The Choral Academy is a programme which develops choirs of children and young people at all stages of education: from primary school to professional choral training. The aim of the project is to spread the idea of singing through founding new school choirs and training the already existing ones. This is done through tuition, financing and elaborating the curriculum of choral education (with a view to create a choral music manual for school choirs) as well as through establishing professional networks for choirmasters. The programme is co-financed by the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage.

Polish National Youth Choir

This programme was established in 2013, upon the initiative of Agnieszka Franków-Żelazny who is the project’s artistic director. There are two segments of the project: the choir and conductors
workshops. Each time the young choristers are taught by a different guest conductor (Paul McCreesh, Jacek Sykulski, Benjamin Shwartz) and voice teachers (including Rafał Bartmiński, Eamonn Dougan, Rebecca Lodge, Dominic Peckham, and Agnieszka Rehlis). The choristers work with the greatest authorities on singing and their concerts in Poland (Wrocław, Kraków, Poznań, Rzeszów, Katowice) engage local choral groups across the country. 2014 saw the Polish National Youth Choir perform in Ostrava (Czech Republic) and at the 3rd Summer Choral Festival in Portugal.

Singing Poland

Singing Poland supports the development of school choirs through subsidising choral lessons, meetings of conductors with local coordinators, conductor workshops and choral workshops, annual contests of school choirs and occasional concerts. Part and parcel of Singing Poland are manuals and books on choral methodology. Over the last years, around 200 choirs have participated in the programme every year, involving 50 000 young choristers.
