The conductor and vocal director of this project is Rui Baeta, a renowned Portuguese baritone, who joins the Orquestra Clássica do Sul for this challenging initiative. Expecting that the OCS Choir project will have a "very inspiring development path", Rui Baeta is preparing himself to direct a mixed choir, with female and male voices, who will interpret choir and orchestral repertoires in concerts during the OCS artistic seasons.
In addition to his tasks with the OCS Choir, Rui Baeta will also be available for a limited number of individual lyric singing classes.
Although not intended to become a professional ensemble, the OCS Choir will be devoted to the interpretation of a large repertoire signed by great composers. The OCS Choir project is open to participants of 18 years old or over, with or without choral singing experience.
