On the 30th of September, a grand celebration will take place at the Tenerife Auditorium in honor of its 20th anniversary. The Tenerife Island Council has meticulously arranged a concert that pays homage to the original inaugural performance held in 2003.
Guiding the musical journey of the evening will be none other than Víctor Pablo Pérez, joined by an exceptional ensemble of musicians and vocalists:
- The Symphony Orchestra of Tenerife (Sinfónica de Tenerife).
- The combined choirs of the Comunidad de Madrid and the Ópera de Tenerife.
- A quartet of renowned soloists: Krassimira Stoyanova, a Bulgarian soprano; Airam Hernández, a Tenerife tenor; Oleysa Petrova, a Russian mezzo-soprano; and Alessio Cacciamani, an Italian bass.
The concert is scheduled to commence at 7:30 p.m. within the Symphony Hall of the Auditorium. The program will feature select compositions from the inaugural concert in 2003. Among these, “Royal Fanfare,” a commissioned piece by the late Polish composer Krzysztof Penderecki, will be performed as a tribute. The evening’s pinnacle will be the rendition of Giuseppe Verdi’s Requiem Mass from 1874.
For those eager to attend this special event, tickets are available at a special price of 10 euros. They can be obtained through the Tenerife Auditorium’s official website, at the box office during regular hours (Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), and by calling 902 317 327.

The Tenerife Auditorium, a significant cultural hub managed by the Island Council, originally opened its doors in September 2003. Since then, it has served as a platform for showcasing high-quality artistic performances. Additionally, it has hosted film and advertising shoots, various events, and conferences. The architectural masterpiece, designed by Valencian architect Santiago Calatrava, covers an impressive area of 23,000 square meters. The venue boasts multiple spaces, including the symphony hall and chamber hall, and sets high standards in terms of artistic and technological innovation.
