Category Archives: Vocal Ensembles

Vocal ensembles can be made up of any of the usual voice types : soprano, mezzo, tenor, baritone, bass. The usual mixed ensemble is normally described as SATB (Soprano, Alto – more usually nowadays called mezzo, Tenor and Bass) see Opera Alba or Coro Alba. They may also be made up of all male voices, with tenors, baritones and basses, (see Scozzesi) or all women, with soprano I, soprano II and mezzo. They are usually accompanied by a pianist, but may also perform a cappella (unaccompanied).

Daniel Ciobanu has joined CMS!

Classical Musicians Scotland is delighted to welcome virtuosic pianist Daniel Ciobanu for bookings in Scotland.  Daniel became well-known for his style and panache in the piano repertoire while a student at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, and now has a busy international career.

Recently he performed for Pollok House Arts Society where audience comments included, “Thought Daniel’s concert was “pure magic .” Loved it, every last note!”     “It was one of the best concerts I have been to!  Thrilling!  Absolutely thrilling!”  Absolutely superb. An athletic performance with an understanding intellect behind it. I noticed Daniel beginning each half with a minute of devotion drawing us into his world of humility. No airs and graces. Refreshing.”  “truly sensational!!”  “truly memorable!”  “an outstanding concert”

Delighted to say he’s been invited back to give another recital at 5.30pm on Sunday 7 October 2018.  If you missed the last one, don’t miss this!
