In 2017, the 20th anniversary of the founding of "El León de Oro", a vocal group that began as a small group of friends passionate about singing and which, today, has become a solid project that is being revealed as a reference in Spain and abroad, for example, the success of the public and critics and the invitations to the best festivals.

The training stands out for its versatility in terms of programs and has a variable geometry template, which allows it to offer all kinds of concerts with a wide repertoire ranging from Renaissance and Baroque masters to the most avant-garde works.

LDO has offered a cappella music at prominent Spanish festivals, various European countries, the United States and Africa, and also maintains a continuous collaboration with important orchestras of our country, with whom it has carried out works such as the Magnificat and the Passions according to San Juan and San Mateo by JS Bach, the Requiem by G. Fauré, the Requiem by WA Mozart, the Ninth Symphony by LV Beethoven, the Childhood of Christ by H. Berlioz or Daphnis and Cloe by M. Ravel, among others.

He has been invited to the “Musika-Music” festival, Religious Music Week of Cuenca, with his own concert and another collaborating with The Tallis Scholars under the direction of Peter Phillips, Logroño Ancient Music Festival, Ancient Music Festival of Aranjuez, International Festival «Sacred Art» in Madrid, «Bilbao Arte Sacro», two concerts in coproduction with the National Center of Musical Diffusion in Oviedo and León and the interpretation of the Coronation Mass of WA Mozart with the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, directed by Leopold Hager.

His greatest worldwide recognition was obtained in 2014 at the “London International a Cappella Choir Competition”, where he won the first prize. In his palmares also stand out the Grand National Prize of Choral Singing (2003 and 2006), Grand Prize «Cittá de Arezzo», International Choir Contest of Flanders, International Competition of Tolosa or International May Choir Competition of Varna (Bulgaria).

In 2019 he released the CD “Amarae Morti”, with the English label “Hyperion Records” with music by the great Renaissance masters. This recording has been directed by Peter Phillips, honorary director of LDO since November 2017.

In its educational aspect, since 2017 it organizes the Masterclass of management, with the presence of prestigious directors and students from different parts of the world. This training activity is directly linked to the intention of providing a service to the choral environment.
