The choir "Voci in festa – Città di Mantova", founded in September 2008 by the will of the Cultural Association P. Pomponazzo in collaboration with the I.C. Mn1 "Luisa Levi", is prepared and directed by Maestro Marino Cavalca and is open to all schoolchildren and students of the schools of Mantua and Province.
The young choristers have performed in recent years in numerous concerts and performances.
In particular, in 2011 they accompanied the singer Elisa on her tour "Ivy 1 & 2" in the Social Theaters of Mantua, Ponchielli of Cremona, and Valli of Reggio Emilia. This last concert was recorded by a TV of national importance.
They sang the Anthem of Italy in the presence of the President of the Republic Giorgio Napolitano at the Teatro Bibiena, on the occasion of his visit to Mantua on 6 December. They inaugurated with their songs the renewed Piazza Martiri, and since 2012 the Christmas Albert that every year is donated by the city of Bressanone.
Also in 2012 they supported the populations affected by the earthquake with a concert performed in the earthquake camp of San Giacomo delle Segnate.
