Choirs in residence

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

Giro Giro Canto Choir [Children choir] and Mazì Ensemble (youth female choir)
choir conductor during the seminar: Luigina Stevenin, Giulia Giovinazzo, Letizia Iacopetti, Carol Vaudan

The choir Giro Giro Canto is made up of around forty children and young people aged 7 to 12, which was formed during the composition seminar with the aim of disseminating choral culture and stimulating in young people the desire to sing together and participate in shared projects with other organisations in the area. 
Mazì Ensemble was founded in 2023 by a group of girls who grew up together in the Canto Leggero choir. Their passion for choral singing and, above all, the emotional bond consolidated over the years led them to come together with the intention of sharing new experiences and seeking new inspirations to sing together. The name Mazì, which means 'together' in Greek, is taken from this. All the members of the ensemble take an active part in the group's life: from choosing the songs to sing to managing and conducting rehearsals and practical matters. The repertoires reflect their sensitivity to current topics such as the environment, traditions and social issues. As part of a common growth path, many of the ensemble members are training with courses in choir conducting and choral training. Although recently formed, the group has several concerts planned for autumn 2024.

Arcova Vocal Ensemble [mixed choir]
choir conductor during the seminar: Nicola Forlin

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.
