López Cobos asked to change funeral flowers for money for music school

The music director Jesus Lopez Cobos, who died last Friday in Berlin at the age of 78, asked in life that the money that people could spend on crowns and bouquets for his funeral would be used in making contributions to music school that bears his name in Toro.

The mayor of Toro, Tomás del Bien, has revealed the will of the teacher born in this town of Zamora, who communicated to the family before dying in order to improve the equipment of musical instruments and the facilities of the Jesús López Cobos music school .

The announcement was made by the mayor of Toro during the plenary session held this afternoon to award the city’s gold medal to one of the most important Spanish conductors of the last century and with greater international fame.

The baton that led to orchestras of the likes of the London Philharmonic, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and the National Orchestra of Spain already carried out a similar initiative eight years ago, on the occasion of his seventieth birthday.

On that occasion he offered a party in Lausanne (Switzerland) with about two hundred guests to which he requested that instead of a birthday gift they should deposit money in a bank account to allocate it to purchase instruments and assume operating expenses of the municipal music school Jesús López Cobos de Toro.

This initiative allowed the collection of 24,000 euros that were given to the Toro City Council as the manager of that school, while a bank account has also been set up for the purpose of the funeral.

“Any person or entity that wants to show their mourning and respect for the deceased with the sending of flowers, they are asked to make the contribution equivalent to the cost of the same as a donation to the Municipal School of Music,” said the mayor Of bull.

Tomás del Bien has stressed that this was the desire of the “teacher” who has transferred the family.

Toro City Council has started today the procedures to grant, posthumously, the gold medal to which he was musical director of the Teatro Real de Madrid, he directed the Berlin Opera and was emeritus director of the Castilla y León Symphony Orchestra.

The Toresano Consistory aims to promote an international music festival with an annual character that recalls the name of the most international Toresan “baton” and that in its first edition serves to deliver to its relatives that gold medal of the city of which it was also a favorite son Of bull.

Tomás del Bien has also detailed that the details and the date of the funeral for López Cobos, whose mortal remains will be traveling from Berlin to Toro on Friday, March 16, have already been closed.

It is expected the arrival of the coffin to the town of Zamora at mid afternoon of that day and from then until noon the next day will install the burning chapel in the City of Toro.

Half an hour later, the funeral mass will begin at the Collegiate Church of Santa María la Mayor, as it is the largest and most capacious temple of Toro.

Later, in the strictest family intimacy, the funeral will be celebrated in the monastery of Sancti Spiritus of the town in which López Cobos was born in 1940.

Let the music sound with the online loans

Let the music sound with the online loans

The gift of music is something that only a fortunate few have. Knowing his language and making art with him is already complicated enough so that, between the artist and his end, more factors get in the way. However, the price of instruments often widens these difficulties. So, if we do not have enough capital but we do not want the music to stop, we can opt for online loans. With an adequate credit, even if we do not have at that moment all the economic resources that are needed to buy our instrument, we could finance it and get it to sound non-stop.

What does an online loan offer for musical projects?

In the market, there are personal loans that are intended for any purpose. That is, we can use them for the reason we want. However, if we want capital for a specific project, we can weigh a somewhat more centralized type of financing .

If in our case what we want to finance is a musical theme, we could study the characteristics of one of the best loans in the current market. The personal loan that finances Cofidis musical instruments.

 

Lender Amount Cost Advantage  
Cofidis Musical Instrument Project Credit From € 4,000 to € 15,000 From 8.95% TIN (9.33% APR)
  • No commissions
  • No linked products
  • Without changing bank
  • Transfer in 24 hours after approval
  • Free advance refund
 

According to the world’s largest chain of musical instrument stores, the Guitar Center, sales have fallen dramatically in recent years. Especially in the case of electric guitars. Even in the case of Fender or Gibson guitars, the main brands, there has been a decline in this instrument that undoubtedly identifies with rock . This, according to the figures, is explained by the fact that in the past decade they sold 1.5 million electric guitars a year. In 2016, however, barely half a million instruments were exceeded.

The truth is that the high prices that instruments have do not help their sales. However, with the loan that we see in the table, therefore, we could finance them (even those of great importance such as piano, saxophone, violin, electric guitar or acoustic and drums, among others).

The advantage of this type of personal loan

If we are thinking of applying for the Cofidís Musical Instrument Project Credit, we must know one of its greatest advantages: flexibility. The personal loans offered by this financial institution allow you to change the term or monthly installments of our credit so that it adapts better to our current situation.

In addition, Cofidis credits also offer a great advantage called “wild card service”. This particularity consists of being able to postpone a one-month fee in which, for example, our expenses have increased. In this way we would have the added advantage of being able to postpone this payment and spend that month without problems of economic management.

Another advantage that we can highlight from this online loan would be that of not requiring the change of bank. If our bank is another, anyway, we could access this project credit. And besides not needing exclusivity, they would not charge us commission for the opening of the new account. So, if we need to finance the purchase of our musical instrument, we will be able to weigh this type of advantages that make our personal loan adapt to us and not the other way around.

Puig will influence the financing in the meeting with Sánchez in Castellón: "With music or not, the lyrics are the same"

Puig will influence the financing in the meeting with Sánchez in Castellón: “With music or not, the lyrics are the same”

The ‘president’ of the Generalitat, Ximo Puig, has advanced that will affect the issue of regional funding at the informal meeting that will be held this Friday in Castellón with the President of the Government, Pedro Sánchez, before the official meeting scheduled for September. “It is evident that with music or without music, the lyrics are the same: the Comunitat Valenciana must have what it deserves,” said the head of the Consell.

This is what he said in an interview with Cadena SER, collected by Europa Press, asked if he could claim better autonomic financing for Sánchez “with the music of The Killers in the background”, in reference to the coincidence of the meeting with the second This Friday’s International Festival of Benicàssim (FIB), in which the Las Vegas band performs.

Puig has remarked that he will not attend the concerts of the FIB because it coincides with the seminar of the Consell in Castalla (Alicante), but he will go to Castellón for the meeting with Sánchez. In any case, has stressed that it is an informal meeting and that the official will take place “when appropriate, in September, and where appropriate”, in La Moncloa, as it has indicated that the round of Sanchez with autonomic presidents follow the criteria from the date of approval of the autonomy statute. “There’s nothing to say, we can not say anything,” he said.

Yes, he has greeted the “gesture” of the president of the Executive to schedule a meeting outside the formal one, because “the fundamental thing is to talk”. In fact, he assured that he has already spoken “several days by phone” with Sanchez, so this Friday will affect “what he already knows: we need concrete actions for 2018-2019 and change the model (financing) to guarantee the uniqueness of the territories and the equality between citizens “.

In this context, the head of the Consell has valued positively that the new objectives of deficit and debt that will mark this Thursday the Council of Fiscal and Financial Policy (CPFF) as “a new time and a new atmosphere that is already demonstrating a new mood” of the government. However, he insisted that it be more concrete, through “immediate actions”.

Therefore, he has guaranteed that “the lyrics will be the same as we sang to Rajoy: Now we sing it to Sanchez and we will sing it to anyone”, with the aim of overcoming the “boredom” before the imbalance of the Community in financing.

Asked if the advances will be a first step for greater indebtedness, has specified that the debt can be seen as much as what the Comunitat owes as what Spain owes to the region. “What some communities like Galicia have been given as regular financing, we have been given credit,” he lamented in this regard, what he sees as an “asymmetry” and “basic injustice.”

To solve it, he has advocated mutualizing the debt or that the State assumes directly, “at least the part that corresponds to the underfunding”. “We know that here there has been waste, mismanagement and corruption, and that part obviously we have to assume the Valencians,” he stressed, to reiterate that “the substantial part of the debt has to do with underfunding.” In short, “it is of a crushing logic and ethically irreprochable that finally its balance is substantiated”.

IRRITATED BY FEIJÓO

Puig has returned to criticize the statements of the president of the Xunta de Galicia, Alberto Núñez Feijóo, that it would be a “moral and economic error to cancel the debt to some communities.” “What is immoral is to maintain the state of inequality we live in Spain between some citizens and another,” he said, adding that he is “very angry” when he hears the “popular” in these terms.

“What we demand is simply respect for Valencians,” he has claimed, to give as an example that “if we received the resources per inhabitant of Galicia, we would have balanced the budget”.

“CATALUNYA IS MISTAKEN” BY NOT GOING TO THE CPFF

On the other hand, questioned by the fact that Catalonia is not going to be present at the CPFF, Ximo Puig has remarked that “bilateral meetings will also be produced by the Community with the Ministry of Finance”, although he has valued an “error” that does not attend the organ.

“Nor is it good for us that a possible ally is not in this multilateral debate, Catalonia is wrong and does not favor the citizens of Catalonia that attitude,” he said, although he considers that “that is his problem” and that the Government’s objective Valencian is still talking about the “good start” that the new deficit targets imply. It has also marked as a goal for the CPFF to address the 2019 Budgets and the “confidence generation” in the markets.
