The Ensems Festival postponed to September

The 42nd edition of the Ensems Festival, initially scheduled between April 17 and May 17, is postponed to September
- It will try to keep the same schedule of concerts, pedagogical projects, talks and master classes
- The Deputy Direction of Valencian Popular Music and Culture of the IVC and the festival team are working to reschedule a total of 27 concerts

The Institut Valencià de Cultura (IVC), through its Deputy Direction for Music and Popular Valencian Culture, has decided to postpone to September the celebration of the 42nd edition of the Ensems Festival, scheduled to be held initially between the 17th April and May 17 in different venues of the city of València and, for the first time, with proposals in Castelló and Alicante.

The cause of the postponement is the well-known health crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemic and the consequent declaration of the state of alarm decreed by the central government.

The Deputy Direction and the festival team work closely with the participating institutions to try to transfer the same programming, already agreed with the groups, in September with the aim of minimizing the impact on the performers, creators and exhibition spaces.

The festival will maintain its theme 'Hibridacions', under which it will try to bring tradition closer to current creation, to join classical formations with less traditional ones and mix experience and experimentation to give rise to new sounds.

One of the keys to this edition of the Ensems Festival is territorialization, which had been achieved by the initiative of different institutions and which allowed the festival to take place in this edition also in Alicante and Castelló. For the first time, the three symphonic bands from the Valencian provinces were going to participate, and the Orquestra de València and the Orquestra ADDA Simfònica, with different premieres and very interesting works for these formations. The Deputy Direction will try to keep this transversal and opened proposal.

Inter-institutional collaboration will be decisive in rescheduling a festival that was originally going to be held at the Teatre Principal de València, at the Teatre Rialto, in the García Navarro hall of the Palau de la Música de València, in the Palau de les Arts, in the Matilde Salvador de La Nau Cultural Center of the Universitat de València, at the IVAM, in the Auditori del Conservatori Superior de Música de València, in the ADDA of the Alicante Provincial Council and in the Auditori i Palau de Congressos de Castelló.
