Founded in 2009 by Andrzej Kosendiak – Director of the Witold Lutosławski National Forum of Music in Wrocław – the choir is ambitiously active in the artistic life and gives concerts with leading conductors and ensembles.
Since the onset of its activities the NFM Boys’ Choir engages in collaborations with the Wrocław Opera (The Ugly Duckling, 2016–17), Capitol Musical Theatre (Alina Janowska’s Birthday concert during 34th Festival of Stage Song, 2013), and the Wrocław Puppet Theatre(Yemaya – Queen of the Seas, 2016–17). It is often invited to participate in prestigious events of the International Festival Wratislavia Cantans (it appeared under John Eliot Gardiner and Giovanni Antonini) or the Leo Festival. It has also performed in Austria, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Japan.
The ensemble’s discography includes albums published by the NFM: The Salzburg Marian Mass (2015) with the works by W. A. Mozart, and an album released as part of the series Witold Lutosławski. Opera omnia – Vol. 7, with children’s songs by this composer (2018); both albums were recorded under the direction of Andrzej Kosendiak.
