At a press conference, the Director of Culture of the Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa, Mari Jose Telleria, accompanied by the Provincial Councilor for Culture, Harkaitz Millán, and the Mayor of Zumarraga, Mikel Serrano, considered «magnificent news that this music cycle, which is a reference in Gipuzkoa, can be carried out ».
The Musica de la Antigua cycle began in 1984 and was one of the first in Gipuzkoa together with Deba. Millán and Serrano have stressed that “one more year the quality and variety are once again assured”.
“Added to the quality of the program is the beauty of the environment and the exceptional acoustics of the Antigua hermitage, which makes these concerts an unbeatable experience,” they added. Serrano stressed that this year “will be the 38th uninterrupted edition of the cycle”, something that fills with “pride” and “more so in a year of pandemic like this, since in addition to highlighting the cultural heritage of Zumarraga as it is the Hermitage of Antigua, shows that culture is safe ».
