DIVISI CHILDRENS’ CHOIR (Spain)
The choir DIVISI Childrens’ Choir was created in 1993 in Valencia (Spain), under the support of the DIVISI Music School, an institution dedicated to music teaching to children from 3 years old.
Currently the group is formed by a hundred boys and girls, «friends of music», most of them sharing the choral activities with music theory and playing instruments.
The DIVISI Childrens’ Choir group is organised by age, currently in three working groups among which Quavers is the section including the children aged from 12 to 18.
“Quavers” has performed concerts all over Spain and other countries like France, Portugal, Romania, Italy, Taiwan, Switzerland, Macedonia, Hungary and Austria, among others.
All the components of DIVISI, apart from singing also study some musical instrument, which allows them to participate in accompanying the songs with arrangements prepared by their conductors.
Their choral work includes a wide range of scores, from the classical polyphonic compositions to movies soundtracks, musical theatre and popular songs.
The current master conductor of the Choir is Professor Jose Vicente De Sousa.
