Ourense International Music Festival Portico do Paraíso was launched in February 2008 in an attempt to fill a void in the musical life of the city. The idea behind it was to offer audiences the opportunity to listen to top level soloists and ensembles in the magnificent buildings that form part of Ourense’s architectural heritage.
The Cathedral, whose porch lends its name to the Festival, has a special role because it is where every Festival edition opens with a concert of sacred music. There are also exhibitions, round table sessions, lectures, master classes and meetings with the musicians, so creating a lively musical atmosphere all over the city throughout the ten days of the Festival.
Ourense City Council organizes the Festival, and the Diputación of Ourense together with the Asociación Pórtico Musical co-organize it. The Galician Regional Government – Xunta de Galicia – and the AGADIC also support the organization with their sponsorship and help.
