Formentera commemorates International Women's Day with "Dones al piano" recital

The Offices of Culture and Equality of the Consell de Formentera are pleased to report that the Sala de Cultura (Cinema) will host Women on the Piano (Dones al piano). This recital, dedicated to International Women's Day, will take place Saturday 18 March at 8.00pm and will be free with limited capacity.

Anabel Márquez, a Valencian pianist and teacher based on Formentera, will offer a recital of piano works by female composers and will make a journey through the history of music.

Anabel Márquez studied piano in Valencia under Maria Enriqueta Navarro in professional studies and with concert pianist Mario Monreal in advanced studies, as well as flute studies with Miguel Llopis and Joaquín Gericó. She furthered her studies with Guillermo González, Brenno Ambrossinni and Stanislav Pochekin, among others.

Since 2001 she has lived on Formentera, working for 16 years as a piano teacher and head of studies at the Formentera Municipal School of Music and Dance, and as a teacher in the extension classroom of the "Catalina Bufí" Professional Conservatory of Music and Dance of Eivissa and Formentera, where she earned the position of career civil servant in 2006 and continues to practise today.

Despite a primary focus on education, Márquez has also performed chamber concerts on each of the Pine Islands and collaborated with the City of Eivissa Symphonic Orchestra.

The recital will include pieces by composers such as Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerra, Marianne Von Martínez, Fanny Mendelssohn, Clara Schumann, Teresa Carreño, Cécile Chaminade, Lili Boulanger and Mercè Pons.

Stands this year are up to 26, from 18 last year, with participants including 15 companies, 9 entities, Formentera Local Police and Formentera Fire Fighters. "The positive experience of 2022 encouraged us to continue with this initiative, which is part of Formentera Impulsa", said President Juan. "The continuity of measures like is key to making our job market more stable and improving the competence of companies and the training of our workers".

Antoni Baos, director of vocational training of the Balearic Government, gave an overview of the opportunities offered this year at the fair, "for students and people who essentially want an island with more resources and possibilities".

The day also featured five training and entrepreneurship workshops for young people and adults, and an aperitif was also served by students of the cooking and catering programme at IES Marc Ferrer.

The second Employment and Enterprise Fair is organised jointly with IES Marc Ferrer and the Employment Service of the Balearic Islands (SOIB), with the collaboration of the Balearic Institute for Business Innovation (IDI), the Chamber of Commerce and the island's association small and medium-sized businesses (Pimef) and the participation of local companies.
