iguazu IN CONCERT

Iguazú in Concert is an international festival of children's orchestras and choirs. 700 children and young people from the 5 continents making music together, in one of the most wonderful natural settings in the world: the Iguazu Falls and the missionary jungle in all its splendor. The initiative -idea and organization of the Province of Misiones, with the support of the Federal Investment Council (IFC) - seeks to strengthen natural attractions and strengthen the cultural offer of the region. For 6 uninterrupted days, free concerts take place in the best hotels in the region, La Aripuca and the Puerto Iguazú amphitheater. As the festival closes, Iguazú in Concierto says goodbye with a final mega-concert in the gardens of the Sheraton Hotel, inside the Iguazú National Park. An incredible staging that brings together orchestras, choirs and soloists summoned in a single stage with the Iguazu Falls as a backdrop. In 2015 the festival had the talented missionary Chango Spasiuk as godfather. In 2014, the festival was attended by Susana Giménez as a special guest and IEC ambassador. In 2013, Iguazú en Concierto had Elena Roger as the godmother of the event. She performed several performances throughout the festival, including her performance in the final concert with the 700 children and young people performing songs like "Don't Cry for Me Argentina" and "La Pampa de los Guanacas". In 2012, Gustavo Santaolalla was the godfather and one of the directors of the grand final concert, which had a repertoire of movie music covering the great filmographic themes of all time. Iguazú in Concierto has received representatives from countries around the world such as China, United States, Russia, South Africa, Germany, France, Italy, Brazil, Mexico, Australia, Spain, Costa Rica, among many others. Each orchestra, choir or soloist summoned is chosen through an exhaustive search conducted by the Art Direction of the festival by Andrea Merenzon, recognized nationally and internationally in its field, and winner of a Latin Grammy 2005
