CORO DE LA UNIVERSIDAD POLITECNICA DE MADRID

 

The Choir of the Polytechnic University of Madrid (UPM) was created more than 30 years ago. It is made up my more than 100 mixed voices most of them linked to our University. Over the years, the Choir has interpreted most major choral works of religious and profane music of Europe and Latin America, as well as folk music from the world over.

 

The Choir has been invited to perform at concert halls in UK, France, Italy, Portugal, Russia (Moscow and St. Petersburg), Austria (Vienna and Salzburg), Turkey (Istanbul and Aspendos), with assorted programmes of Spanish and world music.

 

Among the master pieces of choral music the UPM Choir has performed, mention should be given to G.F. Haendel’s Messiah, Judas Maccabeaus, Dixit Dominus; A. Honegger’s Une Cantate de Nöel; J. Haydn’s Creation; J.S. Bach’s Magnificat , F. Mendelssohn’s Paulus y Lobgesang, Brahms’s German Requiem and Schicksalslied, as well as Masses by Bach, Mozart, Dvorak, Schubert, and Requiem Masses by Mozart, Cherubini, Fauré; Stabat Mater by Rheinberger and Dvorak, A. Vivaldi and F. Poulenc’s Gloria, etc.

 

Recent and forthcoming highlights of our Choir include a concert at Vienna’s Musikverein, last May 2013, and another one at Geneva’s Victoria Hall on November 8, 2014
