The XXI Festive Music Composition Contest 'Villa de Benidorm' already has a winning Christian march with the motto 'Serra Gelada'
'Serra Gelada' is the motto of the winning Christian march of the XXI 'Villa de Benidorm' Festive Composition Contest. This has been decided by the technical jury of the contest, chaired by the Councilor for Culture, Jaime Jesús Pérez, and of which local directors and composers Josep Cano and Antonio Espinosa have been part; the composer and teacher Pedro Salinas; and the local musician Javier Cidrón on behalf of the Association of Moors and Christians.
The councillor of Culture explained that "as in the last edition, the name of the author and the definitive title of the work will be known on September 24, in the extraordinary concert of festive music that will be performed by the Unió Musical de Benidorm and in which this Christian march will premiere. A concert that on this occasion will be held in the Óscar Esplá auditorium in the Parque de l’Aigüera at 9:00 p.m.
Pérez has detailed that "the pieces that have been presented to this edition of the Contest, convened in the Christian march modality, have been evaluated by the technical jury, once again made up of relevant professionals, with recognized trajectory and who, in addition, is linked to the composition of festive music, either for their role as creators, directors or performers”.
The councillor highlighted that "our 'Villa de Benidorm' Festive Music Composition Contest has now 21 editions, being one of the longest-running in the province of Alicante and the Valencian Community". Throughout its years of existence, "this contest has produced marches and 'pasodobles' that are already part of the history of festive music and that have contributed to giving more prestige, if possible, to this 'Villa de Benidorm' contest".
During the concert on the 24th, the winning piece will receive the prize of this contest: 2,000 euros and a trophy.
