SMASH Association

SMASH Association is a non-profit organization established in Salamanca (Spain), whose main goal is to enrich culturally our society through contemporary classical music. Since 2006 it has become one of the most important specialized institutions in this area in Europe, due to the variety of activities and artistic projects hybridized with the classical music of nowadays.

Mission
