The International Festival of Living Arts of Loja, which celebrates its 5th edition, is held every year around the date of commemoration of the Spanish independence of Loja, which is considered the Cultural Capital of Ecuador for its history of artistic and cultural production. .
It is precisely for this reason that one of the most anticipated events this year is the presentation that the Loja Symphony Orchestra will offer (due to the celebration of the 200 years of this date) on November 19 with the “Loja Bicentenaria” Concert. which will bring together more than 50 artists on stage who will pay tribute to the city of Loja for more than an hour.
“If culture bases its development on creativity, innovation and the daring to go beyond the limits, culture in the era of the pandemic has shown that the limits of innovation, daring and creativity are far beyond than expected. The example is the V International Festival of Living Arts of Loja, which has challenged all the skeptics who thought that the conditions of the country and the world were insurmountable. (….) The eyes of the world are now turning on Loja, the culture is alive.”
