  • At a concert, to start at 7 pm, the OSB will play works by Rossini, Mozart and Mendelssohn as part of its ‘Beauty and happiness’ programme
  • Bankia sponsors this orchestra, which is conducted by José Sanchía, to provide young musicians with an opportunity to work in their chosen profession

The Bankia Symphony Orchestra (OSB) will present its ‘Beauty and happiness’ programme on Sunday, 1 July at 7 pm at the Miguel Delibes Auditorium in Valladolid.

The Bankia Symphony Orchestra, made up of young professional musicians and conducted by José Sanchís, will give a concert featuring pieces by some of the most important composers in the history of classical music, such as Gioachino Rossini, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Felix Mendelssohn.

Soprano Blanca Valido will also perform at the concert, which will start with the 2nd Overture from the Barber of Seville by G. Rossini. This will be followed by works by Mozart, such as the ‘Come Scoglio’ overtures, from Act I of Cosi fan tutte, K. 588 and ‘Porgi amor qualche ristoro’, from Act II of Le Nozze di Figaro, k. 492, among others. The concert will end with a performance of the Symphony No. 4, commonly known as the Italian, by Felix Mendelssohn.

‘It is an honour for the OSB to perform in Valladolid and to bring this music to the people of this city. We are enormously delighted to share our project with them, and we hope that they will enjoy the repertoire that the young musicians and I have prepared with so much care”, said José Sanchís, artistic and musical director of the OSB.

The OSB, which is made up of 52 musicians aged from 22 to 31, was created to encourage talented young musicians, and to provide ongoing training and jobs for elite instrumentalists who have finished their official training.

As part of its efforts to support young people and create jobs, Bankia created its orchestra in 2015, and it has been striving to discover music talent, recognise hard work and effort, continuous training and insertion in the job market ever since.

OSB also promotes and supports its members through professional activity and collaboration with renowned national and international professionals. While they are with the orchestra, members are paid for their services.

OSB musicians specialised in the clarinet, bass, bassoon, flute, oboe, trombone, horn, trumpet, violin, viola and cello will complete three days of concerts in Avila, Salamanca and Valladolid today.
