Chamber Choir of the Faculty of Arts and Pedagogy, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poland
Conductor: Beata Szymańska




Chamber Choir of the Faculty of Arts and Pedagogy, Adam Mickiewicz University


The Chamber Choir of the Faculty of Arts and Pedagogy (WPA), Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, was established in 1996 on the initiative of Beata Szymańska, the choir's conductor. The ensemble comprises students and graduates of Artistic Education in Musical Art. The choir gives concerts both at home and abroad, with performances in Germany, Italy, Sweden and Macedonia. It also participates actively in competitions and festivals as well as academic events. The choir's repertoire is diverse not only in the range of musical epochs it stretches, from Renaissance to contemporary times, but also in the scope of forms, from a capella to vocal-instrumental music. The choir has had a fruitful cooperation with the Symphonic Orchestra of the Kalisz Philharmonic. Together, the two ensembles performed pieces by W.A. Mozart, G.G. Gorczycki, W. Kilar and Z. Preisner. Recordings of the WPA Chamber Choir include an album with Christmas carols, the Holy Mass sequence Lauda Sion by G.P. da Palestrina and a Polish premiere performance of Egil Hovland's Agnus Dei, concerto for bassoon and mixed choir a capella, together with the basoonist Nikodem Antosik from the Kalisz Philharmonic.
