The great signing of José Mercé
Together with the orchestra director Juan Paulo Gómez he will star in Mercé Sinfónico, a tour that will begin in 2017.
The singer from Jerez José Mercé and the conductor from Malaga Juan Paulo Gómez will be the protagonists of the “Mercé Sinfónico” tour that will begin at the beginning of 2017 throughout the national territory.

This audiovisual project is a tribute to the artistic career of the flamenco singer where 12 of the most successful songs in his discography will be included, as well as other musical works, absolute premieres, by the Ubetense composer Cristóbal López Gándara. The symphonic arrangements of the songs have been made by Juan Paulo Gómez, who will also serve as musical and artistic director of the project. The orchestra with which the tour will take place will be the Partiture Philharmonic Orchestra, an instrumental group from Jaen that for some years has been establishing itself as one of the most relevant symphonic references on the musical scene.
