The festival will offer a total of 70 concerts/meetings, distributed over 5 days in the multiple halls of the Euskalduna Palace, with popular prices between 5 € and 12 €, and with names of famous composers such as Barber, Elgar, Britten, Gershwin, Korngold, Bernstein, Copland, Nyman, Herrmann, Glass or Williams in the programs.
