Costa Blanca News (South Edition) - - What’s On - By Nuria Pérez nperez@cb­

THE STREETS and plazas of San Pe­dro del Pi­natar are the venue of the first edi­tion of the Al­le­gro gas­tro-mu­sic fes­ti­val to­mor­row (Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 14).

The event com­bines live clas­si­cal mu­sic and wine and food tast­ings in the main streets and squares in the town and is free.

It will be in­au­gu­rated to­day (Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 12) at 21.00 with a con­cert by the Ars Fu­tu­ral in­stru­men­tal band in the Ca­ja­mur­cia cul­tural hall at Plaza de la Con­sti­tu­ción.

The Al­le­gro fes­ti­val starts at Spanish aper­i­tif time at 12.45 on Satur­day in Plaza de la Con­sti­tu­ción with a con­cert by the cham­ber orches­tra Cam­mer­ata and a food tast­ing served by The Fac­tory Burger and a glass of Gente de Mal Vivir ver­mouth.

The fe­male duet On Danse will be per­form­ing a harp­si­chord con­cert and a dance show at cof­fee time (16.30) in the square of the Barón de Beni­fayó mu­seum in Avenida del Pilar. The con­cert will be ac­com­pa­nied by a se­lec­tion of cof­fees, pas­tries and cakes served by El Solda­dito de Plomo bak­ery.

The fes­ti­val fin­ishes at 21.00 with a ‘sym­phonic’ wine tast­ing. The choir di­rected by Fernán­dez Ca­ballero and Mur­cia city orches­tra will be play­ing tra­di­tional re­gional mu­sic in Plaza de Es­paña.

Tra­di­tional re­gional food will be served by Cater­ing José An­to­nio and the win­ery and gas­tro-bar Vinis­simo will be serv­ing a se­lec­tion of wines.

Coun­cil­lor for cul­ture Sil­via Egea said the aim was to of­fer an al­ter­na­tive and new mu­si­cal, dance and gas­tro­nomic event in the area to both vis­i­tors and lo­cal peo­ple and to en­cour­age them to en­joy cul­ture in the most pop­u­lar squares in the town.
