In 2003, the Laboratory established a new institutional bond with the medical community under the name of Roemmers Junto a la Cultura.
Since then, we have offered concerts of classical and popular music, theater, ballet performances and musical appreciation classes in the main theaters throughout the country, from Jujuy to Río Gallegos.
We always choose artists with a virtuous background, whose performances transmit or highlight the same values present in our company’s daily activities: honesty, quality, effort, and respect.
Most of the people attending our concerts are physicians, pharmacists, and individuals related to the health care system.
Within the framework of the Laboratory’s 90th anniversary, Roemmers Junto a la Cultura presented Juan Carlos Baglietto and Lito Vitale in the cities of Mendoza, Córdoba, Rosario, Tucumán, and the Federal Capital.
In these five occasions, magic and enchantment flowed between the artists and the audience, a feeling that will last for a long time in the memory of those present.
Apart from the abovementioned duet, we have incorporated Patricia Sosa and Jairo to our group of popular artists; in every show, they also received the endless gratitude and applause from the audience.
The following is a brief summary of the artists who have been and are part of Roemmers junto a la Cultura to date:
Patricia Sosa started her career as a solo singer in 1990, accompanied by Oscar Mediavilla. Currently, she is considered one of the most important popular female voices in the country, who is constantly offering shows on national and foreign stages.
She is known not only for her vocal characteristics but also for the charisma she radiates in each song, a resource that enables her to cover all genres.
She also carries out important charitable work through her foundation “Pequeños Gestos, Grandes Logros” in the aboriginal communities of Chaco.
In short, she is not only an artist but also a popular character that delights and moves us in each performance.
Mario Rubén González Pierotti is Jairo’s real name. He was born in Cruz del Eje, Córdoba. He began his artistic career in Spain, where he recorded six records. Later, he became very popular in France where he was named “Chevalier of the Order of Arts and Letters.”
He offered his shows in Paris, Athens, Belgium, Madrid, Munich, Venice, Istanbul, Costa Rica, Venezuela and, of course, in Buenos Aires, at the Colón and Coliseum theaters.
Jairo is, undoubtedly, an Argentine ambassador wherever he goes.
Although he started his career in Europe, his Argentine essence stands out in each concert, which he proudly displays and which —he admits— nurtures him.
He has already sung with Roemmers Junto a la Cultura in almost every capital city in the country, and people usually ask, “When is he coming again?”
Juan Carlos Baglietto and Lito Vitale
Synergy is the word that best describes this masterful duet. Each of them, on their own, already had an important background on stages when...they got together...
To the magical strength of Juan Carlos Baglietto, an artist for whom it is impossible not to give it all in his songs, we have to add the unmistakable aesthetics of Lito Vitale, the owner of a unique creativity and virtuosity. Through the keyboard, his ideas become the most exquisite orchestra, where contrast and nuance are the permanent raw material. They simply move their audience throughout the concert.
It is the most important Chamber Ensemble in Argentina. There is nothing about this orchestra that the world does not already know. Endless applause and repeated encores - not always habitual in this kind of shows - are characteristic in the performances of the Camerata for Roemmers junto a la Cultura. This ensemble has already accompanied us in the following cities: the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Rosario, Paraná, Santa Fe, San Nicolás, Bahía Blanca, Neuquén, Corrientes, Tucumán, Mendoza, La Plata, Mar del Plata, San Juan, and Córdoba.
With his Ballet del Mercosur, he performed for Roemmers junto a la Cultura in Rosario, the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, La Plata, Mar del Plata, and Córdoba.
He delighted the audience with his piano in Rosario, Neuquén, San Juan, and Córdoba.
He illustrated our guests on different aspects of music, including all the musical periods, in Jujuy, Paraná, Santa Fe, Junín, San Nicolás, Bahía Blanca, Comodoro Rivadavia, Santiago del Estero, Chaco, and Corrientes.
Luis Landriscina is a unique narrator of the national tradition, unrivaled interpreter of the various accents characterizing the way of speaking and feeling of each province and community. Despite having retired from the stages, in the last three years he traveled throughout the country with Roemmers junto a la Cultura, and presented his show in Salta, Santa Fe, Paraná, Rosario, Río Cuarto, Córdoba, the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, Bahía Blanca, Neuquén, Mendoza, Corrientes, Tucumán, and Mar del Plata.
Mastery in the hands of a young man who represents us here and around the world; a 23-year-old pianist who, despite having all the future ahead, already has a past. Lavandera thrilled the audiences with his piano, within the framework of Roemmers junto a la Cultura, in the cities of Paraná, Santa Fe, Tucumán, Rosario, Neuquén, Córdoba, La Plata, Mar del Plata, and San Juan.
A remarkable guitarist, self-taught artist, renowned by his peers around the world as an Argentine ambassador of folklore and tango, owner of a virtuosity that also allows him to approach jazz and imbue many of his compositions with this local style. He already performed in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires in 2008, and in Rosario and Santa Fe in 2009.
This Argentine pianist living in the United States interprets “his own music.” Before his performances, he refers to the origin of each musical track and relates it to the nostalgia he feels for his country, the awakening of love, the fears and joys that inspired each of the notes that the audience immediately hears. Thus, he arouses a delight in the audience unknown until then as regards music interpreted and explained by its author, live. Flamingo already presented his repertoire for the cycle Roemmers junto a la Cultura in Mendoza, Salta, Jujuy and Junín.
This band makes tango arrangements of very popular songs by The Beatles, Beethoven, and many other composers. Tango Loco is made up of musicians that are far from being vulgar or simplistic when it comes to updating music with those nuances typical of Buenos Aires, well known melodies that live in everyone’s memory. With an impeccable chamber ensemble, these artists offer a top-level show acclaimed by the audience and which is in line with the shows offered by Roemmers junto a la Cultura.
Sponsored by Roemmers junto a la Cultura, Tango Loco performed at the opening act of the Argentine Congress of Gastroenterology and Digestive Endoscopy, held at the Sheraton Hotel in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires, in August 2008.
Peter McFarlane is a renowned choreographer. He recreated for us several scenes of universally famous films that charmed everybody without exception. Thirty people on stage managed to hypnotize an audience that could not believe what they were seeing. He performed in the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires in 2006.
St. Florian Boys’ Choir
This Austrian choir, with more than 1000 years of history and totally made up of boys, delighted the city of Rosario in 2004.
Symphonic Orchestra of Salta
This prestigious group performed exclusively for our guests when Roemmers junto a la Cultura was just beginning. The orchestra played at Casa de la Cultura in the Province of Salta and the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires in 2004.
Théâtre du Soleil
In September 2007, Laboratorios Roemmers, together with the French Embassy, the Alliance Française of Buenos Aires, the Government of the City of Buenos Aires and other sponsors, brought the prestigious company Théâtre du Soleil to Argentina for the first time.
One of the shows presented within the framework of the 6th International Festival of Buenos Aires of drama, dance, music, and visual arts took place exclusively for Laboratorios Roemmers’ guests.
From the extensive repertoire of this company, Les Ephémères was chosen for the South American tour. Love, hate, madness, fear, passion, heroism and memory were evoked in a unique way, never seen here before—instead of performing on stage, this troupe paraded in front of the audience with different portable platforms pushed by the actors themselves. Thus, the atmosphere varied rapidly in each act.
Once the show finished, Ariane Mnouchkine, emblematic director and founder of the troupe, shared a moment with all the guests and gently agreed to have pictures taken, together with the rest of the artists, with anyone who wished to do so.
It was an unforgettable night, which the guests who attended that evening even today refer to with gratitude.
