Aabout the choir

Some facts about the choir

The origin of this choir dates back to 2000. That year children´s choir Hlásek from Litoměřice celebrated 45th anniversary of its foundation and the previous members were invited. They instigated a dialogue with the choir master prof. Fruhauf, the founder of Hlásek and the choir master of the girl´s choir Máj as well. He agreed with the idea to lead the new ensamble. Since September the women´s chamber choir Cantica Bohemica started to sing and in May 2001 registered itself as a civil association.

Although the choir does not exist for a long time, it has always been known on our musical stage. The first great success was the titul of absolute winner in International competition of Christmas and Advent music in Prague called „Pražské Vánoce 2004“. The second was the posibility to represent the Czech Republic in the festival „Cori di Europa 2005“ in Italy becouse Cantica Bohemica was chosen from 12 Czech choirs and recommended by Mr Radomír Melmuka, the professor in Prague conservatoire.

The choir master prof. Vl. Fruhauf takes credit for the fact, that CB is doing really well. He obtained many awards with his choirs during his professional carrer either with Hlásek or Máj, the choir of Pedagogical school in Litoměřice.

The choir Cantica Bohemica was introduced in December 2000 for the first time.

After three-months existence of this choir, there were some financial troubles. Thanks to the grant from the Litoměřice town council in January 2001 the choir could continue its singing activity.

Singers meet regularly at the Basic school of B. Němcová once a week, before concerts, competitions or tours also at the weekends.

Cantica Bohemica focuses on choral compositions a-capella of Czech and foreign composers and arrangements of folk songs.

Every year CB organises traditional International Choir Days in Litoměřice. Nowadays the choir consist of 28 women singers and creates an inseparable part of choirs in Litoměřice.
