The association “Polifonica Santa Barbara” was founded in 2011 by the will of some friends united by the passion for choral music and legally registered in 2013.
Directed by maestro Marco Sotgiu, the Polifonica, carries on a repertoire that ranges from ancient music in its sacred and profane value, as well as the traditional and popular Sardinian. He also engages in the Gregorian repertoire that he presents at the great and solemn religious celebrations and beyond.
The choir is composed of 13 elements that form a staff of sopranos, half sopranos, altos, tenors and basses.
