OFUA's charity concert to be held on 19 December

On 19 December, at 8 p.m. in the Alicante Provincial Government Auditorium (ADDA), the University of Alicante’s Philharmonic Orchestra (OFUA) will hold the 4th edition of the Rotary-UA Christmas Concert to raise funds for Cáritas charity organisation. The event coincides with the 10th anniversary of the Orchestra.

OFUA’s tenured and artistic director, Mihnea Ignat, has designed a programme that is “very exigent for the orchestra, but at she same time pleasant for the audience” and includes works from different artists, such as Tchaikovsky (The Nutcracker and Swan Lake), Saint-Saëns, Khachaturian and Manuel de Falla (The Three-Cornered Hat). We can also find compositions by Shostakovich, to celebrate the 10th anniversary since the OFUA was created, and by Sibelius, to mark 150 years from the composer’s birth.

Tickets are €15 and they can be purchased online at from 19 November onwards, in person in any of the two Rotary Clubs, and in the Auditorium an hour before the performance begins. Donation tickets are available for those unable to attend the concert yet wishing to make a contribution.
