Camerata de Bogota is founded with the lead of musicians Ana Maria Fonseca y Juan Camilo Araoz; they are specialized in historical performance and after almost a decade studying in Europe they return to Colombia and decided to initiate this project with focus in the pedagogic-musical aspect for young musicians interested in an approach to the Baroque and Renassaince repertoire. This project will bring new spaces where they can develop their artistic quality in a creative and dedicated environment.
For many years, Ana Maria and Juan Camilo gave shape to this idea of continuing to broadcast the value of this music in young musicians and the general public in Colombia, creating opportunities to enjoy it and live it.
The project began to become a reality in the second half of 2018, with results that had surpass the expectations by far. The ensemble has already performed in several occasions throughout the city with many different repertoires: Madrigales and the Italian music from the seiccento, music from the Bolivians Missions, Italian religious music and the Baroque and Renaissance Christmas repertoire; as well as the participation of two international guest: the Bolivian violinist and flautist Miguel Angel Guzman and the French trumpeter Julia Boucaut.
The Camerata Bogota had been presented at the Fabio Lozano auditorium of the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University, the Teresa Cuervo auditorium of the National Musseum of Colombia, the Bogota Major Seminary, the headquarters of the Youth Symphony Orchestra and the Villa Mayor Theater.
Currently, the project counts with almost 30 musicians between singers and instrumentist; all of them students from several universities in Bogota. Some comments for the young musicians that are part of the Camerata Bogota:
