Sports, concerts and youth activities take centre stage this week




The Adeje Fiestas continue this week with youth-related activities in the Factory of Art, celebrating 10 years in the Adeje Youth Centre. The Centre, in the Avenido de los Ventos, is a meeting place, a place for study, experiment, rehearsal, music, and much more for the town’s younger members. The Factory of Art group will perform in the Plaza de España on Tuesday March 11th from 10pm, with a wide selection of artists gracing the stage.

Also on the bill are professional artists including Flipy, a humourist and part of the Paramount Comedy Real Strong Crew hip-hop troupe. New Age Duet, a string ensemble formed by the young violinist Marta Darias with cellist David Morena, both from the Adeje School of Music, and Luna Bo, a promising young singer, perform and the Dixie band will also be on stage to keep the party going.


Wednesday October 12th is a national holiday, and from 9am that morning Adeje hosts the Cross Popular sporting competition. At midday there will be a musical offering from Mesturao and that evening from 8pm in the Plaza de España the public are invited to a concert with the Adeje Orchestra of Modern Music.

Children have another special date on October 13th from 6pm, with Aladdin taking over the Plaza de España in a show for all the family. And on Friday October 14th it’s the turn of Miss Sur contestants with the contest followed by a party in the Plaza with music from Kimbara.

Delighted at the announcement of a series of educational concerts by the Municipal school of music and dance for our children in Adeje, in partnership with local primary and secondary schools and Adeje council.

There will be three concerts to introduce children to the world of music, instruments and the excellent School of Music and Dance we have here in Adeje.  The move is in  consultation with local schools  and none of the activities will interfere with classes, but hopefully will let the children discover a whole new way of expressing themselves.

I will post more details in the blog later and dates of the concert when they become available.


Music to my ears!

Music to my ears

This Thursday in the Convento de Adeje (just beside the Town Hall) there is a free concert of chamber music courtesy of the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra, at 8pm.

The piece chosen for the performance by Graupner, Martin and Mendelssohn, and are all string instrument compositions.

Local cultural councillor Nayra Medina Bethencourt said it was terrific that Adeje has been included in the series of chamber music concerts and everyone who can is urged to attend.  The Convent building is also an super choice of location with excellent acoustics for concerts of this nature.
