Dear music lovers,

It is a pleasure to address you with these words of welcome to the Gran Premi Musical Lauredià. Between November 8th and 11th, we will experience a music competition open to all instrumental modalities and performers from around the world. The purpose of this competition is to open Sant Julià de Lòria to the international music sphere. In line with the prevailing working methods today, the initial selections for this edition will take place online. The final winners will travel to Sant Julià de Lòria to compete in person at the Claror Auditorium of the Lauredian Cultural and Congress Center. The jury will designate the competition winner, who will receive not only the prize but also a cash reward.

This prize is part of the effort that the parish of Sant Julià de Lòria wants to make to open itself to the international cultural sphere. From around the world, we can learn different ways of understanding and making music. Music serves as a unifying factor between cultures; the language of music is universal. Through music, we can understand each other and, in turn, expand our intellectual horizons. From the Municipality of Sant Julià de Lòria, we hope that this 3rd Gran Premi Musical Lauredià 2023 will be followed by future editions and establish itself in the calendar of events of the Lauredian parish. To all Lauredians, those who will follow the event remotely or in person, and the participants of the Grand Musical Lauredian Prize, I wish you all to enjoy the experience that this grand musical gathering will represent for everyone.

Welcome to Gran Premi Musical Lauredià,

an international competition for classical music performers!

Classical music is a universal language that transcends boundaries, cultures, and generations. It carries within it the power to touch our souls, stir our emotions, and transport us to a world of exquisite artistry and profound expression.

This competition aims to serve as a platform to showcase the talent and dedication of classical music performers from around the world, an opportunity for emerging artists to shine.

In the spirit of camaraderie, let us embrace the beauty and power of classical music as we embark on this incredible journey of talent, passion, and artistic expression. May this competition be a testament to the enduring legacy of classical music and a celebration of the performers who breathe life into its notes.

I would like to thanks the continuous support and commitment of the Comú de Sant Julià de Lòira (the Town Council of Sant Julià), as well as the support received from the Andorran Ministry of Culture. Without them this initiative would have been impossible.

Thank you all, and let the harmonious journey begin!

The Venue

Sant Julià de Lòria is located in the septentrional side of Andorra. The comú or parish of Sant Julià de Lòria has the lowest lands in all the Principality of Andorra. In fact, its average level is not more than 1.000 metres high, that’s why Sant Juliá is a warmer place, with a less harsh winter than the rest of parishes in the principality.

Sant Julià de Lòria is connected to Spain, as La Seu is just eight kilometres to the border of Andorra. The comú of Sant Julià does perfectly mix nature and relax thanks to its large sports, festive, and cultural offer.

Where to Stay in St. Julià de Lòria

GPML doesn’t offer accommodation for contestants, so you are free to choose your most convenient lodging solution among the many hotels around. However, we can offer the possibility to book at Hotel Sant Eloi with a 10% discount for GPML contestants. If you wish to choose this hotel for your stay, please contact them through their website here
