Camerata Coral Universidad de Cantabria

Camerata Coral Universidad de CantabriaCamerata Coral Universidad de Cantabria from the University of Cantabria is a chamber choir of 25 people of all ages, who sing music from the Renaissance to the present day both « à capella » and accompanied.

Their programmes are devoted to sacred music, for example the music of the Bach family, Handel, Haydn and Spanish Baroque music. They have also recorded contemporary works, for example ‘Mère Prometeo’ by the Cantabrian composer, Juanjo Mier.

Camerata’s investigative approach means that they work with prestigious musicologists to revive Spain’s musical heritage which is still to be found in its cathedrals, libraries and monasteries.

Camerata Coral Universidad de Cantabria has collaborated with the Camerata Musicale de Bâle, the Baroque Orchestra of the Royal College of Music, Les Nations d’Amsterdam, Avantage Mvsica Antiqva de Madrid, l’Orchestre Baroque de Montauban, l’Orchestre de Chambre Arriaga de Bilbao, l’Orchestre Symphonique d’Asturies, l’Orchestre Symphonique de RTVE.

Under the direction of Raul Suarez Garcia, they have toured abroad in England, Belgium and Italy with programmes featuring the Spanish Baroque.
