Chamber Choir

Director: Poire Vallvé

The Chamber Choir is an initiative that came up in the Choir of the UAB to dedicate some time to research in choral singing from the point of view of interpretation and creation of new repertoires.

The Chamber Choir aims to go into detail about the training of singers, both vocally and musically, and to increase their dedication and commitment compared to the other members of the choir in order to introduce them to choral conducting and provide them with a more professional standard.

The Chamber Choir will perform frequently both in institutional events and in concerts inside and outside the campus.

The group will consist of a maximum of 12 members. To be a member of the Chamber Choir it is necessary to do a level test and an interview with the director.
