A Historical formation in the scenario of Venetian chorality, and surely one of the most long-lived.
Its constitution dates back to 1975 and already in the following year the staff exceeded one hundred singers, mostly young students of primary and secondary schools in Venice and the surrounding area. The growing enthusiasm of the beginnings prompted Maestro Davide Liani and his assistant Maestro Mara Bortolato, to lead the chorus towards challenging repertoires and ambitious projects. The philosophy of the “open choir” has led in recent years to the realization of important musical projects little known to the general public, such as “Chichester Psalms” by L. Bernstein; the “Mass of Great” by F. Lizst; the “Cantata St. Nicholas” by B. Britten and recently the “Budavari Te Deum” by Z. Kodàly, performed on the occasion of the celebrations for the 40 years of activity of the Association.
In the current training the choir has undertaken new paths that see her engaged in performances of contemporary compositions, some of them expressly composed for her. Increasingly we are directed towards choices that bring the public to approach with little known executions, so as to rediscover together sounds and work beyond time. It is our small contribution to making culture in a world that struggles to recognize itself.
The Chorus Association Cantori Veneziani, of which the Cantori Veneziani are a part, includes three other realities: an introductory course for children from 3 to 6 years, a reservoir for other formations, the Choir of the Little Venetian Singers, a well-known training for the his constant collaboration with the Teatro “La Fenice” in Venice and the Senior Choir, a group of excellence, specialized in baroque music and contemporary performances.
The artistic direction and the orchestration are curated by the Master Diana D’Alessio and by a staff of collaborators specialized in the various sectors of intervention.
The Venice Orchestra Laboratory – L.O.V. – was founded in 2012 by the idea of its permanent Conductor, Paola Fasolo, with the aim of contributing to the development of new and new musical realities in Venice and to transmit the enthusiasm for making young music to young musicians, harmonizing their individual experiences and individual skills.
The L.O.V. began the musical laboratory experience, thanks to the logistic support of the Municipality of Venice, who believed in this initiative and offered hospitality at the Teatro di Villa Groggia and subsequently the Spazio CZ95 at Giudecca, Venice.
Over the years the Orchestra has focused on the search for new sounds and acoustic experiences, which begins to establish itself thanks to the performances in various events in Venice: Palazzo delle Prigioni, Sale Apollinee of La Fenice Theater, Church of S.M. della Pietà, Great School of San Giovanni Evangelista, Scuola Grande di San Teodoro. Since 2015 there have been auditions for the role of soloist, which offer the opportunity to perform in several concerts in prestigious halls. In the same year, the scholarship awarded to the young musicians of the Venice Orchestra Laboratory, offered by the “Amici del LOV” and named after Fulvia Amigoni (1912-2003) violinist graduated in Padua under the guidance of Maestro Ettore Bonelli . On 22nd January 2017 he inaugurated the “Musikàmera” chamber music season at the Teatro La Fenice in Venice.
