Escolania de Montserrat
Bernat Vivancos, musical director

The Escolania de Montserrat is one of the oldest music schools in Europe and is arguably the premiere boys’ choir in Spain. By the 13th century, a small group of boys were already serving in the Benedictine abbey and Sanctuary of Our Lady of Montserrat through the singing and playing of different musical instruments. Throughout the centuries, many remarkable composers and performers were spawned from the so-called Montserrat Music School. 

The choir is made up of more than 50 boys, ranging from 9 to 14 years old, who come from all across Catalonia. They have been conducted by Mstislav Rostropovich, Sir Neville Marriner, Salvador Mas, Michael Boder, Harry Bicket, Kirill Petrenko and Jordi Savall.
