Lyrical evening with the TSO and Davinia Rodríguez in Golf Costa Adeje
This July 13th the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra will play their first open air concert in South Tenerife, in Golf Costa Adeje. Organised by the Adeje council with the support of the regional department of Tourism, the orchestra will be conducted by Jader Bignamini, with Canarian soprano Davinia Rodríguez .
The concert, beginning at 9pm, reflects the Adeje council’s push to make sure that quality entertainment events are not just on offer for tourists through the ‘Happy Streets’ programme but also for residents, who will have a chance to see and hear the TSO live in the south.
The TSO is considered one of the best in Spain and also has played extensively abroad in Europe, the United States and Asia over the years. Of course it is also a cultural reference here in the islands.
Gran Canarian soprano Davinia Rodríguez has sung with some of the top opera singers in the world, including Jesús López Cobos, Plácido Domingo, James Conlon, Jeffrey Tate, Danoto Renzetti and many more. She has sung in all the great theatres in Spain, in Italy, China, and here in the Canary Islands.
Condustor Jader Bignamini is the resident conductor with the La Verdi Symphony Orchestra in Milan but has also wielded his baton with Symphony Orchestras in San Diego, Osaka, Detroit, Milwakee and this year has been busy touring South America.
The programme for the July 13th concert will feature works from Rossini, Verdi, Bizet, among others and the organisers are preparing a special stage setting which will allow the audience enjoy a spectacular sunset to live music in this very special setting.
Also participating in the production of the event are the Canarian government, the Cabildo of Tenerife and the Golf Costa Adeje club. Tickets are €15 and on sale https://www.tomaticket.es/entradas-sinfonica-de-tenerife.
The hope is that this will become a regular summer classic music event and the Adeje council will be looking to the TSO and other European bodies to offer the local public and visitors the kind of quality events that match the destination.

Lovers of Latin music are in for a real treat this Saturday with Juan Luis Guerra taking to the Golf Costa Adeje stage. The singer from the Dominican Republic, considered by many to be one of the top Latin American musicians of the day, returns to Adeje (his third time playing in South Tenerife) and will be preceded on stage by Cuban bank Orishas.
Juan Luis Guerra has sold over 30 million records, and won many Grammys and Latin Grammys. He belongs to a growing group of internationally recognised Latin artists and his popular style of merengue and Afro-Latin fusion has garnered him considerable success throughout Latin America. He does not limit himself to one style of music and incorporates diverse rhythms like merengue, bachata-fusion, balada, salsa, rock and roll, and even gospel.
Orishas, with two Latin Grammys under their musical belt, have been listed by TIME magazines in the top ten non-USA bands. While the group was born in Paris in 1998 they are, in essence, a hip hop group from Havana, Cuba. The band’s founding members are Yutuel Romera, Ruzzo Medina, Roldán González and Flaco-Pro and for this concert Yutuel, Ruzzo and Roldán will be joined on stage by two trombonists, a keyboard player, a percussionist and a DJ.
At a press conference earlier today the Adeje mayor, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga mentioned the strong connection Guerra has to his Tenerife public adding that everyone was looking forward to an excellent event, part of the Adeje summer programme. He said it was important for visitors to Adeje to have these kind of complementary activities, “quality out-door events such as this one” to enhance their holiday experience. He added that this particular concert, of Latino music, “has a lot to do as well with our identity, our culture, our history”.
Tickets for the concert are on sale through Ticketmaster.es, Ticketea.com, canariasviaja.com, entrees.es and El Corte Ingles. The organisers have also said there will be tickets on sale on the day of the concert at the site from 5pm. According to organisers the show will feature top class sound and lighting and a number of giant screens to guarantee full views for all. Doors, by the Avenida Ayyto, will open to the public at 5pm with Orishas taking to the stage at 7pm and Juan Luis Guerra just before 9pm.
For security reasons children under 6 are not allowed to attend the concert and those between the ages of 6 and 16 must be accompanied by an adult. Concert-goers will not be allowed enter the zone with food, drink, selfie sticks, or items that might be potential weapons. The organisers also remind people that, as is the norm and for reasons of copyright, any photography or filming of the concert is strictly forbidden.
The concert is co-sponsored by the Adeje council, Cepsa and in collaboration with Golf Costa Adeje, Volkswagen, Sononpluss, Dorada sin con Limón and Pepsi Maz Zero
