The idea of the Choral Academy comes from the need to have in our region a quality pole that can develop the topics related to the training of those who approach the choral world in all its aspects:
singing, conducting, composing, management, school training.
In the past, AERCO has started training courses both locally and centrally, focusing above all on choral literacy (in the single provinces), on some specialization masters and on some courses for the training of school staff who will then have to start choirs in schools.
Finally, the presence of a strong interest in Gregorian Chant should also be mentioned, thanks to the presence of specialized teachers in the sector who disseminated it through seminars and masterclasses. There is so much to include, as part of the AERCO Choral Academy, a permanent Gregorian Chant School.
Parallel to the Gregorian Chant courses, AERCO has established the Schola Gregoriana ‘Ecce’ which aims to sing liturgies, concerts and carry out scientific research.
