José Enrique Ayarra has been the titular organist at the chapel of Los Venerables ever since the Focus-Abengoa Foundation commissioned Gerhard Grenzing in 1988 to make an organ for the chapel of the Hospital de los Venerables in Seville.

Focus-Abengoa Foundation

The Focus-Abengoa Foundation was created in 1982 as a result of the cultural work begun in 1972 by Abengoa with the publication of the works Temas Sevillanos (Themes of Seville) and Iconografía de Sevilla (Iconography of Seville). A collection of documents, books and engravings on the Kingdom of Seville and by Sevillian authors was created during the same period. This initial cultural work showed Abengoa’s directors the importance of the company’s involvement in activities that directly benefit society, beyond the firm’s core technology work, which led to the creation of the Seville Cultural Fund Foundation. The Hospital de los Venerables, a 17th century monument and the headquarters of the Focus-Abengoa Foundation in Seville, has housed the Diego Velázquez Research Centre, a leading institution for studying and disseminating the Baroque era and the Sevillian period of this universally renowned artist, following the acquisition of Velázquez’s Santa Rufina by the Foundation in 2007.

The Seville Royal Symphony Orchestra

The chamber orchestra of the Seville Royal Symphony Orchestra, comprising teachers from the Symphony Orchestra who also provide the artistic direction, was established in 1998 to perform the repertoire of music written for chamber orchestras. Since its inaugural concert in Seville on 24 February 1998, the Chamber Orchestra of the Seville Royal Symphony Orchestra has continuously expanded its repertoire, which includes the principal chamber works and encompasses a historical and aesthetic period that begins with the Baroque (J. S. Bach, G. F. Handel, A. Vivaldi, G. B. Pergolesi...), moving through classical music (F. J. Haydn, W. A. Mozart), the romantics and post-romantics (J. Suk, E. Elgar, E. Grieg, F. Mendelssohn, P. I. Tchaikovsky...), onto contemporary composers (B. Britten, M. Mozetich, N. Rota, ...) and Spanish composers (I. Albéniz, J. C. Arriaga, J. Turina...).
