Artistic Project

Excellence, participation, social commitment and Catalan identity are the values which lie behind the strategic positioning of the Fundació Orfeó Català-Palau de la Música Catalana, the same values which in 1905 led the Orfeó Català to build the Palau de la Música and secure the position of the 20th-century choral scene.

The Fundació Orfeó Català-Palau de la Música Catalana concert season blazes a new trail in programme terms, representing a genuinely distinctive artistic discourse of its own to make the Orfeó Català, the choirs of its Escola Coral and the Cor de Cambra of the Palau, together with the Palau de la Música itself, ambassadors for artistic excellence through their musical activities.

A programme based on five artistic goals: excellence , in particular through Palau 100, within which every concert aims to be a unique, extraordinary event: the central role of the choirs , with the Orfeó Català and the Cor de Cambra renewed; commitment to contemporary music ; attention to Catalan performers; and a desire to attract new audiences to the Palau.

The Palau's artistic project, therefore, aims for music to express the raison d'être of its wonderful Art Nouveau temple for ever, and invites audiences to experience musical emotions which will enhance their life in these difficult times. This is the mission which underlies the Fundació OC-PMC's artistic project.
