Coro de Cámara Oretania
"Oretania" Chamber Choir
Since its foundation in 1998, the “Oretania” Chamber Choir has established itself as one of the most important musical bets within the cultural scene of Castilla - La Mancha. A project that arose from the illusion of some young people from La Mancha and that today has become a mature and consolidated reality with a vision of the future in search of constant renewal, improvement and development.
Throughout these more than 20 years ""Oretania"" has performed throughout the Spanish geography, participating in musical cycles of great importance, such as the Benicassim Sacred Music Festival, the International Polyphonic Days of Ávila, the XXXV ""Arandino Polyphonic Autumn ""Or the XXXII"" City of Torrevieja International Meeting, offering multiple concerts both a cappella and accompanied by orchestra. Among the projects with an orchestra, it is worth highlighting the interpretation of Fauré's Requiem, Häendel's Messiah, Bach's Christmas Oratorios and Mahler's Symphony No. 2. Also noteworthy are his different collaborations in performances and record productions of various kinds (he has recently recorded an album with the band Against Myself), which shows the wide variety of registers that the choir has and its dominance over styles and different times such as renaissance, contemporary music, folklore, modern music, soundtracks, rock, etc ...
The year 2008 represents a turning point in the group's choral activity since, from that date on, Oretania also bets on its competitive potential. That same year he obtained the first prize at the International Music Tournament in Verona (Italy). Since then, it has accumulated fourteen more national awards (Avilés, Cocentaina, Rojales, Ejea de los Caballeros, Burgos, Villanueva de la Serena ...), as well as the valuable awards obtained (6 medals during the entire competition phase) in the prestigious international choral competition from Gorizia (Italy), and his most recent participation in the international competition of Spittal an der Drau (Austria) in 2019.
