The Balearic Symphony Orchestra (OSIB) and the Palau de Congressos de Palma have collaborated once again - as they have done in the past - in a solidarity project aimed at the most vulnerable children. On this occasion, the "Petita Simfònica" - the project for music students promoted by the OSIB - together with the professionals of the Orchestra, offered a charity concert on June 25 in the main auditorium of the Palau de Congressos, which was attended by more than 600 people.
Funds raised through tickets sales have been allocated to the NGO "Proyecto Juntos", dedicated to children, to promote the renewal of the Pediatric area of Son Espases Hospital in Palma de Mallorca.
Every year, more than 28,000 children and adolescents are seen in the hospital. The renewal of this area is intended to provide a more pleasant place for children, offering them an enjoyable environment.
For this occasion, the young clarinetist, Julia Valera, was the soloist who played the first work of the evening, the Mozart’s clarinet concerto in A major. The program was completed with works by Edvard Grieg and the famous Bolero de Ravel, performed by the Symphony Orchestra accompanied by the 52 children who participated this year in the project "Petita Simfònica".
TaPalma is the tapas & cocktails route in Palma, and this year it will be held from November 25 to 29. In addition, on November 23, two days before the gastronomic route, TaPalma will celebrate the tapas contest at the Palau de Congressos de Palma, for the third year.
Bureau Veritas, a market leader in inspection, certification and testing, has completed the certification of the Meliá Hotels International “Stay Safe with Meliá” programme of preventative measures to combat COVID-19 and has also confirmed a level of compliance of 100% in company hotels.
The spread of the Covid-19 pandemic and the need to reduce the pressure on the public health system in the Balearic Islands led to the Meliá Palma Bay Hotel and Palma Convention Centre being converted into hospitals in late March under the management of the Son Llàtzer University Hospital.
