The panel of judges noted in the minutes the high level of 'Entrevoces' in interpreting the repertoire chosen, in which two works by master Leo Brouwer: 'Cuando yo te tuve' and 'Cántico de celebración', stood out.
The award-winning choir will continue its journey until next July 13 by US cities like Louisville, Chicago, Durham and Minneapolis.
