Every summer, during the month of July, the church Santa Maria la Major de Prades hosts a music festival devoted primarily to chamber music and jazz. The festival includes, in addition to excellent concerts, a clarinet course of international renown and performances by advanced students. Noteworthy among jazz artists who have participated in the festival in the past are Llibert Fortuny and Manel Camp.
On the last day a fun vermouth concert is held in the main square of the town in front of the church.
The place where the concerts are held, in addition to having excellent acoustics, is a beautiful Gothic construction with a Renaissance façade made of the red stone characteristic of the region.
