Founded in the 1940s in the Parish of Santi Germano e Giovanni Bosco, the Schola Cantorum of Podenzano initially concentrated on sacred music, liturgical and choral pieces to accompany solemn celebrations on the major religious festivals.
With the passing of time its repertoire has increased and opened to various genres of music, first Renaissance music and then also opera and contemporary music.
Today the Schola Cantorum of Podenzano includes 35 voices and participates in musical events all over the province of Piacenza; it has given birth to a cultural association which seeks, among other activities, to spread knowledge of choral music.
The Director is Maestro Edoardo Mazzoni.
When necessary, the Schola Cantorum is accompanied at the organ by Nuccio Giacopazzi.
