Mary Poppins flies through La Orotava
The Tenerife Youth Philharmonic Orchestra ‘Miguel Jaubert” (OFJT-MJ) arrives, for the first time, in La Orotava to offer an exceptional concert that will transport the public through time and music.
The Teobaldo Power Auditorium hosts this musical event on Saturday, January 25th, at 7pm. The orchestra will perform ‘The Prodigious Musical Journey’, inspired by the well-known figure of Mary Poppins. The poster announc-ing the concert reflects the most emblematic buildings of the city, with Mary Poppins flying through the sky of the Villa.
In this work, the protagonist will visit several countries and live a series of situations so that the value of things, of emotions, of life is discovered. Suffragists, scientific pio-neers, precursors of aviation, film and photography, ex-plorers and travellers will show this adventurous nanny, and her companions, in a time of great technological ad-vances.
The show will be accom-panied by an audiovisual montage in which the play and music are implemented with images that illustrate the concert.
The OMJT-MJ was founded by Miguel Jaubert Gómez in September 2012 and at the beginning of 2014 it was assumed by the Canarian Association for the Dissemination of Music. This association, founded in 2004, has as its main objective the dissemination of music in the Islands. It develops its objectives and social purposes through two of its own projects to which it allocates practically all of its resources: the Tenerife Youth Philharmonic Orchestra “Miguel Jaubert” and the Tenerife Philharmonic Orchestra.
The Orchestra is com-posed of 90 musicians between 10 and 18 years, which makes it a unique and unprecedented project throughout the national territory. All its components are musically schooled, either studying at the Conservatory of Music, or at the Municipal Music Schools of the different municipalities of the island of Tenerife. They have also incorporated a group of 15 actors, between 9 and 15 years old, who perform with the orchestra in the didactic and family concerts. There is usually also a singer who normally belongs to the group of musicians or actors.
Tickets for this extraordinary show are totally free, and can be obtained at the City Hall in the mayor’s office or in the area of culture.
