Last night José Sanchís led the Orquesta Sinfónica CaixaBank – aided superbly by the voice of soprano Susana Cordón – in a tribute to victims of the COVID-19 pandemic – and the collectives hardest hit by this ongoing tragedy.

The programme was developed with particular focus on the themes of hope, courage and strength; José ensured the musicians delivered a powerful performance – and the audience replied with prolonged ovations.

It was an emotional night without doubt. But also a clear display of the power of music in uniting people in challenging circumstances – and generating positivity.

Thank you Susana Cordón. Thank you Orquesta Sinfónica CaixaBank. Thank you José Sanchís.

THANK YOU to all of those people in the front line of the fight against COVID-19.
