GENTLEMEN SINGERS

Vocal Ensemble Gentlemen Singers from Hradec Králové is the only professional male octet of its kind in the Czech Republic. The ensemble has won several international competitions and is a frequent guest of prestigious festivals from the USA to South Korea. Besides the fact that the ensemble has given appr. 500 concerts in twenty countries on four continents and has released six own well-acclaimed CDs since its foundation in 2003, the members also organize the annual festival “Sborové slavnosti • Czech Choir Festival • Hradec Králové”. Its main goals are to promote a current choir scene and to spread Czech music outside the Czech Republic thanks to invited choirs from the whole world.

An integral part of Gentlemen Singers’ work consists of further education thanks to organizing various workshops and masterclasses focused on both individuals and choirs. The members of the ensemble capitalize their own experience which have been gained by cooperations with the best ensembles, conductors, choirmasters, and composers. Vocal Ensemble Gentlemen Singers, whose activity is financially supported by the City Council of Hradec Králové, Hradec Králové’s region and The Ministry of Culture, is a very proud ambassador of the Czech choir school.
