Orquestra Juvenil Geração (Generation Youth Orchestra) is back at the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation's Grand Auditorium.

The concert marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Portuguese composer Joly Braga Santos, with his emblematic Concert for String Orchestra, together with opera overtures and repertoire with a Latin American influence. Of particular note is Anne Victorino d’Almeida’s piece, composed under B-Me (Blending melodies: bridging cultural identities), a European co-creation and cultural exchange project that brings together the Portugal, Cyprus and Greece Youth Symphony Orchestra systems.

The concert will be conducted by Juan Carlos Maggiorani and Santiago Ossa Alzate.

Proceeds from ticket sales will go to Orquestra Geração.
