The president highlights the work of Isa Mari Puig and the musical team to develop essays and online classes
With this video dedicated to the great German composer musician Ludwing van Beethoven, the Orfeón Crevillentino inaugurates its new YouTube channel, in which they will influence new creations in the near future. The president of the entity emphasizes that “this year, when all scheduled actions were suspended, we have had to resort to technology to avoid face-to-face rehearsals and this video is the culmination of this new work methodology.” Sempere also highlights “the work done by the director of the Orfeón Crevillentino, Isa Mari Puig, and the musical team, not only with the video but throughout the year scheduling rehearsals and online classes.”
The new Orfeón Crevillentino was presented in June of last year at the Center Jove «Juan Antonio Cebrían» in Crevillent, under the presidency of Esperanza Sempere Congost, until then president of Coral Crevillentina. The entities that signed the choral union found it necessary to take the reins of this tradition with a new approach so that the singing activity can once again be the musical benchmark that it was in the past, uniting all the Crevillent fans.
For this reason, since the end of 2016 the collaborations between Coral Crevillentina, Orfeón Voces Crevillentinas and Coro Ruiz Gasch were resumed, and, in a more active way, they decided to recover the initiative to promote this future choral project, which involves the union of the three masses in a single entity that will be called Orfeón Crevillentino. The main purpose of this group is to preserve the history and antiquity of Crevillent’s choral singing and to create a more complete structure for the musical, vocal and choral growth of the orpheonists and therefore of the Orfeón Crevillentino itself.
