Al Bano and Pep Sala, together at the Christmas Concert of the Fundació Montserrat Caballé

Who was going to tell us that we would see two musicians as different as Al Bano and Pep Sala together on the same stage. The first, an iconic Italian singer, and the second, an influential Catalan composer. But they both had one thing in common: an intimate friendship with the soprano Montserrat Caballé, and this is precisely the reason why they will perform in the first concert organized by the Fundació Montserrat Caballé, the Christmas Concert.

Sala and Al Bano will take the stage as special guests due to their emotional connection with the late soprano, in a concert that will take place this Monday at 8 p.m. in the Basilica of Santa Maria del Mar in Barcelona, ​​where arias and duets will be performed. of operas, and Christmas songs like Holy night Y White Christmas. In this evening, in addition, some of the winners and winners of the Montserrat Caballé Canticle Contest will participate, as well as some of the last students of the soprano, who had a special interest in operatic musical education and spent a lot of time teaching it.
