Poznań Chamber Choir

Poznań Chamber Choir draws on the Polish choral tradition at its best and blends it with a strong sense of passion and novel approach to art. Their excellence in musical interpretation has been gaining both national and international acclaim. The choir was established in January 2005 by Bartosz Michałowski, a long-time assistant to Prof. Stefan Stuligrosz, the founding father of the famous "Poznań Nightingales" - Boys ́ and Men ́s Choir of the Poznań Philharmonic. The Choir was awarded with three GRAND PRIX awards at major competitions in 2006, 2007 and 2010. It gave a gripping performance in Marktoberdort , during one of the most prestigious competitions worldwide. In July 2010 the choir earned the first award and the audience award at the International Choral Festival in Neuchâtel (Switzerland). Another milestone was the performance during the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, which was hailed as another spectacular success. May 2011 saw the Poznań Chamber Choir as the first Polish to perform with the legendary Concerto Köln. Their concerts in Mikołów and Poznań had a follow-up in the form of subsequent joint projects in 2012 in Cologne. Accompanied by the Czech Virtuosi Orchestra in November 2011, the choir gave an opening performance at the Musica Sacromontana Festival and sung Carmina Burana with the Polish Radio Symphony Orchestra. It was followed by a series of concerts with the legendary blues-rock band – Dżem, and the performance of Mahler Symphony No. 3 at the Poznań Philharmonic. The same year witnessed a concert of premiers of choral music, prepared by the Choir for the Poznań Music Spring Festival, and “History Written With Music”, a series of early music concerts. In 2013, the Poznań Chamber Choir was the only Polish ensemble to take part in international celebrations of Morten Lauridsen’s 70th birthday anniversary. The list of festivals attended by the choir that year is long: Nostalgia, Transatlantyk, Musica Sacromontana, not to mention the concerts with superb violinists - Agata Szymczewska and Kuba Jakowicz. The Poznań Chamber Choir also became the official choir of the OPUS 966 Polish Composer Competition, staging premiere performances of the pieces awarded in the first edition of the contest. The Poznań Chamber Choir has 10 compact disc recordings, featuring, among others, the compositions by Feliks Nowowiejski or Pasquale Anfossi’s Oratorio of Filippo Neri’s death, recorded in 2013 during the subsequent edition of the Musica Sacromontana Festival. Their discography includes a Blu-ray DVD recorded with Dżem and Le Quattro Stagioni Orchestra. Since 2007 the Poznań Chamber Choir has been cooperating with the Poznań Philharmonic, preparing both a cappella and accompanied projects. Since August 2012, the Poznań Chamber Choir has been accompanying the subsequent editions of Transatlantyk Festival, giving performances with the artists such as Mark Isham and Sara Andon.
