From the joy and enthusiasm of a group of people who love polyphonic singing, in the premises of the Parish of St. Michael the Archangel of Monte Urano, a small choir was born, which quickly became more and more numerous. Initially directed by the teacher Lolita Sorbini, it officially debuted on May 8, 2012 with the aim of spreading choral music as well as promoting initiatives and events aimed at supporting the development of culture and sensitivity-artistic-musical in the area.
Currently the Choir “Dolce canto a Leo” is composed of forty-two elements and is directed by Maestro Stefania Cocco.
He often avails himself of the collaboration of Maestro Ugo Gironacci, organist and musicologist, maximiliam Agostini on keyboard and Ilaria Belletti on flute.
The main activity of the Choir is liturgical and is available to live more intensely the important moments of the community.
He has also participated in concerts, reviews and events with pieces from the classical choral repertoire, pieces of liturgical animation and songs by contemporary songwriters. Bringing back into vogue the city’s choral tradition that already in 1925 could boast, in addition to the prestigious and more than centenary local band, also a choral group, then reconstituted also after the Second World War with a repertoire also sacred (focused above all on Perosi), is also a source of pride.
