Escolania de Montserrat in Washington DC *

Sunday, March 16, 2014 at 3:00 PM
Music Center at Strathmore (directions)

The Escolania de Montserrat –Catalonia’s premiere boys’ choir and one of the oldest music schools in Europe– performs in the United States for the first time in the history of their 800-year-old musical tradition. Hailing from Benedictine Abbey and Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montserrat near Barcelona, these enchanting choristers present a concert of music from Montserrat from the Middle Ages to the present. Under the direction of Bernat Vivancos, the Escolania uses music to cross boundaries and bring “peace and joy to anyone who hears them” (Radio La Voz de Rusia).

This concert will run approximately 110 minutes with intermission.

Merry Christmas i Bon Nadal des del Casal Català de Washington, DC!!!

2013-12-Pastorets-136On Saturday, December 7th, the Casal Català de Washington DC celebrated Christmas with the two most cherished Catalan traditions: Els Pastorets and the Caga Tió.

By magic powers, Lluquet and Rovelló found themselves in a forest near Bethlem on their way to admire Jesus, the new-born. Children and parents enjoyed their adventures and had a beautiful Catalan evening. The Caga Tió was also so generous with everyone after being hit.

We ended up signing some Catalan carols and toasting with cava remembering all the activities that we shared this year 2013 that is about to end.
