Founded in 1982 by Dr. Magdaléna Rovňáková, the Bratislava Boys’ Choir is part of a private music school enrolling students ages seven through twenty-eight. The choir’s repertoire features a wide variety of both sacred and secular works including Gregorian chant, Renaissance polyphony, concert Masses, arrangements of folk songs, and works by contemporary composers. The widely traveled choir has collaborated with the Slovak Philharmonic, the Vienna Symphony, and the Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra in addition to recording albums. The boys also have been featured in the soundtracks of several television movies.
