About 200 people attended on March 10th the charity concert 'Music for Alzheimer's' that took place in the Auditorium of the Liceu Conservatory in Barcelona. This initiative, organized by Fundació ACE and the Liceu Conservatory Foundation, aims to raise funds for Alzheimer's disease research.
The concert featured the performances of the Contrapunto Vocale choir and two chamber groups of the Liceu Conservatory, a percussion duo and a wind quintet, which offered attendees a classical music recital including pieces of composers such as Mozart, Györgi Ligeti or Keiko Abe.
This event is the first action started in the framework of the collaboration agreement that Fundació ACE and the Liceu Conservatory Foundation have recently signed with the purpose and commitment to collaborate in the fight against Alzheimer's.
Lluís Tárraga, CEO of Fundació ACE, has been very satisfied with the reception of this initiative and has stated that "the success of assistance encourages the entity to continue betting on this type of actions with which society has the opportunity to collaborate and join efforts for a cause that affects everyone."
Likewise, Tárraga thanked the Liceu Conservatory for its involvement and support "in an emotional concert that helps to give voice to this disease, through a universal language such as music, and bring it closer to the population." In recent years, Fundació ACE has intensified its efforts on training, awareness and dissemination of Alzheimer's.
