Director: Poire Vallvé

The UAB Choir was born in the Faculty of Medicine in 1982, when a group of students and teachers took the initiative to create a choir under the direction of Baltasar Plans. Since then, the Choir has had a very close and active participation in the daily life of the University.

The repertoire throughout his career has been very wide and varied and ranges from the Renaissance to contemporary music. The dedication and dedication of the singers is high and, apart from rehearsal hours, they perform many performances throughout the year (both inside and outside the UAB) and usually participate in university choir meetings.

To join the Choir, you need to do an entrance test and a previous interview with the director.
