Words of Marta Madrenas about Emociona't amb la SCCC · Himnes del cor



The concerts of the Simfònica de Cobla i Corda de Catalunya (Cobla and String Symphony Orchestra of Catalonia) are one of the most outstanding musical events that take place in Girona. Year after year, their events never fail to excite, allowing us once again to enjoy the work of many of our greatest artists. The work of the Metalquimia Foundation in helping to stage these shows generates an immensely valuable social return, deftly combining disciplines and bringing many renowned musicians and singers on stage.

Girona is now at a point in its history where numerous cultural, gastronomic and sporting events are coinciding, making it one of the most exciting and dynamic cities in Spain and indeed in southern Europe. All of this is thanks to the tireless efforts of an outstanding human team, to the collaboration between the public and private sectors, and to the strong ties that have been built within a population rightfully proud of its identity. The SCCC is part of this elite crowd, as demonstrated not only by the public’s response, but also by the numerous awards and accolades that its recordings have earned over the years.

Its 2002 musical proposition is a particularly fine one, in the sense that it will surely fill us with positivity and enthusiasm with this series of universally-loved hymns that we will experience for the first time in the very particular format of the cobla i corda ensemble typical of Catalonia. I would like to thank the Foundation and Josep Lagares for their unquenchable desire to continue innovating, and to continue working day by day for the good of the city and the country.

Thank you, and enjoy the show!


Marta Madrenas

Mayor of Girona
