THE “GUIDO CHIGI SARACINI” CHOIR OF SIENA CATHEDRAL
Siena Cathedral’s new choir was formed in September 2016. The product of a partnership between the Opera della Metropolitana and the Accademia Musicale Chigiana, it is one of the city’s most important developments in the production and dissemination of music in recent years, offering an example of constructive cooperation between institutions eager to use this artistic initiative to make Siena a model for Italy and for Europe. The project aims to enrich the community’s cultural heritage through the creation of a permanent artistic complex occupying its rightful place at the very top in the widespread practice of performing the liturgical repertoire, combining a commitment of religious inspiration with the production of quality concerts. Siena Cathedral’s “Guido Chigi Saracini” Choir is conducted by Maestro Lorenzo Donati, a conductor of international renown who attended the Accademia Chigiana’s Composition Course as a student. The basic composition of the choir will consist in eight sopranos, eight contraltos, seven tenors and seven basses, all of proven experience.
