Yesterday, the Sagrada Família hosted its traditional Easter concert, which more than 1.500 people attended. This year, it featured the Orquestra Simfònica Camera Musicae, established in 2006, performing Requiem and motets by Maurice Duruflé. They were conducted by Pere Lluís Biosca and accompanied by Cor Francesc Valls and organ player Juan de la Rubia.
The audience at the concert included the winners of the 300 tickets for two the Basilica gave out in a draw open to the general public on social media.
The concert is part of a special programme of events and religious celebrations for Easter, which will continue on Sunday at noon with Palm Sunday mass, which can be followed live here. To attend, you must have an invitation, which can be picked up at the Sagrada Família Parish (Carrer de Sardenya 218, crypt entrance) from 8 to 12 April, 9 am to 1:30 pm and 5 to 8 pm. The invitations will be given out on a first-come, first-served basis.
