The church of Sant Bertomeu de Xàbia will host a unique musical proposal this Sunday evening when Il Dolce Incontro will be performing, a group formed by great musicians specialized in historical music and in the interpretation with instruments of 17th and 18th centuries.
Among its members are mezzo-soprano Francesca Sales as well as soprano Rafa Quirant as well as violinist Victor Yusà and Anna Pitarch on cello. In their performance in Xàbia, scheduled for 5 pm, they will offer the programme “Sacred Sounds” with works by Antonio Vivaldi, Antonio Caldara and Alessandro Scarlatti. The ticket will cost 5 euros and can be purchased at the entrance to the concert.
This recital will close a weekend full of music. On Saturday it will be the Centro Artístico Musical de Xàbia that will offer a charity concert by its Youth Band and Orchestra. Kicking off at 9 pm in the church of Sant Bertomeu, admission has been set at 2 euros and the proceeds will go entirely to those affected by the war in Ukraine.
Other appointments on this week’s cultural agenda are the opening of several photo exhibitions within the Ojos Rojos festival (Friday at CA Lambert City Hall, Soler Blasco Museum and Casa del Cable) and the Bee Children’s Theatre scheduled for Saturday afternoon at the Casa de Cultura (at 5.30 pm with admission at 3 euros).
