Philharmonic Children’s Choir

The Philharmonic Children’s Choir came to being in May of 2014 as one of the most recent musical ensembles to come to the Bogota Philharmonic Orchestra. The choir has a 120-member base between children and youngsters taking part in the Educational Projects of the Bogota Philharmonic Orchestra within the framework of the project known as The Philharmonic at School and in the City.

The ground for this ensemble is choral singing for the promotion of values and artistic potentials. Each individual member learns music through vocal training and achieves the use of their voice as a musical instrument. This choir provides a basis towards excellence in the exploration and development of disciplined vocal and musical abilities within a friendly environment. The aim is to prepare students for an everyday life with a firm character that is tasteful, creative, and of high quality within a top-level musical framework.
