Christmas Day Concert in Santa Cruz 2021

The XXVII Edición del Concierto de Navidad de Puertos de Tenerife (27th Christmas Concert) takes place on Saturday, 25 December 2021 at 21:00hrs, in the Port of Santa Cruz de Tenerife - which last year, like so many events, was unable to take place - and is a lovely tradition to watch on Christmas Day evening. The concert will be held without an audience, given the increase in covid-19 infections diagnosed on the island.

The concert may be followed live on Radio Televisión Española, on the website and on the social networks of the Tenerife Port Authority. It will be broadcast live from 9:00 p.m. on December 25 through Televisión Española en Canarias, its website, and via radio, by Radio1, Radio5 and Radio Exterior. Later, it will be broadcast on Los Conciertos de La2, and the International channel of RTVE (how to watch the international channel). You can also follow it live at

In the XXVII edition of the Christmas Concert, the leading role, as ever, will fall to the Tenerife Symphony Orchestra (OST) under the direction of its honorary conductor, maestro Víctor Pablo Pérez, who will be accompanied by the Tenerife tenor Airam Hernández, a soloist of consolidated prestige at national and international level.

The program contains easily recognizable classical pieces such as Nella Fantasia (Ennio Morricone), Star Wars, suite for Orchestra (John Williams), Alfonsina y el mar (Ariel Ramírez) and Malagueña (Ernesto Lecuona).

At Christmas, the Puertos de Tenerife (Tenerife Ports Authority) becomes one of the most important stages of the classical music circuit in Europe in the open air - usually with 20,000 spectators every year - and with its traditional broadcasting through TV and internet, to national and international level. The concert that was born as a Christmas greeting from the port to the people of Tenerife for the commemoration of the five hundred years of the founding of the city has become an internationally recognized event that represents an invaluable projection of its culture, its climate and people.
