The mission of the Fundació Orfeó Català-Palau de la Música Catalana is to promote music, particularly choir singing, knowledge and dissemination of cultural heritage, and to cooperate towards the consolidation of social cohesion. Since 2012 the Foundation assumes the management and activities of the Palau de la Música Catalana and its choirs. A model that makes it possible to simplify the management of the Palau, optimising its resources and giving it greater transparency. This enables the representation of the Orfeó Català, the Public Authorities and Patrons. The Chairwoman of the Associació is also the Chairwoman of the Fundació OC-PMC.
This gives rise to a symbiosis between the Palau de la Música Catalana and the Orfeó Català, which bestows a special note of singularity on the institution.
An open, dynamic and plural entity which, through its activity, concerts and choirs promotes musical practice and training, knowledge of heritage and the dissemination of culture among a diversified public that reflects Catalan society.
Therefore, the Palau de la Música Catalana and the Orfeó Català are at a historic moment in time characterised by the recovery of the foundational values of the Orfeó Català as the cornerstone of the Foundation’s strategic positioning. Said values are excellence, participation, social commitment and Catalan identity, the pillars on which the Orfeó Català was founded in 1891 and which led to the construction of the Palau in 1905 and are the entity’s driving force.
