A new community choir in Canberra established to celebrate the rich heritage of Spanish music - all welcome.
'Voces' is a mixed SATB a cappella choir specialising in all-Spanish repertoire; sung in Spanish. To be as inclusive as possible, proficiency in Spanish language is not a prerequisite as pronunciation and lyrics are workshopped during rehearsals for non-Spanish speakers.
The only prerequisite is to be able to sing in tune throughout your range, hence the audition.
Material spans the Andalucian tradition including original choral arrangements of contemporary Sevillanas, Coplas, Coro Flamenco and folk songs etc through to broader Spanish Romances, Sephardic, Latin American and Spanish Renaissance and other early music.
Rehearsals currently on Mondays 7.30-9pm at the Belconnen Arts Centre. Check the website for further information including how to join, membership fees, current rehearsal details and contact form: https://www.tomasflamenco.wixsite.com/voces
