NFM Boys' Choir

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 choir’s discography includes albums released by the NFM: The Salzburg Marian Mass (2015) with music by Mozart, Witold Lutosławski. Opera omnia – Vol. 7 (2018) with songs for children by this composer, Rorate coeli, Magnificat, Missa Pastoritia by Marcin Józef Żebrowski (2018). They were all recorded under the direction of Andrzej Kosendiak. The latest CD release of the NFM Boys’ Choir conducted by Małgorzata Podzielny – This Day with music by Bob Chilcott, was released to celebrate the choir’s 10th anniversary (2019). In January 2022, the latest album of the NFM Boys’ Choir – The Light of a Winter Night – had its premiere, featuring arrangements of Christmas carols and pastorales by Michał Ziółkowski and recorded with the NFM Choir and NFM Leopoldinum Orchestra under the baton of Małgorzata Podzielny.

Apart from their regular rehearsals and concerts, the young singers participate in workshops, several times a year, run by Polish and international experts.

The choir won the Gold Diplomas at the International Festival of Choral Song (Międzyzdroje, 2020) and the World Peace Choral Festival Online Events (Vienna, 2021). It also received a Special Award for the highest score in the category of children’s and youth choirs and a Gold Diploma during the Polish National Choral Competition, held as part of the Polish Choral Forum “Wrocław City of Music” (2021).
