Agbar celebrates its 150th anniversary with a concert by the Escolania de Montserrat choir

To celebrate its 150th anniversary, Agbar has organised a charity concert for the NGO Casal dels Infants by the Escolania de Montserrat boys’ choir, to be held on Thursday, 2 March, at 7 pm at the Palau de la Música Catalana.

All the money raised from donations will go towards the Casal dels Infants Vincles project, which aims to strengthen the training and relational skills of single mothers with children under three years of age and help them in the care and upbringing of their children, to prevent situations of risk of exclusion. Since it started, this initiative has helped 330 mothers and children in different districts of Catalonia.

The Spanish Minister for Health, Social Services and Equality, Dolors Montserrat; the Catalan Government’s Minister for Culture, Santi Vila; the government delegate in Catalonia, Enric Millo; and the former president of Catalonia, José Montilla, among other figures, have confirmed their attendance.

The concert is one of the events celebrating the 150th anniversary of Aigües de Barcelona and is the result of an agreement signed in 2014 between the Agbar Foundation and the Abbey of Montserrat to promote the activity of the Escolania de Montserrat choir.
