21/22 Season: Optimism, discovery, and inspiring music

The recovery of artists and musical works that had been scheduled a year ago, the discovery of a lot of inspiring music, and the reaffirmation of our important role in Basque society are the main features of this new concert Season.  

To help with this goal, we will see established figures such as Pinchas Steinberg, Pinchas Zukerman, Pietari Inkinen, Mei-Ann Chen, Varvara, Yulianna Avdeeva, and Dmitri Makhtin passing through our auditoriums. We will welcome great artists from our land, such as Ainhoa Arteta, Asier Polo, the Orfeón Donostiarra Choir, and the Orfeón Pamplonés Choir.
