This unusual group of young Mexican singers was organised in January 1995 as the Schola Cantorum, with the express purpose of singing the classical repetoire as well as possible, to provide education and income for these talented singers. There were thirty singers in the group, and ten alternates.
Their conductor was Dr. Harlan Snow, a retired American music professor who earned a doctorate of music degree in voice performance and musicology from Northwestern University.
The Schola Cantorum was hailed as the premier choral group in Mexico at the time. The choir, with the Guadalajara Philarmonic Orchestra, opened the 1996 season to packed a house and has sung numerous concerts in its short life to continual critical acclaim.
