Queen Letizia of Spain presided over the XX Concert “In Memoriam” Victims of Terrorism organized by the Victims of Terrorism Foundation at the National Music Auditorium in Madrid. The annual event brought together the main institutions of the State, Government, political parties, and different social and economic sectors of Spanish society.
This concert is held annually on the eve of March 11, the day on which the 193 victims of the attacks perpetrated in Madrid on that date in 2004 are commemorated. The objective of the Victims of Terrorism Foundation is to promote and disseminate democratic values, the defense of human rights, the plurality and freedom of citizens, and, at the same time, to be a useful vehicle for consultation for a better understanding of the situation of the group of victims of terrorism in Spain.
The event began with the interpretation of the National anthem and a brief speech by the president of the Victims of Terrorism Foundation followed by a minute of silence The RTVE Symphony Orchestra and Choir performed under the direction of Pablo González with the sponsorship of the National Institute of Performing Arts and Music, RTVE, the Montemadrid Foundation, and the Madrid City Council.
The concert then began with the Third Movement entitled “March Eleventh” from the work “Final”, by Zaragoza composer Jesús Torres (b.1965), a piece for mezzo-soprano and orchestra composed in 2017 “in memory of the victims of the attack of March 11, 2004, in Madrid” and inspired by the death of the author’s mother.
At the end of the event, Letizia received greetings from the representatives of the Radio Televisión Española Symphony Orchestra and Choir and soloists. Premiered in 1824, this great choral symphonic work by the Bonn genius is one of the best-known and most performed pieces in the entire classical repertoire.
Moving towards the Queen Letizia look of the day, Letizia wore her Sandro black top with a black midi skirt that still remains unidentified.
She paired the outfit with her Prada pumps
and her Magrit Mary clutch.
A pair of long earrings and her Karen Hallam ring finished the look.
