17 coros

Thanks and remembrance.

We would like to thank the Coros Coordinator Selena Carpio Jerez, Eduard Isaac Peidró and Alex Martín Navarro, for the information and facilities, and of course, to all the people who kindly agreed to be photographed. We also wanted to pay a special tribute to all the family, friends and colleagues who have paraded and who are currently not among us. They are part of the history of the Coros.


The female Coros

Traditionally, the Coros reserved a practically non-existent role for women. They did not participate in the parades, nor in the meals, nor in the weekend trip.
The coristas claimed that these meetings, with their own codes of conduct, were a man’s thing. They were attitudes that perhaps it is difficult for us to understand today, but that in some other times were shared even by the women themselves.

Although we do not know if it was out of conviction or because the fact of being without their husbands and children for a few days was a long-awaited mini vacation for them. Taking advantage of this circumstance, some women would get together and organize a weekend getaway to a hotel on the coast. Possibly this was the origin of the first women’s coros. They also had a great time on a group getaway without their husbands.

And already in 1990, the first female coro, the Coro La Sirena, was born. As a result, the F for Femenino (feminine) was added to the terminology ACH (Asociación Coral y Humorística) and, little by little, new women’s coros appear. Always keeping all the essence and traditions of the male coros. In this edition of 2023, there have been 6 (ACHF Voramar, La Sirena, Les Ones del Port, La Rosa dels Vents, ACHF La Maireta, ACHF L’Òstia).

The appearance of the female coros created a certain debate but, the controversy has fortunately disappeared.
