Julian Orbon Conservatory of Aviles (Asturias – Spain), celebrates its first cultural week that runs from this Friday, March 24th to Sunday, April 2nd, and will have a variety of daily activities, including various concerts and conferences.


The purpose of this week is to open the doors of the conservatory to both the educational community and to the city of Avilés, to publicize the studies that are taught in the center and their different professional careers.
