About Orfeón Complutense
The Orfeón Complutense has its headquarters in the historic university city of Alcalá de Henares, the city where Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra was born in 1547 and which, since 1998, has held the title of World Heritage City awarded by UNESCO. Since its foundation in 1988, the choir has offered 339 concerts in which it has performed works from different musical genres: opera, zarzuela, symphonic choirs, sacred music, etc.
In July 2020 it changed its name from Complutense Lyric Society to Orfeón Complutense. Its head office moved to La Galatea Cultural Center in Alcalá de Henares (Madrid). In October 2020, all the components of the former Miguel de Cervantes Lyric Choir, an entity founded in 2003 that carried out many concerts both in Spain and in various European cities, joined the Orfeón Complutense. Currently, the Complutense Choir is made up of 100 singers.
