The Choir, born in the homonymous Parish of San Michele Arcangelo, in Casa Santa Erice, animates the festive Mass, under the direction of Prof. Rosella Messina Parisi.
He has participated in numerous Reviews of Singing in the Liturgy in Palermo and Trapani and has performed in different realities (Amici della Musica, A.V.The.S., Lyons, Rotary…) and ecclesial environments.
Over the years the Choir has availed itself of the direction of dr. Ettore di Santeodoro, of Maestro Maurizio Casciola, of the unforgettable Maestro Giancarlo Bini.
With Maestro Bini, in June 2000, he ranked third in the I National Competition of Porto Empedocle, also winning the special prize for the best performance of the obligatory piece.
In 2003 he recorded on CD the music for choir and orchestra of the Dedication of San Vito, composed by Maestro Giancarlo Bini and in 2004 he participated in the Pope’s Audience and animated the liturgy at Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome.
In 2006 he held a Concert of Byzantine Music at Palazzo Adriano and in the same year he recorded the CD “Illumina la via” with Christmas carols and poems by S. Ecc. Rev.ma Francesco Micciché, Bishop Emeritus of Trapani.
He has repeatedly collaborated with the Choir and Orchestra of the Conservatory “A. Scontrino” of Trapani for the performance of Carmina Burana by Carl Orff, the Christmas Oratorio by Camille Saint-Saëns and various concerts.
From 1998 to 2011 the Choir animated in the Cathedral of Trapani the solemn pontificals of the Bishop, Mons. Francesco Micciché, constituting the essential nucleus of the Episcopal Chapel “Alma Mater”, directed by Maestro Bini.
For some years now, as a sign of gratitude and esteem towards Maestro Bini, the Choir has added the name of the Maestro to the original name.
Currently some members of the group are part of the diocesan choir “Virgo drepanensis”, which animates the pontificals of the Bishop, H. Exc. Rev.ma Mgr. Pietro Maria Fragnelli, and performs in concerts in the Diocese.
Since 2009 the Choir has been expertly directed by Maestro Giuseppe Crapisi, who, despite the distance, follows him with sincere friendship and great professionalism.
