Cancionetta Praga is a choir, which was founded in 2010 by the choirmaster Lukáš Jindřich. Members are singers who previously worked in select, mostly Prague, choirs (Bambini di Praga, Radost Praha and others). The choir's repertoire is very wide. It includes spiritual and secular compositions from old masters to 20th-century music, folk songs from all over the world, and Christmas carols of Europe and America sung in their native languages, and of course folk songs from Bohemia, Moravia and Silesia. But the choir can also interpret different musical styles such as pop-music. For its wide range, Cancioneta Praga is invited to launch major international festivals, such as YoungPrague, Praga singing etc. In exceptional cases, the choir is extended to male voices. In addition to separate concerts, Cancioneta Praga collaborates with significant Czech ensembles, orchestras and artists (eg PKF - Prague Philharmonia, Prague Chamber Orchestra without conductor, Musica Bohemica, Bohemian Boys Choir from Hradec Králové, Central Music of the Army of the Czech Republic, harpist Jana Boušková, guitar virtuoso Lubomír Brabec, pianist Lukáš Klánský, composers Jaroslav Krček and Martin Hendrych, conductors Marek Šedivý, Jan Kucera, Vojtěch Spurný, Jakub Martinec, band CHINASKI, also filming for television and two recorded CDs - The Magical Christmas and The Gospel Train Is Coming.)
