Thanks to the collaboration of the Palau de Congressos de Palma, the Balearic Symphony Orchestra offered a solidarity concert on October 18. Several hundreds of families had the opportunity to enjoy the event, and the funds raised had been sent to the Association of Parents of Children with Cancer of the Balearic Islands (ASPANOB).
The Balearic Symphony Orchestra, which this year celebrates its 30th anniversary, performed several classics of films and series as popular as Beauty and the Beast, Star Wars or Game of Thrones, aiming to awake music interest among children and young people.
The Palau de Congressos has been promoting the celebration of a quality leisure and cultural offer in its facilities. In addition, some of these events are linked to social purposes, especially with an impact on the children's collective.
Thanks to the “reverse box office” system, each attendee was able to decide individually how much money to pay for their ticket after the show, adapting the cultural offer to all budgets. Being a solidarity event, it is also an incentive to make a donation.
Specifically, this event aimed to contribute to the work of ASPANOB, whose mission is to work to improve the quality of life of all children from 0 to 18 years suffering from cancer and their families.
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.
