The Choirs:

The St-Michel Choir is a choir composed of young people from 15 to 25 years old, and is affiliated to the eponymous college from Fribourg. 30 years of many successes: CD recordings, interpretations of famous pieces of the classical choir repertory (Laudi de Suter, Mozart Requiem, St-Nicolas Cantate from Britten, Crisisimi from Jephté, Didion and Enée from Purcell), competitions and travels to many countries (Israel, France, Spain, Italy, Romania, Belgium, Russia). The thirst of discovery, exigence, eclecticism, motivation and friendship are fundamental values of the St-Michel Choir.

Diverticantus is an choir composed exclusively of men, funded in 2020 by ex-singers from the St-Michel Choir. Since its foundation, a large number of singers have joined its rank from multiple horizons. Even though its repertory is constituted mainly from a capella music, the group is not bound to any musical style or century.

Fa Mi Cantar, is women, singing and friendship. It translates to ‚Make me sing‘ from XIIIth century Italian. It was funded in October 2018 by three singers and one director who wanted to create a choir with ‚equal‘ voices. It starts with 16 singers and friends, coming from various famous choirs from Fribourg, such as the St-Pierre-Aux-Bulles Choir or St-Michel choir, who joined efforts into creating a first project under the direction of Alexandre Raemy and Nathan Christe. The choir gives its first concerts with various musical repertories, and the choir starts quickly increasing in size and popularity.
