Ourencanto is an initiative by Cristina Rodríguez and Carlos Núñez aimed at bringing the choral world to all children aged 8 to 18 in the city and province of Ourense. Since its first edition in February 2017, it has exceeded all expectations in terms of participation, impact, and results, becoming a national and international benchmark.

The success of Ourencanto led to the creation of other related events, such as BurgosEncanto, twinning projects, and collaborations with other Autonomous Communities, as well as national projects in Latin American countries, like the project by the Batuta Foundation of Colombia, which helps disadvantaged children through music, with a format identical to Ourencanto.

The forecast for this year is to reach 2000 young people and a very broad audience, indicating the constant growth and consolidation of this project. The demand from schools and educational centers throughout Galicia and even from other regions of Spain was extraordinary, reflecting the great interest generated by the project.

For the second consecutive year, two educational sessions of Ourencanto will be held on Monday, April 8th, aimed at a total of 1,200 schoolchildren. It will be a very educational and participative concert for all attendees.

The artistic director of Ourencanto, Josu Elberdin, brought the project to the highest level, and it is a real privilege to have his experience and talent to lead this special event. Furthermore, there has also been a considerable increase in interest from music teachers in educational centers in Ourense.

All this is reflected in the closing concert, which achieves a high professional level thanks to the effort and dedication of all those involved. Participants have the opportunity to be part of an event of the highest quality, sharing the stage with top-level musicians, which means a unique and enriching experience for all of them.

With this level of growth, it is very likely that in the future it will be necessary to expand the capacity of Ourencanto to meet the demand of both participants and the public. In any case, there is no doubt that Ourencanto is today one of the largest reference events at a national and international level in its category.

Dates and Location:

The event will take place from April 5th at the Professional Conservatory of Music of Ourense and on April 6th and 7th at the Municipal Auditorium of Music of Ourense. The closing concert will be on April 7th, at 7:00 p.m., at the Municipal Auditorium of Ourense.
