Music, theater, exhibitions, book and film presentations, in September Culture program
Music, amateur theater, exhibitions, book presentations and film screenings make up the proposal of the Department of Culture, directed by Jaime Jesús Pérez, for this month of September. A program “in which we have included very diverse activities and for different types of public and that we premiered this weekend with the first of the sessions of the IX International Organ Festival, in the church of Sant Jaume and Santa Ana at 9:00 p.m. hours with a recital by Javier Artigas, José Antonio Gonzaga and Pedro Cussac ”.
Apart from the IX International Organ Festival, which will have its second session in October, the musical program for September has three other appointments. The first of them will be on September 12, Sunday, with a concert by the Jazz Big Band of the l’Illa Musical Society in the Julio Iglesias auditorium; which will be followed, on the 18th, by a performance of the Chamber Orchestra of the Musical Union in the Assembly Hall of the Town Hall. The third appointment, scheduled for Saturday, September 25 at the Julio Iglesias auditorium, will be the XX Festera Villa de Benidorm Music Composition Contest, which in this edition will honor Andrés Teuler.
The theater, in amateur mode, will come from the work of Alpi Teatre with ‘La Tempestad’ by William Shakespeare, which will be performed on Saturday, September 11 at 8:30 p.m. in the Óscar Esplá amphitheater for the benefit of AFEM and Asmibe. On Thursday 30th it will be the turn of Tossal Teatre, with an adaptation of ‘Halfway’ by Peter Ustinov. The proceeds, in this case, will be for the benefit of Anemone.
Literature will also have its place in the cultural program for September, with the presentation of the books ‘Diània, paisatjes costaners’ by Justo Sellés, on September 17 at the El Torrejó Municipal Center; and ‘That sea that unites us’, by José Rafael Moreno, in the Assembly Hall of the City Council on the 23rd.
L’Espai d’Art del Ayuntamiento, for its part, will host Beatriz Aramburu’s exhibition ‘Life is beautiful, sometimes’, which will run from September 22 to October 11.
The latest proposal from Culture, in collaboration with the Department of Social Welfare and AFA Marina Baixa, will be the screening with subsequent debate of the film ‘El padre’, scheduled for Monday, September 20.
