Amarante’s Third Age University currently has two choral groups, one of them settled in the Amarante campus, the other in the Vila Meã campus. The first mentioned is the main one, counting 58 participants with ages between 56 and 83 years old, most of them women. In Vila Meã, there are 17 elements, among singers and instrumentalists. The Third Age University choral groups are provided with ‘cavaquinhos’ and guitars, available for education purposes, a result from the cooperation established between this institution and the Academia Música 906. There have been several performances of the University every year, mainly based on the Portuguese popular song tradition.
