The Torrevieja Municipal School of Choral Singing was founded in 2002. Since then, hundreds of children and young people have been trained, many of whom have subsequently dedicated themselves to music professionally and, have become singers including Lucía España, winner of the TV talent show ‘The Voice Kids’, Opera singer, Nuria Maddaloni and the chart topping pop singer, Nathy Peluso.
At the school, students will receive solid musical training focused on choral singing, with sessions on vocal technique and musical language.
