Three Benidorm music schools to receive funding boost in 2023


Musical services in Benidorm are set to get a funding boost in 2023 as the council announces investment from the Department for Culture.

On 23rd of September, Mayor of Benidorm, Jaime Jesús Pérez, announced an investment of €35,000 in three local music service providers. Pérez explained that his administration increased funding by €3000 from previous years to strengthen youth musical education in the area. Pérez described music as a “fundamental pillar” of the city’s culture and heritage, saying the music schools’ work “enrich the culture of Benidorm”.

A maximum grant amount of €12,000 each will be allocated to Unión Musical de Benidorm and the Societat Musical La Nova, while the Societat Musical l’Illa will receive €11,040.

Each entity bid for the money and the council assessed their proposals. Money was then granted based on criteria such as number of staff and students and overall budget for the next year.

Between the three music schools, around 600 students will benefit from the new investment in musical education.
