Concert by Lira Açoriana Regional Orchestra at Teatro Faialense in Horta

The Regional Secretariat for Education and Culture, through the Regional Directorate for Culture, and in partnership with Horta City Council promotes a concert by Lira Açoriana Regional Orchestra at Teatro Faialense next Saturday, August 31, at 9:30 PM.
In the year marking the 150th anniversary of Francisco de Lacerda's birth, the concert's programme will begin with Debussy's symphonic orchestra work "Dans le Clair de Lune," followed by pieces by Gustav Holst, Wouter Lenaerts, Frank Ticheli and Antero Ávila.
Organised under the Artistic Season 2019, this one-hour concert is free, but tickets are required to be collected previously due to space management reasons.
Tickets are available at the Municipal Market from Sunday to Wednesday between 8:30 AM and 7:30 PM and from Thursday to Saturday between 8:30 AM and 11 PM, and at the Teatro Faialense ticket office on the concert's day from 7:30 PM.
