Since its beginnings, hundreds of children aged 12 to 14 have attended classes twice a week, receiving a music education to enable them to become future singers. This children’s choir is the main pool of talent on which the Orfeón Donostiarra draws.
The Orfeoi Txiki’s involvement in different events held in the city includes their performance together with the Orfeón Donostiarra at the San Sebastián Day Mass in January and the Salve Regina chants held on St Mary’s Day in August in the Basilica of Santa María del Coro.
However, they also give individual concerts, either alone or accompanied by the Orfeón and other choirs. A charity concert for UNICEF has been held on 28 December every year since 1998, entitled De los Niños para los Niños (From the Children to the Children), at the Kursaal Auditorium in Donostia-San Sebastián.
