Candidates will be selected from auditions in May and June 2023, and the choir is expected to start in September 2023. Despite the creation of the new mixed voice choir, the tradition boys choir, the 'Escolania' will continue to only be all boys from the ages of 9 to 14.

The Escolania is considered the oldest music school in Europe and has been teaching students since the 13th century.
