A Cappella Choir

  The A Cappella Choir was founded on September 1st 1999 to basically perform non-operatic works of the standard choir repertoire.

  The real serious work of the choir started when Ms. Maya Gvineria was engaged as Choir Master in September 2000. Her intensive work with the Choir has led to a much higher artistic level.

  The Choir was put under the Artistic Supervision of Maestro Ahmed El Saedi to play an integral role to the Cairo Symphony Orchestra, performing masterpieces of both sacred and secular music. For the past seasons, A Cappella Choir has participated with the Cairo Symphony Orchestra in the interpretation of great masterpieces:
Handel’s “Messiah, Haydn's Creation, Mozart’s ‘Requiem”, Verdi’s ‘Requiem”, Brahms’ “A German Requiem”, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and “Missa Solemnis”, Mahler’s Second Symphony "Resurrection", Dvořák's “Stabat Mater”,Prokofiev "Alexander Nevsky" etc..
