The Royal Family of Spain celebrates with joy. This Thursday, October 19, marked the beginning of the events related to the awarding of the Princess of Asturias, which will take place on October 20.
The concert marked a special meeting for the entire royal family since Princess Leonor entered the Military Academy and Princess Sofia left to study in Wales.
Princess of Asturias Awards Concert
The Princess of Asturias Awards Concert took place at the Prince Felipe Auditorium, where they were greeted by a crowd of people gathered at the gates of the venue.
Upon arrival, the King and Queen and their daughters received a standing ovation from the audience, which included the award winners.
This is the third year in a row that Leonor and Sofia have attended the event, which was previously reserved for the King and Queen.
More than 1,000 people attended the dress rehearsal of the Choir of the Princess of Asturias Foundation, together with the Symphony Orchestra of the Principality, which took place on Wednesday.
The concert was attended by 1,800 people who enjoyed the performance of ‘Fantasia’ by Thomas Tallis and ‘Dona nobis pacem’ by Ralph Vaughan Williams, conducted by Martyn Brabbins. All this in the presence of the entire Royal Family.
