The EDP Foundation sponsors the inaugural concert of the International Festival of Santander




The EDP Foundation remains committed to the International Festival of Santander and has shown its support to this cultural summer event by renewing the collaboration agreement that the two institutions have had for a number of years.

The executive director of the International Festival of Santander Foundation, Valentina Granados, and the executive director of the EDP Foundation, Vanda Martins, signed the agreement this week at the corporate headquarters of the company in Bilbao.

The EDP Foundation will sponsor the concert, which will take place on Saturday, August 5 with Juan Pérez Floristán and the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, under the baton of Juanjo Mena. The Sevillian pianist, winner of the Paloma O'Shea International Piano Competition in 2015, will play "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini” by Rachmaninov, at an event that will include Beethoven’s “Egmont” overture and Berlioz’s “Symphonie fantastique” (Fantastical Symphony). The concert will be held at 8:30 pm in the Argenta Room at the Palacio de Festivales de Santander (Festival Hall of Cantabria).

“It is very important for us to have the support of sponsors such as the EDP because it allows us to carry on the high quality artistic line of previous years, as well as planning a top rate varied programme. These types of collaboration help us to grow, be more ambitious and work to get new audiences to enjoy our concerts, recitals and performances,” said Valentina Granados.

With the renewal of this agreement, the EDP Foundation reaffirmed its commitment to one of the most important cultural events in Cantabria, as well as the Cantabrian region itself, which is one of its main fields of interest.

“The EDP Foundation has a strong commitment to culture. In that regard, having the chance to collaborate in a musical event of these characteristics is an honour and a commitment to the future. We are also aware of the importance of the Festival in the cultural development of Santander," said Vanda Martins.
