The Miramon Matinées are back next Saturday 10 October

After the loss of six matinées of the previous season due to the pandemic, the series of concerts is back with renewed strength, with some of the proposals lost in spring; many of the orchestra's ensembles are preparing to offer their recitals, the Kup taldea and Suhar korua will be joining us, and the complete orchestra will offer a general rehearsal under the orders of its chief conductor, Robert Treviño.

The season will kick off next Saturday 10 October at 11:00 in Miramon with Belharra, comprised by musicians from the orchestra, who will perform two string quartets by Schubert and Beethoven.

The Basque National Orchestra changes the dates of several auditions

The Basque National Orchestra has changed the dates of three auditions: two for a seat in the orchestra (one flute tutti playing piccolo and two viola tutti) and one for double-bass extra musicians. Contrary to initial plans, these will now take place in August.

The harp soloist audition will still take place in early October, and the orchestra has announced a further audition in August for bass trombone extra musicians.
