Day of valencian music

dia_mus_valencianaSince 1999, the Day of Valencian Music has taken place on 29th April, coinciding with the date on which the Regional Legislature approved the Valencia Law of Music.The central event, which has been celebrated since 2001 in the Palau de la Música de Valencia (Valencia Palace of Music), features the winning groups from the Valencia Region Band Competition held the previous year. A band composed of musicians drawn from the three winning groups then performs a piece by a Valencian composer and commissioned expressly for the occasion by the Generalitat (Valencian Regional Government).The same piece is then interpreted by various musical societies in the approximately 400 concerts that take place during the following month throughout the Valencia Region.
