Carles Planas, was born in Manlleu and currently lives in Torelló (both in the Osona region).
He joined our formation in the 2023/24 season as a pianist / keyboardist. He also masters other instruments such as the viola d'arco and the ukulele.
His musical influences come, among others, from the Catalan authors of the new song (Lluís Llach, Joan Manuel Serrat...). Jazz of all time (Miles Davis, Bill Evans, Tete Montoliu...), opera , zarzuela and of all time and rock of the 60s and 70s.
As he says... "At the end of the day I like all kinds of music"
He tells us about an emotional memory:
“People who live in a town like me have always really enjoyed The local Festivals. The sound of the Cobla, the smell of food from the stalls and the laughter of the people dancing to the beat of the orchestra.
In my case, since I was born in Manlleu, my memory revolves around the Maravella International Orchestra. As a child I listened to it with admiration and my father told me the stories behind each of the songs that were played at the concert.
The fact that I am currently part of the Maravella Orchestra makes me remember those moments that have been so special to me. It makes me very happy to be able to bring a bit of happiness to the people from all over who come to see us”.
