The Susice Children´s Choir

…performs in the picturesque town of Sušice, southwest of the Czech Republic. The choir was founded by its current conductor, Mr Josef Baierl, in 1969. Since then he has trained hundreds of children, giving them love of music and the art. At present nearly two hundred children aged 5 to 19 are involved in singing in three preparatory departments and a concert ensemble. The management of the choir is the responsibility of the School of Arts in Sušice and the Parents´ Association.

The repertoire of the choir is very extensive and attracts its audience by the variety of music ranging from medieval choral music to works by contemporary composers and folk songs, including several popular works by the Beatles and Queen. The choir has worked with outstanding Czech composers and writers (Miroslav Raichl, Václav Fischer, Ivo Fischer, Věroslav Neumann and Aleš Březina) who have also dedicated their works to the choir.

Dance teacher Ms Hana Kopová choreography enhances some of the performances, e.g. The Opening of the Wells by Bohuslav Martinů.

Conductors:  Ms Andrea Sušilová and  Mr Jan Pelech
