Musica Vitale is a professional ensemble presenting a cappella chamber works of Western European and Slavic origin from the 19th and 20th centuries. This ensembles’ mission is to revive and rediscover neglected repertoire from the Romantic and post-Romantic era, maintaining the highest artistic standards, preserving the heritage of vocal chamber music and bringing enrichment to the community through public performances.
Vitale- or vital, of life- translates into the choices of the ensemble’s repertoire with emphasis on the works of Romantic and Contemporary periods of Music History, emotionally open and charged with expression.
This ensemble of the finest San Diego singers offers an audible feast of choral colors and timbres; equally successful in producing sound of delicacy and finesse as that of Robert Schumann’s ‘Romanzen und Balladen’ and richness and warmth of Sergey Rachmaninov’s Vespers.
Musica Vitale has been bringing music to life since 2005, when a group of professional singers from the San Diego Opera Chorus and Sacred Heart Church came together to perform at a benefit concert for the victims of Hurricane Katrina in November of 2005. At this concert the group revealed its unique potential and Musica Vitale was born.
During its five years of exceptional music making, the group became one of the premier ensembles in the county and has won the hearts of large San Diego following.
