“Supporting culture means strengthening creativity, social ties and everything that enriches contemporary society. For this reason, supporting “la Simfònica” is part of our engagement with society.”
JOSEP OLIU CREUS President, Banc Sabadell (Sabadell Bank)
"As well as being one of the most exquisite arts, music is a bridge for communication and harmony between people and between the world's different cultures. Because we work towards this spirit of interrelation, from the beginning we have given our support to the Orquestra Simfònica del Vallès and to the expansion of its popular base"
SALVADOR SOLEY JUNOY President, Caixa Sabadell (Sabadell Savings Bank)
"In a constantly evolving society like ours, classical values offer a safe wager. Investing in "la Simfònica" guarantees that wager, offering the possibility that the public, both here and elsewhere, will associate the positive values represented by music (culture, sensitivity, tradition) with the image of our company."
