Choirs in residence

These are the three choirs in residence of the European Seminar for choral composers:

Giro Giro Canto Choir [Children choir]

The choir, which was formed for the European Seminar for composers, is made up of around forty children aged 7 to 12 years,  with the aim of disseminating choral culture and stimulating in children the desire to sing together and to participate in shared projects with other organisations in the area. A few members of the Choeur d'enfants, the propaedeutic section of the CantoLeggero Choir, also joined the group, made up of around thirty children aged 6 to 10 years who are approaching music through choral activity. A fair number of children come also from the courses promoted by the SFOM - School of Musical Training and Orientation, which devotes special attention to the 0-6 age group. 

CantoLeggero Choir [Youth choir]

Canto Leggero is the choir of the M.I. Viglino Foundation for Musical Culture, an organisation that promotes musical training in the region. Born in 2007, it is currently made up of around twenty young people aged between 11 and 20. Several concerts and prestigious collaborations have been organised in its fifteen years of activity, including pop singer Elisa and musicians Ray Lema and Bil AkaKora. The synergy with the SFOM, with which it has carried out numerous performances, is important: the Mbya project, an exchange with the Lyon Conservatory, the operina Tulla and Leandro. In 2013, the choir participated in the 1st Oropa Canta competition, obtaining 2nd prize in the youth choir category. In 2018, it won 1st prize at the F. Gaffurio National Competition in Quartiano and 3rd prize for the highest score with the piece Dirait-on by M. Lauridsen. He performed in Tallinn (Estonia) and Pécs (Hungary) as part of the Festival Europa Cantat.

Arcova Vocal Ensemble [mixed choir]

The Arcova Vocal Ensemble was founded by ARCOVA at the European Seminar for composers in summer 2014. The group is made up of young musicians from different regional choirs. The aim of the choir is to be an active part of the growth and enhancement of the important polyphonic choral repertoire. The ensemble has performed several concerts in Italy and abroad, from the Europa Cantat festival in Pécs (Hungary), to MiTO Settembre Musica, to the International Polyphonic Meeting City of Fano; it is also the workshop choir of the European Seminar for Composers. In 2016 it joined the project Officina Corale del Futuro, an initiative promoted by Feniarco to foster the birth and growth of regional youth choirs, and in 2021 the project La Musica di Dante, the Italian youth choirs at the court of the supreme poet together with 8 other regional choirs. Conducted over the years by Davide Benetti and Nicola Forlin, since September 2020 the artistic direction has passed to Caroline Voyat.
