Our Mission

The Association Amigos de Música was set up with the aim of raising funds to organize and plan recitals, concerts and musical events of all types to be performed in the Algarve. Following the closure of the Centro Cultural de São Lourenço, the venue for these concerts is at the Estate of Os Agostos, near Sta. Barbara de Nexe (see Home Page for more information).

The objectives are:

  • To  maintain the highest attainable standard of music.
  • To promote and support financially a number of musical performances throughout the year.
  • To encourage the development of young Portuguese musicians by the provision of financial sponsorship and performance experience

The Amigos raises money by subscription, by donations from members and others, and from fund-raising events and sponsorship.
