Pinksterfestival 2019 - Festival de Pentec├┤te 2019 - Pentecost Festival 2019

For the first time in its existence, the Huelgas Ensemble presents and sings in its own festival, based on a new concept:  for three days the audience is engaged in an auditory adventure of unknown works (on which experiments are sometimes carried out), new forms, and interaction between performer and audience, all taking place in an exceptional location - the village of TALANT - with its beautiful late Romanesque church.
The audience is actively involved, both before, during and after the concerts.  A festival never to be forgotten.
