiday encounter with the waltzes of Strauss under the name of Gran Concierto de Año Nuevo, with the Strauss Festival Orchestra at the Gran Teatre del Liceu (the 26th). Jazz will also make an appearance with The Cotton Club Revue Jazz Band (the 22nd. L’Auditori). Finally, two shows will pay tribute to two soul stars no longer with us: Remembering Whitney Houston (Teatre Coliseum, the 19th) and Barry White’s Tribute (L’Auditori, Tuesday, January 1st).
Various stages around the city.
