trayectoria-01.jpg

1989

Voxalba is born (initially directed by Lluís Vilamajor)

 Our bio

Voxalba was founded in 1989 by Lluís Vilamajó and was then directed briefly by Xavier Puig and Xavier Sans, until in 1999 Elisenda Carrasco took on the role of director. Since then they have become recognised as a female ensemble of exceptional artistic and vocal quality. The reduced number of singers allows for such versatility to truly explore different vocal colours and timbres, creating a wide variety of textures according to the repertoire being performed.

Voxalba’s constant desire to learn and evolve has lead them to work intensively with internationally renowned directors and composers such as the Venezuelan director Maria Guinand, the composer Alberto Grau, the Basque director and composer Javier Busto, the director Brady Allred, the prestigious Hungrian directors Zsuszánna Mindszenty and Dénes Szabó, the British singer, director and composer Bob Chilcott and, more recently, the Basque composer Eva Ugalde and the Basque director Basilio Astúlez, amongst many others.

In 2009, they released their first CD to commemorate their 20th anniversary, and in 2015, another for their 25th anniversary.

Among their many accolades is second prize at the 2007 National Competition of Christmas music in Rojales, Spain, 2nd prize at the Malgrat de Mar Choral Music Competition in 2008 and second prize at the 2009 International Music and Dance Festival in Cantonigrós.

They perform regularly all over Catalonia and Spain, of which concerts at the Palau de la Música Catalana and the Barcelona Auditori are worthy of note, as well as their collaborations in 2015-2016 with the Barcelona Symphonic Orchestra, the National Orchestra of Catalonia and Barcelona Municipal Orchestra, directed by Pablo González and Henrie Adams respectively. In 2016 they also formed part of the Female Symphonic Choir of Catalonia, directed by Xavier Pastrana.

Internationally, they have participated in choral exchanges, workshops and concert tours in Venezuela (2005), Hungary (2009), Turkey (2010) and France (2015).

Each experience is integrated and assimilated into Voxalba’s repertoire, adding to the versatility and diversity of this unique choir.
