Canti di Praga - chamber choir 
The Mixed Choir of the Pardubice Conservatory
The Pardubice Conservatory Symphony Orchestra
Jan Svejkovský -

The chamber mixed choir Canti di Praga was founded in 1992, when it started as a girls' choir under the direction of Prof. Jiří Chvála, composed of graduates of the Kühn Children's Choir. The choir performs mostly a capella, but also performs large oratorio works. In the past, the choir has collaborated with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Chamber Philharmonic Orchestra Pardubice, Central Music of the Czech Republic, folklore ensemble Hradistan and other artists. The choir regularly performs in joint concerts with the Prague Philharmonic Children’s Choir. A revival of the traditional repertoire is the regular cooperation with the Prague Film Orchestra in concerts of film music, most recently in January 2024 at the Municipal House. In 2015 and 2016, the choir was invited to collaborate on the spectacular audiovisual screenings of Titanic and Amadeus, during which these films were screened accompanied by live music. Since 2014, Canti di Praga has been led by choirmaster Jan Svejkovský.

The Mixed Choir of the Pardubice Conservatory is composed of students from 1st to 3rd year who do not study solo singing and do not play in a symphony orchestra. During the forty-five years of the school's existence the choir has performed on various occasions, mainly in connection with some important projects. The founder of the choir was Vlastislav Novák. Since 2009, the choir has worked continuously under the artistic direction of Tomáš Židek and in close cooperation with the school's conducting department. The choir often cooperates with the school symphony orchestra and other choirs of the region. Among the most important projects are performances of Smetana's The Bartered Bride, Dvořák's Stabat Mater and Mozart's Requiem. In June 2018, the students successfully participated in the Foerster's Osenice Festival. In September 2018, Jan Fajfr took over the leadership of the ensemble, and currently Ondřej Mejsnar is the choirmaster.

The Pardubice Conservatory Symphony Orchestra was established soon after the school was founded. From the very beginning, it has been an integral part of teaching and student practice, when future professionals are actively acquainted with Czech and world music literature. It regularly accompanies outstanding students and graduates and participates in many other events within the school. Otakar Tvrdý, Vladimír Kulík and Jaroslav Brych have all been involved in his artistic activities as conductors. Since 2010, Tomáš Židek has been its leader. Particularly under his leadership, the orchestra's activities have expanded far beyond its home town and have greatly enriched the cultural life not only of Pardubice, but also of the entire region. In its history, the orchestra has successfully undertaken a number of its own projects, such as the staging of Smetana's cycle My Country, the operas The Bartered Bride, The Kiss (Smetana), In the Well (Blodek), Sister Angelica (Puccini), Rusalka (Dvořák), Dvořák's Stabat Mater, Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, Hindemith's Symphonic Metamorphoses and other works. He has participated in the Concerto Bohemia radio competition several times, in which he was the absolute winner in 2014. Since 2020, Jan Svejkovský has also worked with the ensemble as a conductor.
