Open Day at the Palau de la Música Catalana
Time Out says
Open Day at the Palau de Música Catalana has become something of a tradition, and we're all for it! This year's big event takes place on Sunday, November 24, from 10am to 3pm, to celebrate Santa Cecilia, the patron saint of music. Throughout the morning you can visit at your leisure the different areas of the World Heritage modernista building, including the Concert Hall (stalls and second floor); the Lluís Millet Hall and its garden of columns, each one different and crowned with stone capitals with floral motifs; and the Petit Palau, the auditorium that's 11 metres below the square and where they'll be screening a film about Clavé XXI, the Palau's social project that promotes the social inclusion of children and youth via choral singing. The Orfeó Català also offers guided tours of their facilities, on the fifth floor of the Palau, where they store documents dating to the 12th century.
Outside, in the Plaça del Palau, you'll also find things to do, with a piano set up for anyone who wants to play, thanks to the Maria Canals competition. Plus, as in previous editions of the Open Day, the Palau is offering choral workshops to the general public, where participants rehearse various pieces and then perform in the Concert Hall before an audience!
Get your tickets at the Palau de la Música website or in person at the box office for €1, which goes to Clavé XXI.
