Rapsodia

Rapsodia is a group of young Uruguayan artists devoted to explore and expand the horizons of choral singing. Driven by their passion for sharing music, they have developed their own stage identity, which is characterised by a warm interaction with the audience and a combination with other artistic disciplines like dancing and acting.

Their repertoire encompasses academic and popular choral music, including major pieces of popular Uruguayan music previously unexplored in the genre.
In the last few years their original stamp rendered a spot in the Uruguayan music scene. Rapsodia has often been invited to partake in shows and events next to very well-known artists.

    Coro Rapsodia was born in 2011, formed by a small group of young musicians and music students keen to explore different forms of vocal expression, both popular and academic. Consisting of 55 members, the choir is directed by Rodrigo Faguaga, who is responsible for a repertoire which includes pieces of very diverse origins and gives shape to an artistic space which fosters choral activity with a clearly defined profile which aims at combining good technique and warm stage presence.

    The shows are conformed by well-defined blocks which feature different national and regional music genres ranging from Candombe and Tango to Rock, going through popular Brazilian music, Cuban Son, and more recently, in their latest concerts, Rapsodia presented a North American repertoire which included pieces by contemporary US composers.

    Ever since its creation, Coro Rapsodia has participated in several events and choir festivals in Uruguay, Brazil, Peru and Argentina. In 2016 Rapsodia was chosen by The Rolling Stones to accompany the band in the song You Can’t Always Get What You Want. It was an impeccable performance which had great repercussion in the local press. Furthermore, the choir was invited by Jorge Nasser to participate in four songs during the show “Nasser 3.0”, in which said artist commemorated 30 years of musical career together with other well known musicians. In 2015 the choir also performed at the 17th International Cusco Choir Festival, in Peru, after giving an exciting concert at the Nelly Goitiño SODRE Theatre in Montevideo, which sold out. In 2016, the choir filled the Teatro Solís, where they gave a concert to celebrate their first 5 years of life along with great guest artists such as Carmen Pi, Jorge Dameseaux, Latasónica, and Jorge Nasser. In September 2017 Rapsodia took part in the Corearte Festival in Córdoba, Argentina, performing at all the concerts of the festival as well as participating in workshops dictated by Venezuelan Choir Director María Guinand.

“Rapsodia al Sur” - May/July 2017

Towards the end of 2016, we applied for funds before the Ministry of Education (MEC), to take our show, as well as workshops on singing and physical sensitization to different places in our country. We were selected and the following year the choir visited Carmelo, Cerrillos and San José. It was awesome to be received with such warmth and we hope to be back soon!

“Rapsodia 5 años” - Teatro Solís - November 2016

To celebrate our first 5 years of life, we wanted to do a complete show on the most beautiful and iconic stage in our country. Jorge Nasser and Carmen Pi sang with us, we were directed by Jorge Dameseaux, Latasónica took part in the percussion, as Vozarrón el Gritón did with rap, Exhibidos did some dancing, and we were presented by Emilio Machado. All these artists, the technicians and the 1100 people who filled up the theatre celebrated with in an unforgettable night.

The Rolling Stones - Olé Tour, Uruguay - February 2016

The day that our craziest teen fantasy didn’t even scratch the heels of reality. The day that the biggest Rock band in History invited us to sing one of their songs along with them, there, on stage. Crowded Centenary Stadium. 50.000 people shouting at a stage in absolute darkness. Rapsodia intones the intro to “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”… Lights on and the Stones take the spotlight. The world crumbles.

Cusco International Choir Festival, Peru - October 2015

Rapsodia takes their first flight to the magical land of the Incas. We were honoured to share stage with great choirs from Peru, Colombia, and Ecuador during 5 intense days. We were also invited to give workshops on Candombe and choral singing at schools and music institutes, which kindled the flame of many projects to come. We brought back many friends, countless unbelievable landscapes in our retina and even some came back with a funny accent.
