ABOUT US01
NFM Choir
The NFM Choir was founded in 2006 by Andrzej Kosendiak and since its inception functions under the directorship of Agnieszka Frankow-Żelazny. In a short space of time it has established itself as one of Poland’s leading choral ensembles, thanks to its rich and varied repertoire, which includes works from the Renaissance to the contemporary, and a cappella to vocal-instrumental in the form of oratorio, opera, and the symphony. It has collaborated with such distinguished conductors as Paul McCreesh, Giovanni Antonini, Jacek Kaspszyk, Krzysztof Penderecki, James MacMillan, Bob Chilcott and Jan Łukaszewski.
'The Wroclaw Philharmonic Choir, familiar from it’s participation in the Gabrieli Consort’s outstanding recordings of Mendelssohn’s Elijah and Berlioz Grand Messe Des Morts, emerges extremely positively from this opening sequence [The Shepherds Sing]. Freshness of timbre, individuality in the four-voiced sections and genuine versatility of interpretative approach are major characteristics'.

The ensemble has participated in recordings of Franz Xaver Richter’s compositions under the baton of Andrzej Kosendiak (2009), Hanna Kulenty’s Music 4 album with Wrocław Chamber Orchestra Leopoldinum under Ernst Kovacic (2011), Berlioz’s monumental Grande Messe des Morts (2011), Mendelssohn’s Elijah (2012), Britten’s War Requiem (2013) – all three under Paul McCreesh. The choir’s first own a cappella album, Words Painted with Sounds and a CD with Bob Chilcott’s music The Seeds of Stars were released in 2012. Future plans include concert in Ankara, Turkey in April 2014 and a new a cappella album released in June 2014.

International Tours
In a few years the Choir has performed over 200 times, collaborating among others with the Gabrieli Consort, Il Giardino Armonico and NDR Orchestra, giving concerts at the Salle Pleyel (Paris), the Barbican Centre (London), the Royal Albert Hall (London), Gewandhaus (Leipzig). It was a guest of the music festivals: Schleswig-Holstein, Gent van Vlaanderen, Wratislavia Cantans, Warsaw Autumn. In addition to regular performances with the other NFM ensembles, the group is touring Poland performing with leading polish philharmonic orchestras, including Polish Radio Orchestras in Katowice and Warsaw. It is often being broadcasted on the Polish Radio and abroad. In 2009 and 2011 it was the first Polish choir to be invited to the legendary BBC Proms. In 2011 at the Varaždin Baroque Evenings festival in Croatia it received one of the three main awards – the Kantor Award for exceptional performance of works by Johann Sebastian Bach. Whilst continually expanding its work across Europe, the Choir made its first tour of the United States of America in June 2013 and in October it performed with the world-wide known group The Swingle Singers.
