PRAGUE PHILHARMONIC CHORUS

The Prague Philharmonic Choir (PPC), founded in 1935, is a leading European vocal ensemble. Since 2007 its principal choirmaster has been Lukáš Vasilek.

The PPC’s repertoire is centred primarily around oratorio and cantata works. The choir has worked with eminent international orchestras such as the Czech Philharmonic and the Berliner Philharmoniker, and conductors including Daniel Barenboim, Jiří Bělohlávek, Zubin Mehta and Simon Rattle. Beyond its standard choral repertoire, the PPC is likewise active in opera, working regularly with the National Theatre in Prague, and has held the status of choir in residence at Bregenzer Festspiele since 2010.

Since 2011 it has organised its own choral concert series in Prague, with a programme focused notably on presentations of less well-known choral works. The choir regards educational endeavours as an intrinsic part of its activity, working with the young generations. In this context, it has been involved in organising a choral academy for students of singing. The PPC has an extensive discography, with many titles released by major international labels.
