This choir  was founded in January 2008 by Alfonso Elorriaga in order to create a mixed youth choir that promotes singing among adolescents as well as  the values ​​of school life. Since then, the choir has performed at several schools, churches and social centers around Spain. The choir has made several trips throughout Spain  and exchanges with other youth choirs. The choir has also participated in several competitions,  obtaining 15 awards, the last one to be recognized as a premium high quality choir all over the city of Madrid, besides to get other special educative awards from the National Board of Education from Spain.  The choir has been invited in several international Choir Festivals in Romania, China and France. Nowadays, there are two performing choirs within the project, the middle school one (13 to 17 years old) and the Young Adult Choir (18 to 25).
