Societat Coral Beneixama
At the end of 1989 Pedro Joaquín Francés Sanjuán, at that time director of the La Pau Music Band of Beneixama, accepted the challenge of directing and giving a new boost to the parish choir with the incorporation of other groups of singers.
In January 1990 the rehearsals begin and at the parties of September in the main mass of the day of the Mare de Déu, the Palazón mass is performed by the music band.
Little by little, the choir introduces popular and classical songs in its repertoire and, sometimes with the collaboration of the Music Band, a new line of performances begins in addition to those of a liturgical aspect.
The great challenge in the liturgical chants for the choir was the preparation of the 2nd Pontifical Mass of Perossi, which was first performed at parties in 1993.
After Pedro Joaquín, the choir has been directed by directors who have each contributed their experience and way of interpreting the music: Juan Bta. Romero Mestre, from October 1994 to September 1999; Alejandro Pérez Vidal, from October 1999 to September 2000; Vicent Castelló Sanjuán, from February 2001 to December 2008; and Juan Molina Sanchis, from January to September 2009.
