With “The glorious inheritance of yesterday” the renowned Mendoza choir will commemorate the 15 years of the European Grand Prix.

With the concert “The glorious inheritance of yesterday” —and on its 59th anniversary—the Mendoza University Choir (CUM) will commemorate 15 years of European Grand Prix. It was the first Latin American choir to win the highest choral competition worldwide. The appointment will be this Thursday the 30th, at 8:30 p.m., at the Independencia theater. There he will tour the works that catapulted the Mendoza choir to obtain the most important awards in its history.

This May 30 marks a new anniversary since the Mendoza University Choir, under the direction of Silvana Vallesi, made history by winning the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing, in Tours, France, in 2009. The road to the finish line was not easy. It was a series of years of detailed and uninterrupted work, both artistically and musically and, of course, a titanic effort to raise funds that would allow a group of more than 30 members to set foot on European soil. By obtaining this distinction, the Mendoza choir group established itself in the first Latin American choir to be awarded with such an award and, to date, remains the only one.

Previously, in 2008, CUM had obtained 1st Prize in its category as well as the Grand Prix at the 23rd Bela Bartok International Choir Competition, in Debrecen, Hungary, which qualified it to participate in the European Grand Prix of Tours each year. following.

Such important achievements set precedents in the history of the Latin American and Argentine choral world in general and in the cultural and artistic history of Mendoza in particular.

On May 12, the CUM celebrated 59 years of history since its founding, in 1965, by the work of the teacher Felipe Vallesi, alma mater of the organism that depends on the UNCUYO.
