classical concerts

Our popular concerts are held twice a year, at the end of May and at Christmas time: one performance is always in Marbella and the other somewhere in the Fuengirola/Benalmádena/Mijas area.

As our concerts are mainly given in churches this, to a great extent, determines our repertoire. Since May 2011 the “Camerata Singers” of Sotogrande have joined us for the Spring Concerts and we have performed together repertoire such as Haydn’s “Missa Cellensis” and “Te Deum”, Puccini’s Messa di Gloria, Gounod’s Messe Solonnelle de Sainte Cecile and the Te Deum and Mass in Bb by Hummel.

Other recent performances have included large-scale choral music from the Baroque such as Vivaldi’s “Gloria”, excerpts from J. S. Bach’s cantatas and “Christmas Oratorio” and Handel’s “Messiah”. Music from the Classical period has included Mozart’s “Requiem” and “Coronation” Mass and we have performed Romantic music such as Mendelssohn’s “Hymn of Praise” and several of his Psalm settings. In 2014 we performed John Rutter’s “Magnificat”.

We also offer a platform for exceptional instrumental soloists (many of whom live in this region) to feature in the concerts; in recent years these have included Haydn’s Trumpet and Cello Concertos, Mozart Violin Concerto, Bruch’s Violin Concerto and Handel’s Harp Concerto.

ENGAGEMENTS

We are also available to sing and play at other events, such as celebratory masses, weddings, baptisms and funerals.

Previous engagements include:

in 2017 we participated in the inaugural concert of the first “Salida del Sol”  Festival of Music in the Hotel IPV Palace & Spa in Fuengirola.

in 2016 we were asked by the Encarnación church in Marbella to sing in a very special Mass on the 19th November for the Brotherhood of San Lazaro. 

we took part in the “Pregón” of the Holy week in Fuengirola and for many years we have taken part in the International Service of Carols and Lessons in Marbella and San Pedro.

annual benefit concert

Over the years we have given concerts in aid of different charities.  In 1995 Collegium Musicum and Concordia came together when Princess Marie Louise of Prussia, President of Concordia, invited Collegium Musicum to give a benefit concert in aid of Concordia. This has turned into a very successful annual event which takes place every May at the Incarnation Church in the Old Town of Marbella. We are always on the lookout for Sponsors for this great event.
