Kórus Spontánusz (Choir)

Founded: December 2001 - Sporon, Hungary

It happened on a December night in 2001 in Sopron in front of the Dömötöri Patisserie where Kórus Spontánusz sang Christmas carols for the passersby. They did not notice being founded, only the joy of polyphonic singing. It was, and still is their experience that making music together strengthens existing friendships and facilitates the development of new ones. The founder and director of the choir is Zoltán Kocsis-Holper.

Kórus Spontánusz started out with 13 people and their numbers have only been growing ever since, they count 25-35 members on average. They gladly sing anything may that be it religious or secular, Hungarian or from abroad regardless of its period or language if it fits our skills and numbers. Their repertiotre includes works by J.S. Bach, G. Allegri, T. Tallis, C. Monteverdi, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, Felix Mendelssohn, Franz Liszt, Bárdos L, Daróci Bárdos T. E. Whitacre, O. Gjeilo. They sing in churches, restaurants, museums, the Academy of Music, small villages in Hungary or Austria, at international competitions, libraries - anyplace where they are welcome.

Awards include: Fesztiválkórus at Magyar Kórusok és Zenekarok Szövetsége (2005); Silver Medal in Musica Sacra category at World Choir Games (2008); Gold Medal in Mixed Chamber Choirs category at World Choir Games (2008); Silver Medal in Musica Sacra category at World Choir Games (2014); Gold Medal in Mixed Chamber Choirs categoryt at World Choir Games (2014).
