2024 Symphony Tour Update: Performance Venue

Breaking news! We’re beyond excited to announce that Symphony will have the incredible opportunity to perform at the historic Palau de la Música Catalana in Barcelona as part of next June’s tour!  

Megen Balda and Mark Russell Smith stand outside in front of the Palau de la Musica Catalan.

Maestro Smith shared “Without question, one of the great highlights of the tour will be our final concert in one of Europe’s great music venues — the Palau de la Música Catalana — or the Palau. Barcelona is a magical place that was home to architectural and artistic giants like Gaudí and Picasso, and the colors and designs in the venue reflect that unique artistic legacy. The Palau has hosted the greatest soloists and orchestras throughout its illustrious history, and now Symphony will become part of that great story and share with an always-enthusiastic Catalonian audience. This is a huge opportunity, and one that students will never forget!”  

Interior of Palau: Ornate, gold walls, stain glass windows, and a large stage.

We can’t wait! Thank you to GrandTours and Oros Travel & Culture.
