Alongside the University Choir, the 2013 edition of the Axuntábase awards were given to the young choir Los Peques del León de Oro and to the critic and disseminator José Gonzalo Fernández Mieres.
The University Choir acts in all the solemn events of the University of Oviedo, and it offers its own concerts. As part of its shows, there is also the Más allá de la Y tour, which visits diverse Asturian towns to bring choir music closer to the public.
