Corazón is an auditioned choir of 62 singers from Nelson, B.C. The singers range in age from 15 to 22.
True to its name (“Corazón” means “heart” in Spanish), the group sings from the heart and has in turn won the hearts of many Canadian audiences in the 14 years since it began. These talented and motivated singers have gained a reputation for their vibrant presence and eclectic repertoire. In 2009, Nelson City Council named Corazón the town’s official cultural ambassador.
The goal of Corazón’s singers is to gain a deeper understanding of themselves and others by experiencing music from many cultures in many languages. The ensemble feels that by exploration in rehearsal, and presentation in concert, we are all, singers and listeners alike, drawn together to embrace our similarities and share in the celebration of our differences.
