The vocal quartet Cantoría and the TROMPA project have signed a collaboration agreement that will allow the choirs participating in the project to access the repertoire of the vocal ensemble and also perform a concert that will bring together all the participants in spring 2021. Cantoría is currently making recordings of his repertoire and thus obtaining the synthesis of the voices so that they can be made available in the prototype for choir singers of the TROMPA project, which already has the collaboration of 6 choirs from Barcelona. All this will materialize with a concert in Barcelona with the participating choirs and a common repertoire previously recorded by Cantoría.
The TROMPA project, in its case of use of choir singers, has created an application to help choir singers in their individual practice and for the learning of choral music with or without knowledge of Musical language.
