The musician Salvador Sobral will animate the Rossio de Viseu, on Saturday afternoon of Easter, announced today the Councilor of Culture of the City Council in the presentation of the schedule for the season.
“Easter in Viseu will be a large and full egg, whose filling does not disappoint and does not frustrate the wrapping paper we have to present, so our beautiful wrapping paper is a promise that is fulfilled and respected in its content,” he joked the councilman Jorge Sobrado.
On the eve of Easter Sunday, Salvador Sobral takes to the stage in the Praça da República, commonly known as Rossio, “in an absolute premiere in Viseu, for an outdoor concert, free of charge and for the whole family,” Jorge Sobrado announced.
On Sunday evening, the Sé de Viseu hosts a concert with the Philharmonia Orchestra of Beiras and the Choir Voz Nua, directed by maestro António Vassalo Lourenço.
Because it is the Easter season, religious celebrations are the centre of programming that is not limited to the Catholic Church and also include the Assembly of God of Viseu, the Seventh-day Adventist Church, the Evangelical Baptist Church of Viseu and Jehovah’s Witnesses.
“Viseu will be a destination for all tastes and also for all creeds, in a perspective of openness, of inclusion so that, whoever displace, can live their faith and their religious moment, “he said.
On the weekend of April 13 and 14, the first candy show in the region will be held with 15 exhibitors who will have “the great emblematic products of Viseu and the district and also the new trend, new products and tastes and the artisanal chocolaterie“.
Jorge Sobrado added that in this show of ‘Viseu Doce’ will also be “producers of sparkling, rosy, white and red Dão”.
“The confectionery was too hidden, it was too under the table and not in the centre of the table and the ‘Viseu Doce’ is exactly the answer to this challenge launched a few months ago by the commercial association of Viseu to the Viseu autarchy”, justified the councilman.
It is also in this block that the first market of the book of Viseu will be held, between April 12 and 20, in Market 2 de Maio, with the presence of 145 publishers, more than 225 titles and more than 7,500 copies with “opportunity and discounts between the 20% and the 85% “.
The library and municipal museums will have activities “for the whole family” with initiatives that can welcome not only “children but also the grandfather who accompany them,” said Jorge Sobrado, who explained that this program “was designed to be made with the family , but also for the younger ones to have activities during the period of school suspension. “
