The term 'promenade' (from the French promotes, means strolling) was first used in the 19th century, in London, to refer to the concerts carried out in public gardens, where visitors could enjoy live music as they walked about.

Since 2016, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation had adopted this idea shifting the usual Sunday concerts, previously performed in the entrance hall of the Museum and Library, to the galleries, allowing visitors to listen and enjoy live music throughout their visit.

Hence, between March and June, the public will be able to see Gulbenkian's comprehensive Portuguese modern art collection, accompanied by live music. The concerts will be carried out in the main exhibition hall of the Modern Collection.
