What do we wish?
Voxalba commemorates a quarter of a century since its creation. Through all this year we have been celebrating the anniversary with different concerts and activities and, to culminate it, we want to record a CD to collect the work done and to pay tribute to the job done during these twenty-five years.
The CD we are going to record will rememorize characteristic works of the choral world and of our group. Songs from everywhere and of the most diverse peculiarities could be listened to: sacred, popular, 20th century music, etc. composed by authors like Sergei Rachmaninov, György Orbán, Javi Busto, Alberto Grau, Eric Whitacre and Bob Chilcott and furthermore the Agnus Dei of the recognised composer Miklós Kocsár, that he has written expressly for us as an anniversary gift!
If you want to enjoy a taste of the CD’s repertoire, we hope you can accompany us in the 25th anniversary commemorative concert, on the 13th December, at the Basilica of Santa Maria del Pi.
In this concert we will also have the collaboration of other protagonists of the choir: the first conductors Lluís Vilamajó, Xavier Puig and Xavier Sans, and the singers that have been with us before. Our beloved pianist Josep Surinyac, who has accompanied us in innumerable occasions, will not miss the appointment and will also be with us at the concert and on the CD’s recording.
In Voxalba we have a thrilling project and we could only make it possible thanks to your collaboration. We want to approach our music to you all!
To what will your contributions be destined?
For the celebration of the 25th anniversary we have thought that it was the moment to record a new CD that could spread the last works of the formation. Moreover, we want to take advantage of the occasion by making a special re-edition of the old CD. All the contributions received through this campaign will be destined to:
the recording and edition
the renting of the recording space
the piano renting
the pianist fees
the sending of rewards (if necessary)
the re-edition of the old CD
If the contributions surpass the necessary amount to carry out this project, we will use them to update our Web portal.
Will you help us to make it possible?
For this micro-partnership we have created different kinds of rewards. From the one hand, those consisting in seats for the special presentation of the CD; from the other, those offering musical and promotional objects of the choir; and finally other more philanthropic rewards, for people that would like to help us for the love of art and music.
Look at the different options, choose and select, you will surely find the pack that most interests you!
ATTENTION! Do not forget the campaign “Qui No Corre Vola”! where we offer the possibility to have reserved seats to the best places for the concert of the 25th anniversary (just until the 13th December).
On Saturday, 13th December, we will celebrate the 25th anniversary with anybody that will like to be with us in the concert. It’s a special event where we will show the pieces protagonists of the CD.
The recording will be done on a weekend at the end of February, with a specialized technical team and in a place chosen for the occasion.
Once we have finished the CD, at the beginning of March, we will present it and we will give the rewards. It will be an act in Barcelona, with a date still unfixed, in which we will celebrate with everybody that has helped to carry out the project, where there will be music and all our thankfulness for having been a part of it.
