Prizes and awards

The artistic level of the choir has been awarded several times in regional, national and international competitions and festivals. The “Coro Polifonico di Ruda” has been taking part in regional festivals and contests since its first years.

Under the artistic direction of Secondo Dal Bianco, the choir took part in eight regional choral competitions and won three first prizes, three second prizes and one fourth prize.

With the maestro Tullio Pinat,


The “Coro Polifonico di Ruda”, like many other choirs, began performing in the forties and fifties by offering folk songs and transcriptions written by Friulian authors. However, all the maestros have left enough time for so-called “art” or “cultivated” music, that is polyphony. Tullio Pinat, violinist and great teacher, was the first maestro to introduce polyphony and, in 1953, he enrolled the choir onto the first Arezzo National Choral Competition. Since then, it has been an ever-increasing success that prevails to the present day.


In Ruda – a small village in the province of Udine, in Friuli-Venezia Giulia, fifty kilometres from Trieste and just over a hundred from Venice – singing has always been part of the town’s history. Accounts of the pastoral visits by the bishop of Gorizia Carlo Michele d’Attems in the second half of the eighteenth century witness the ability of the inhabitants of Ruda to catch the attention of the prelate with soavissimi canti (the most agreeable singing).


The “Coro Polifonico di Ruda” is an Italian male  choir first founded in the 1920s and re-founded in 1945. It has held concerts all over the world: from the United States to Argentina, from Canada to Mongolia, from the Philippines to China and Russia, from Portugal to Bulgaria, from Norway to Greece and other European countries. It has taken part in more than fifty regional, national and international choir competitions winning first prize twenty-five times,
