CLASSICAL MUSIC FESTIVAL, PORT OF SOLLER
In recent years much has been done by the authorities to improve the infrastructure, the marine facilities etc., and the opening of the Museum of the Sea in Santa Catalina, all assisted by the Plan for Touristic Excellence.
The transformation of our Port of Soller into a quality zone has had a positive influence in stimulating cultural activities. The ancient monastery Santa Catalina has become the Museum of the Sea and greatly to the benefit of classical music enthusiasts we now have the oratorio as a concert hall.
The Sóller Hoteliers Association decided, in 2005, to go further and to contribute to this raising of the quality of the area, proposed organizing a Festival of Classical music to bring a touch of class and distinction to the Port of Sóller.
The Festival is customarily held in October and artists of international repute take part in the concerts and give us unforgettable hours: Alexander Malter, Rainer Sonne, Dietmar Schwalke, Christian Stadelmann, Evelina Dobraceva, Dresdner Stringtrio, Chieko Yokoyama, Nikolay Borchev, etc.
