Centenary of the foundation of the Orfeo Catala 6.9.1991
The Orfeó Català is a choral society based in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, which was founded in 1891 by Lluís Millet and Amadeu Vives. The Palau de la Música Catalana, a major Barcelona landmark, was commissioned for the choral society in 1904, and completed in 1908.
"A declaration of love for choral music. One of the greatest symbols of Catalan culture..., The Orfeó Català is all this and more."
