The Foundation sponsored two of the main concerts on the musical scene. The first opened the 75th San Sebastián Music Fortnight, when the Toulouse National Chamber Orchestra, backed by the Orquesta Donostiarra and the Orquesta Txiki, performed “The Damnation of Faust”, one of the most important scores composed by Hector Berlioz. The concert was a sell out with nearly 2,000 people in the audience. The Minister for Culture and Education of the Basque Government, the Deputy Minister for Culture, the Mayor of San Sebastián, the Gipuzkoa Provincial Councillor for Culture, and representatives of San Sebastian society and culture were at the concert. EDP was represented by the Chief Executive Officer, Massimo Rossini.

Days later, the FOUNDATION travelled from San Sebastián to the Santander International Festival. The Baroque music concert by John Eliot Gardiner delighted the audience at the packed Palacio de Festivales concert hall. EDP was represented by Massimo Rossini and Javier Saenz de Javier. The head of the Cantabrian Government, the Regional Minister for Education and Culture, the Regional Minister for Industry, the Mayor of Santander, Councillors, the Speaker of the Cantabrian Parliament and the Delegate of the Government were among the leading figures of the Autonomous Community in the audience.

Just outside Santander, the FOUNDATION was supporting the brave competitors that took on the 1,500 metres swimming, 40 kilometres cycling and 10 kilometres run, at the annual Triathlon in Castro (Cantabria) which has become a must on the calendar. Over 400 amateur athletes filled the streets of the seaside town with colour and excitement.

And the EDP FOUNDATION ended its cultural trip at Txikigune, the children’s area at the Bilbao festivities. The children were delighted by the presence of the famous Gargantua, bouncy castles, workshops many fun activities. In the evenings, EDP was present at the different plays that a variety of theatre companies put on for parents and children alike in the Plaza del Gas.
