The Gentlemen Singers are based in Hradec Králové, and are the only professional male octet in the Czech Republic. The ensemble has won several international competitions and is a frequent guest at prestigious festivals, from the USA to South Korea.
The ensemble has given more than 600 concerts in twenty three countries on four continents and has released multiple well-acclaimed CDs since its foundation in 2003. The members also organise the annual festival Sborové slavnosti (Czech Choir Festival), which takes place in Hradec Králové. The main main goals of the festival are to promote a “current choir scene” and to spread Czech music outside the Czech Republic to invited choirs from across the world.
An integral part of Gentlemen Singers’ work consists of further education thanks to organising various workshops and masterclasses focused on both individuals and choirs. The members of the ensemble capitalise their own experiences which have been gained by co-operations with experienced 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.
