The 2023 Classical Laguna Experience festival is in full swing, reaching a pivotal moment with six upcoming concerts across the islands of Lanzarote, La Palma, and La Gomera, all offered to the public for free until seats are filled.
La Gomera is set to bask in a cultural spotlight, launching four performances at Restaurante Laguna Grande Vallehermoso. The musical journey begins with violinist Ana Alonso on Wednesday, followed by lute virtuoso Liana Llauger the next day.
Friday will showcase Anaga Dúo’s blend of timple and guitar at noon, and in the evening, guitarist Alexander Álvarez takes the stage at the Casa de la Cultura Pedro García Cabrera.
Festival director César Martín is exuberant about the festival’s trajectory, praising its success at interweaving local talent and refreshing the image of classical music to be more accessible across the laguna islands. This year’s theme focuses on invigorating Canary Islands culture and fostering a music-inspired community.
La Palma is also hosting its own musical delights with performances by Natanael Ramos and Virxilio Da Silva. Meanwhile, Lanzarote is preparing for the Aguere Ensemble to grace Arrecife on Friday evening.
Supported by the Canary Islands Government, Promotur, ICDC, and local town councils, plus sponsors like Rims Mobility and Fred Olsen, the festival is a beacon of cultural enrichment. Attendees are encouraged to embrace eco-friendly travel to the events, thereby aligning with the festival’s commitment to sustainability and enhancing the overall cultural experience.
