About 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. In its 80 years of existence, it has trained thousands of talented children, instilling in them love of music and the art. Among the choir’s greatest achievements are appearances at many of the world’s great venues, such as La Scala, Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York, the Tchaikovsky Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire, the Bregenzer Festspiele, Rudolfinum concert hall in Prague and elsewhere. The Czech Philharmonic Children’s Choir has also emerged victorious in a number of international choir competitions (Paris, Princeton, Wuppertal, Tolosa, Arezzo) including a record three wins at the prestigious competition at Tolos in Spain. During its existence, the choir has recorded over 50 CDs of both Czech and international music. The Czech Philharmonic Children’s Choir has its own unique and exceptional sound and is famed across the globe for its enchanting performances. The naturalness of the children’s voices, their purity and polish are immediately captivating. The choir currently has over six hundred members, making it the largest choir in the Czech Republic, with children attending the choir from three years of age.
