The choir has performed and produced children’s operas, school and family concerts, musicals, concerts with choreographies and dramaturgy, and productions which aim to present vocal music in an original and exciting way. Cor Infantil Amics de la Unió has been choosen as one of the 24 best choirs in the world for the World Simposium on Choral Music 2017 and it will participate in the Taipei International Choral Festival this summer of the 2017.
Since its foundation, the choir has been conducted by Josep Vila i Jover , and has also worked with renowned conductors such as Christian Grube, Francesc Guillén, Òscar Boada, Manel Valdivieso, José Luis Basso, Antoni Ros Marbà, Pablo González and Jordi Savall, among others. All children in the choir take voice lessons with teachers Maria Illa, Alba Ballús, Júlia Sesé and Lahrs Ishdal.
