A regular choral activity promotes the harmonic sensibility of the hearing and develops autonomy, enabling the chorister to keep his melodic line independently from the other voices.
The choral practice is an intense musical experience as the choir grows technically as a group. It is also a fundamental skill for every musician (and human being). At the choir, students read scores and write their own annotations according to the conductor’s instructions.
There are many types of choirs, varying in dimension and number of voices. There are symphonic choirs which can reach hundreds of choristers, and there are choirs of 16 people.
