Founded in 1932, the Prague Philharmonic Children’s Choir is one of the most recognized Czech artistic collectives. Its tradition and the breadth of its artistic scope make it a unique musical institution, not only in the Czech Republic but throughout Europe. Its most talented children have grown into distinguished musicians—conductors, directors, composers, singers and instrumentalists.

This program, Spiritual Journey Through the Centuries, is the most significant choral works by leading world composers, with organ accompaniment (G.P. da Palestrina, A. Dvořák, P.I. Tchaikovsky, C. Franck, J. Novák, a. Pärt ad.)

Among the choir’s greatest achievements are appearances at La Scala in Milan, Carnegie Hall in New York and the Bregenzer Festspiele in Austria.

Over the course of its existence, the choir has recorded over 50 CDs of both Czech and international music. Its outstanding reputation is demonstrated by the numerous awards and official honors it has received, including the European Grand Prix. The choir regularly collaborates with leading orchestras, ensembles and soloists and has performed successfully in Europe, Japan, USA, Canada, Mexico, Singapore, Malaysia, South Africa, Australia and New Zealand.
