It seems like only yesterday, but it’s been ten years since our sigmatic life started on August 27th, 2008! We should celebrate this at some point, right? We are sure we will get the chance to do so.

We are really glad to announce some of the events of our 10th anniversary national and international tour 2018. We will post more information about it to our webpage’s calendar, as well as to our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram profiles.

As it has become a tradition these last few years, in 2018 the sigmatics will travel across the pond to visit our friends in Latin America not once or twice, but three times! This year’s scheduled Latin American tours to celebrate our 10th anniversary will be held in Mexico (from the 4th to the 13th of October), Colombia (from the 2nd to the 10th of November) and Argentina (from the 24th to the 28th of November).
We will also work on new research projects, commissions and very special premieres during this 10th anniversary year. We will collaborate side by side with our compositors Manuel Hidalgo, Alberto Bernal, Alberto Carretero, Andrés Valero Castell, as well as Liza Lim (Australia), Raphaël Cendo (France), Sergio Luque and José Luis Hurtado (Mexico), Fabian Panisello (Argentina) and Juan Pablo Carreño and Luis Miguel Delgado (Colombia).
We are especially excited to undertake a solidarity project from the 14th to the 17th of December in Tunisia (the cradle of the Arab Spring revolutions of 2010), along with the Association for the Promotion of Contemporary Music in Monastir. We will run workshops, conferences and concerts with young music students from Tunisia.
To finish this sneak peak of 2018, we will launch the album of the cycle ‘Poética del Laberinto’, by the composer Alberto Posadas (National Award for Music of Spain Winner). It will be published next autumn by WERGO, the renowned German record label.
As you have seen, 2018 is going to be full of news and different activities to celebrate SIGMA Project’s 10th anniversary, where we will love to keep counting on your friendship and presence.
We will keep you posted!!
