Highly experienced teachers who develop, with collective spirit, an artistic, musical and playful activity.
Association Collegium Musicum La Rioja arose from the collaborative work between musical and educational institutions in the academic year 2006-2007.
Following the call launched by the University of La Rioja for the creation of a university choir, a new challenge was posed: offering instrumentalists to take part. Soon students from the university, the music conservatories of La Rioja and the music schools of Logroño, Calahorra and Haro joined.
Promoters of Collegium Musicum La Rioja decided to join together with the aim of encouraging the exchange of musical ideas and experiences among teachers and students. Its musical director, Alfredo Rodríguez Ugalde, teacher at the Professional Music Conservatory of La Rioja, together with teachers of the University of La Rioja and of the three conservatories in La Rioja, devised an open training space where they could promote the musical practice in group.
According to their outstanding didactic philosophy, members work to develop, with collective spirit, an artistic, musical and fun activity which promotes values such as solidarity, coexistence, teamwork and individual effort of young people. In spite of its youth, they have managed to form an authentic symphonic orchestra with a perfect balance among its sections.
We are left to meet the expectations created, correspond with enthusiasm and dedication, and try to surpass the success of previous editions
