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.
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.
providing music at wedding services. The latest one was in 2018 where we assisted with the music during a wedding service in the Encarnacion Church in Marbella.

Our next concerts with music by Beethoven and Mozart will be in Fuengirola on Sunday, May 24th and on Tuesday the 26th we will give a Benefit concert for the charity CONCORDIA in Marbella.
The Choir and Orchestra ‘COLLEGIUM MUSICUM COSTA DEL SOL’ and the Chamber Choir CAMERATA of SOTOGRANDE will be presenting a very special concert to celebrate the 250th anniversary of the birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven.
We are delighted to welcome back violinist Geoffrey Silver, who will play Beethoven’s Violin Concert with the orchestra. The orchestra will then accompany the choirs and 4 soloists to perform Mozart’s Missa Solemnis in C, KV139. This Mass was written by the child prodigy when he was only 12 years old as a commission for the inauguration of an orphanage in Vienna. Mozart himself conducted the performance of the Mass, known as the “Waisenhausmesse” – the Orphanage Mass.
There will be 2 concerts: the first in Fuengirola on May 24th in the Hotel IPV Palace & Spa in Fuengirola (km 207) at 20.00h. Tickets cost €12 (free entry for under 16’s) and are available from the hotel, Nicholson’s Jewellers (nr. Plaza Constitución), from members of Collegium Musicum and on sale on the night. Call 952 775492 or 686 277 272 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
The second concert is on Tuesday, May 26h at 21.30 in the Church of the Encarnación in Marbella Old Town. This is our yearly Benefit Concert for the local AIDS Charity, Concordia; entrance is free, but it is hoped that the audience will leave a generous donation for the charity.

and Collegium Musicum Concerts
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.
Concordia, the Anti-Aids Association, is a charity which was founded in 1994 on the Costa del Sol to help sufferers infected with AIDS who need specialised service and attention. In April 1997 Concordia opened its Day Center in San Pedro de Alcántara. The center takes care of the complete treatment of those affected by Aids, including their families and friends.
