The Academy has two major branches: the orchestra and the choir, which allows it to address both the vocal and instrumental genres separately or jointly according to the production and the program.

Its versatility allows it to approach from the great symphonic repertoire of Beethoven, with which it was presented for the first time in public concert, to the Baroque and classical tradition, the great romantic repertoire, to the music of S. XX.
