Zero in Condotta

The vocal group Zero in Condotta was unofficially born in the academic year 2004/2005. This a cappella choir,formed by 14 guys, is a quite new reality,grown up in the C.R.C (Centro Ricreativo Corale della Brianza,www.crcbrianza.it),a cultural association established by the choir master Pasquale Amico.
Zero in condotta’s members are the same guys that, after several years of experience in the young C.R.C. choral laboratory, created, together with the choir master Amico, a group that is now called Zero in Condotta. The group’s repertory is an “a’cappella” repertory that goes from sacred music to the secular one, from the classical to the modern one,from madrigals to gospel,jazz,pop music.
