Seguros Catalana Occidente renews its support for the Kursaal Theatre in Manresa (Barcelona)

"The Company renews its support for the classical music and opera programme as part of its commitment to culture and the performing arts."

Seguros Catalana Occidente has renewed its agreement to cooperate with Manresana d'Equipaments Escènics, the company that manages the Kursaal Theatre in Manresa (Barcelona). The Company supports the Kursaal's programme, especially operatic works and classical music concerts, as part of a clear commitment to culture and the performing arts.

The agreement, signed by Daniel Concepción, Director of the Manresa branch of Seguros Catalana Occidente, and Jordi Basomba, Manager of Manresana d'Equipaments Escènics (MEES), will help to maintain the theatre's high quality programming and its leading position in the field of culture.

Seguros Catalana Occidente has provided support for the Kursaal's programming since the theatre opened, 11 years ago, support that has been linked from the very beginning with the name of Jesús Serra. Born in El Pont de Vilomara, Jesús Serra was the founder of Grupo Catalana Occidente and his work as a patron of the arts, both privately and via Fundación Catalana Occidente, which was set up in 1998, was acknowledged when the name of the Foundation was changed to Fundación Jesús Serra.
