What sort of

choir are you?

We are the first rock choir in Italy. Our choir was first established in 2010 and now counts up to 100 members. We sing rock and pop song in English; songs by Queen, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, U2, the Ramones, Blur, Imagine Dragons, David Bowie, Nirvana, Oasis, The Police, The Cure, Patti Smith and many more. Guitar, bass,

Cajon and sometimes the piano are used as accompaniment instruments to our live performances working up to an explosion of contagious energy!

 

ABOUT US

All about Vocals

 

The Teacher

Our director is Roberta Magnetti.

She has been playing, singing and breathing rock from a very young age and has now been leading this 4/4

mission for a few years. Her aim is to encourage all rock fans who know all the songs by heart but never

dared to sing them publicly to finally let lose. The Vocal eXcess welcomes all rockers between the ages of

11 and 70. Many of our members have never sung before, but this is just because they never found the right

group to sing with..

The Band

Guitar, cajon, bass and sometimes the piano are used as accompaniment instruments to our live performances

Matteo Salvadori

Member of the band "Mao e la rivoluzione" in the 90s, guitarist of Daniele Silvestri and 883, also delights as a singer with the Gypsy eyes, tribute band to Jimi Hendrix and has a huge passion for jazz of American crooners of the years '50. But he expresses it elsewhere.

Paolo Rigotto

He is our drummer but also a million other things. He can play like John Bonham, and dance like Don Lurio: take a ride on his YouTube channel, a world will open up. Least but not last, has a very welcoming and professional recording studio in which we recorded the instruments of the Vocal eXcess album, the FreakOne

Fabio Saba

We have the honor of being the only group in which this string wizard plays the electric bass. In fact he graduated in Jazz music and certainly saw him perform in Turin nights with the legendary U.T.O., the Ukulele Turin Orchestra. Yes, he also plays the ukulele.

The Choir

Variable as the climate of March, the number of Vocal eXcess choristers now has about 100 elements divided into 4 sections

Collaborations

Although the choir performs only and exclusively in rock concerts, over the years some choristers have lent their voices for artistic projects not really belonging to the genre. Following our collaborations:

 

Le case del quartiere

LA NOSTRA CASA

Two of the eight houses that make up the Torino Neighborhood Houses Network are also the home of the Vocal eXcess.

The "Casa del Quartiere di San Salvario" (via Oddino Moragri 14) is a laboratory for the design and implementation of social and cultural activities that since 2010 involves associations, citizens, cultural operators providing a public service that self-produces more than 75 percent of the resources necessary for its operation.

The " Cascina Roccafranca" (via Edoardo Rubino 45) was inaugurated on May 18, 2007 and has a space of 2,500 square meters in which citizens can meet, carry out activities, develop projects and experience moments of sociability.

Our activities

To the "People Have the Power" battle cry we always supported important causes for which it is worth spending and getting involved. We sang for "Finale for Nepal", a sports and cultural volunteer project born in Finale Ligure. We have sounded the presentation of Davide Cerullo's book "The Burnt Wings", whose sale was devoted to the construction of a kindergarten in Scampia. We raised funds for: NutriAid, an independent medical-humanitarian organization engaged in the fight against child malnutrition; Allegro con Moto social cooperative that operates on our territory in favor of disadvantaged people; Blue Interlusion Association that takes care of children suffering from chronic and disabling diseases.

 

In Christmas 2017 we took the stage of the Teatro Regio in the evening organized by the Paideia Foundation, which has been working for over twenty years to restore trust and serenity to children and families in difficulty.
