The CERN Choir was founded in 1974 by Colin Taylor. Two times a year, the choir performs concerts in Geneva and the neighbouring French regions.
The club is open for all, even people external to CERN. The repertoire is varied: Bach, Britten, Duruflé, Dvorak, Fauré, Franck, Haendel, Haydn, Mozart, Palestrina, Penderecki, Purcell, Theodorakis, Rutter...
Since 1989 the choir has been under the direction of Gonzalo Martinez. After robust musical studies in his home town of Buenos Aires, Barcelona then at the Conservatoire of Geneva, he acquired a particular control of the singing, the composition and the direction of choir and orchestra.
