The choral group MUSICALMENTE INSIEME was born as a voluntary association in San Biagio (Municipality of Bagnolo San Vito) in 2007, under the direction of Maestro Lorenzo Valente, pianist and teacher in the Middle School of Borgoforte. The mixed voice choir, composed of about 20 people including sopranos, mezzo sopranos, altos, tenors and basses, is often accompanied by a group of musicians (including G. Cordioli, V. Orlandi – guitar and electric bass; A. Giavazzi – flute, M. Lodi Rizzini – violin). The formation has performed in numerous events and anniversaries: from Christmas concerts, to exhibitions in historic buildings, from twinning between choirs, to civil and religious festivals. The group has adopted a rainbow as its symbol to represent its vocal and repertoire variety. The purpose of the association is to spread musical knowledge through socialization, sharing and inclusion. To pursue this ambitious goal, the Choir has always performed not only in theaters and squares, but also in parishes, nursing homes, schools, etc.
