OUR MAIN GOAL

Before starting we would like to thank everyone who support us in this project touring to Europe to attend this sensational choir festival in September 2017,visiting Brussels, Lisbon and Paris.

WHO WE ARE

Homines Urbi is a vocal men ensemble founded 10 years ago. We are based in Caracas, Venezuela and from the start we focused in doing a different kind of musical repertoires beginning with sacred music, especially for easter time. Also we have a vast traditional worldwide musical repertoire but particularly our Venezuelan songs.

In the past four years we have been working in some projects in which we would like to highlight the completion of our first CD, FINALMENTE !!, also we are at the end of a Venezuelan tour called Sendas Pentagramadas de las Américas in which we have visited several cities and towns all over Venezuela for the last two years with songs from our American Continent.

In May 2015 we organized the third edition of “Festival de Voces Iguales” in Caracas. We had several choirs attending from different parts of Venezuela, 18 groups were participating in the tree days of the festival along multiple scenarios in our dear capital. Moreover, last December we organized a charity Christmas concert for “Fundación Cambalache de Sonrisas” in order to gather presents for children in public hospitals in Caracas, that as part of our social responsibility program with the community. Finally we are working in a sacred music project to set up and recorded a masterpiece masses from maestro Juan Bautista Plaza (1898-1965) which will be done by May 2018.

OUR PLAN TO GO TO EUROPE                                               SEPTEMBER 06-25/2017  

El Ensamble Vocal Homines Urbi had traveled through some Latin American countries in 2009, 2012 and 2013. Brasil, Colombia and Mexico has been the visited countries. Europe has become a dream not made so far!!! We have been invited to many festivals there but we haven’t got the chance to get there for different reasons and one principal has been, money.

Interkultur® and their program “On Stage” offers us the possibility in a period of 3 weeks to travel to tree mayor cities in Europe; Brussels, Lisbon and Paris. In that program we are scheduled to sing with other choir groups from different countries, and also participate in incredible workshops with well renowned maestros, thus share our work with all the participants and mostly with the audience.

En Mayo de 2015 organizamos en III Festival de Voces Iguales en Caracas. Contamos con la participación de 18 agrupaciones de todo el país quienes nos regalaron su trabajo en 3 días de conciertos en las principales salas de nuestra capital. De igual forma y como parte de nuestro trabajo de responsabilidad social, organizamos un concierto benéfico esta pasado Diciembre de 2016 a favor de la Fundación Cambalache de Sonrisas, con el propósito de recoger regalos para los niños enfermos en los hospitales públicos de Caracas.

Finalmente estamos trabajando en un proyecto de música sacra para montar y grabar parte del repertorio inédito de algunas misas del maestro Juan Bautista Plaza (1898-1965).

NUESTROS PLANES PARA IR A EUROPA                                                   Septiembre 06 al 25/2017

El Ensamble Vocal Homines Urbi ha viajado por buena parte del continente americano, Brasil, Colombia y México han sido los países visitados.

Europa ha sido un sueño no realizado hasta ahora!!!. Hemos sido invitados a muchos festivales y no hemos podido asistir por muchas complicaciones, la más importante, falta de dinero.

Interkultur y su programa "On Sage" nos ofrece la posibilidad en un período de tres semanas de visitar 3 ciudades; Bruselas, Lisboa y Paris. Allí compartiremos con otras agrupaciones corales y participaremos en clases magistrales con renombrados maestros del mundo coral. Igualmente tendríamos la oportunidad de mostrar tanto a las agrupaciones como al público asistente a los conciertos, este trabajo musical que con mucho esmero hemos montado para todo el mundo. 

 

 

Risks and challenges

This is our first project of this kind. Europe has become a major dream for us and probably for many in this search. We would like to point out that we are pretty short in terms of time in order to set up inscription, itineraries and so but also we know that our goal is reachable. We are going to pursue this goal until the end.
