Camerata San Nicolás (Chamber Orchestra)

Born: 1992 - Zaragoza, Spain

The chamber orchestra, Camerata San Nicolás,, is an orchestra composed of children between 6 and 25 years playing with their parents. They are part of the education program and its director Professor for violin Carlos Escudero Moreno. Founded in 1992, the orchestra is named after the place where the first trials were held, the Iglesia de San Nicolás (Church of St. Nicholas), Zaragoza (Spain). The orchestra has given concerts throughout Aragon, participated in benefit concerts and working with several choirs

The main feature of this project is that children learn to play the violin along with their parents and thus can start learning at an early age (a student has started 18 months), then into the orchestra and finally exposed the work to the public, either in concerts or auditions. Workshops and excursions are also organised in order to visit beautiful and interesting places at once used to performing more intensive work, with rehearsals that become a concert in the visited village, which in many cases, is the only cultural event of the place during the year.

Of particular note is the collaboration with the Asociación Down de Huesca, which collaborates for a number of years, and forming the most precious percussion family.

Every year the orchestra is adding new members and others out of it to move to other musical areas. The age range is being 6 to 63 years old. Of the 11 members at the beginning the orchestra has now about 85. Not only violins are incorporated but other instruments and other students at their particular level and love of music are reflected in the musical rehearsals and performances.
