Santa Cecilia

imageAt the weekend, the Unión Musical de Bigastro will be paying homage to the patron saint of musicians, Santa Cecilia.

This year the celebrations are dedicated to the bigastrense, Francisco Grau Vegara, the only musical general in Spain.

Events begin on Friday when students and teachers from the music school will meet with General Grau. The band will then parade around the streets with the statue of Santa Cecilia and offer an act of recognition to the general.

If you don’t go to any other concert by the local band, you really should go to this one. It starts at 8pm on Saturday in the Auditorium - better be there a little earlier though because it will be popular.
