Czech Chamber Music Society • Prague Philharmonic Children’s Choir


CSKH

A children’s choir also fits in a chamber music series, although its appearance is a rarity. All the more special is the Advent concert of the outstanding Prague Philharmonic Children’s Choir with guests Roman Janál, Slavomír Hořínka, and Kateřina Englichová. Will hear Bohuslav Martinů’s Three Legends and the Ceremony of Carols by Benjamin Britten.

The Czech Philharmonic Children’s Choir

The Czech Philharmonic Children’s Choir was founded in 1932 by Jan Kühn, a distinguished singer, director and choirmaster. Originally founded for the needs of the Czech Radio in Prague, the choir gained notoriety and in 1952 became part of the Czech Philharmonic, and remained so for forty years.

The choir is known not only in Europe, but on all five continents. Over the course of its existence it has given thousands of talented children a love of music and art. The choir is regularly invited to major music festivals and on concert tours. In addition to giving independent performances, it also collaborates with leading orchestras and operas. The Czech Philharmonic Children’s Choir has worked with the National Theatre in Prague since 1936, where children from the choir take roles in operas.

Among the choir’s greatest achievements are appearances at La Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Tchaikovsky Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire, the Bregenzer Festspiele and elsewhere. The Czech Philharmonic Children’s Choir has also emerged victorious in a number of international choir competitions (Paris, Princeton, Wuppertal, Tolosa, Arezzo). During its existence, the choir has recorded over 50 CDs of both Czech and international music.
