The Accademia Vocale Città di Livorno was founded in September 2006 by the Associazione Lavoratori Comunali di Livorno and a number of members of the Coro Polifonico Città di Cecina. The idea was to form a group of amateur singers to promote original programmes and high standards of performances. The choir master is Daniela Contessi and the group made their debut performance on home ground at the Teatro Goldoni in Livorno, and have also appeared in Rovigo and Ravenna for various events.
The Corale Domenico Savio was founded in 1965 by Don Lelio Bausani who still plays an active part in the training of the chorists. The choir, which has 25 young members, has performed throughout Italy and abroad to great acclaim. Their repertoire ranges from Renaissance to contemporary music, with particular emphasis on polyphonic arrangements.
