SMCC 2014: Choral Exchange and Concert: San Marino Chamber Choir with the Escola de Música do Conservatório Nacional of Portugal, Lisboa, Saturday, April 5.

San Marino Chamber Choir will enjoy a Choral Exchange with the students of the National Conservatory of Portugal, during their Incantato Performance Tour to Spain and Portugal, on Saturday April 5th. The Choral Concert will take place at 3pm.

The Escola de Música do Conservatório Nacional - School of Music of the National Conservatory of Portugal - is based in the capital city Lisbon, hosting a regular program of concerts and masterclasses for the students and the citizens, to increase the musical and cultural level of the city.
The Escola de Música mission is to qualify students through a solid education in its multiple facets: humanistic, scientific, historical, ethical, ecological, aesthetic, artistic and musical; empowering them for a professional option as musicians.

The Coro Musaico - Musaico Choir, under the direction of Tiago Marques, will meet San Marino Chamber Choir for the choral exchange and Joint Concert that San Marino Chamber Choir and Musaico will present at the Conservatory Concert Hall at 3pm on Saturday April 5..
Coro Musaico runs this year a light music programme of choice, but their repertoire comprises all kinds of styles. Here you can see Musaico on a performance celebrating the Day of Song, under the direction and solo from Maestro Tiago Marques.

The Coro Musaico is one of the choirs under the Escola de Música do Conservatorio. Here you can watch the Orquestra de Câmara and the Coro Géral performing together Vivaldi's Gloria.

The creation of the Conservatory in Lisbon is directly linked to the action of Portuguese musician João Domingos Bomtempo (1775-1842), known primarily as a pianist and composer, but also as an excellent educator. Following the Liberal victory (1834), he gave substance to his plans to reform the teaching of music in Portugal.

The Royal Conservatory of Lisbon remained basically unchanged until 1901, with a major reform headed by Augusto Machado (1845-1924), Director of the School of Music from 1901 to 1910, who guided the Conservatory in the ways of modernity, updating the curricula and repertoires of various instruments. 

Currently, the School of Music of the National Conservatory is identified with the traditional Conservatory institution, remaining in the same building of Caetanos and continuing to be a major player in the Portuguese musical training.
