The Councilor for Culture, Mercè Carulla, values the start of the Easter Festival very positively, a commitment of the Paeria de Cervera to support the cultural sector.
“In the middle of a partial confinement, with curfew, suspension of cultural events with the public, among other suspensions, for the health measures that need to be taken because of the global pandemic we are experiencing, the Paeria de Cervera wanted to bet on supporting culture and giving an economic boost to the professionals who live in it.
This past weekend we inaugurated the 10th edition of the Cervera Easter Festival in an atypical format, but which has been very well received by the population. A digital format, by Lleida TV and also streaming on the website of Lleida TV and the Festival itself, with spectacular audience data that makes us congratulate ourselves.
We must remember that the Festival is a strategic festival of Catalan classical music, recognized by the Department of Culture of the Generalitat as such, and this is thanks to the efforts of all the people who have worked there to this day. Xavier Puig, apparently of the Festival, he had the brilliant idea of thinking that in Catalonia an event was needed where Catalan music and composers were recognized, often forgotten or blurred, and which has not been given the importance it deserves by the mere fact of being at home. Therefore, he 2010 the first edition began with a magnificent festival that was very successful in its first year, to this day.
In the coming days the foundations will be laid for the new artistic direction with a view to the years 2021-2024, in the same way that those of communication and production will do, a way to make transparent that the new government of the Paeria we want to be the one that prevails in the hirings. Therefore, We hope that the Festival of 2021 is of the same quality as this year and has the same or better reception from the people who will enjoy it.
This coming weekend we will continue to program culture and get it to every corner of every home, with the Ginesta Choir, the Cobla de Cambra de Catalunya, Mireia Pintó i Vladislav Bronevetzky, i Alba Ventura.
We hope you enjoy it and enjoy it.”
