From April 2 to 7 in Puerto de la Cruz – Tenerife – Spain
Enjoy life, laughs, gastronomy, singing, the encounters … the walks along the oceanic coast and the pleasure of resting in this experience designed especially to enjoy the music and the island’s climate.
Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife is a well-known holiday center and has a well-preserved old town that was declared a Historic Artistic Site in 1985.
The nerve center is the lively Plaza del Charco. From there you can start your tour through places such as Casa de la Aduana, Casa Miranda, La Peña de Francia Church or the Hotel Marquesa. One of the most bustling and most authentic corners is its fishing pier, next to the fishing district of La Ranilla. Leaving also without visiting the Botanical Garden (created in the seventeenth century) is a real crime.
El Teide is located in the center of the island and its top it’s the highest peak in Spain, with 3,718 meters. Its record also include that it is the most visited national park in Spain and Europe, receiving around three million tourists a year.
Its people, the magic of the Atlantic bathing its coasts, the impressive Teide controlling the entire ocean, its exquisite cuisine and its island character, make Puerto de la Cruz the ideal place for our choirs to have a unique and unrepeatable experience.
A Corearte experience!
It will be held in the city of Puerto de la Cruz (Tenerife, Canary Islands) between the 2nd and 7th of April 2019.

Choral singing workshops are one of the activities in which Corearte pays greater attention. These give participants the opportunity to work with internationally renowned masters and share the rehearsals with the rest of the participants.
In this edition of Corearte Festival Puerto de la Cruz we will feature José Hijar Polo, conducting a participative concert of the “Petite Messe Solennelle” by Giochino Rossini along with Reyes Bartlet Choir of Puerto de la Cruz.
The stages for the realization of the concerts are chosen for their acoustic quality and their cultural and / or architectural interest, thus providing an opportunity for the participating choirs to sing in important places of the island.
