The Chamber Choir of Adam Mickiewicz University of Poznan has been in existence since 1992. The group is composed of 40 people, mainly university students, graduates and young teachers. The majority of this group is made up of singers who are not currently studying music for a career but simply love the choral art. This ensemble, founded and conducted by Krzysztof Szydzisz, performs mainly the nineteenth and twentieth century music, composed for different voice arrangements. Its basic repertoire, religious and secular compositions of Polish and European composers, is enriched with gospel songs, world music, international folk music as well as many pop music arrangements.
The choir participates actively in the life of Adam Mickiewicz University, providing musical settings to the main celebrations in the academic world. Regular concerts, often accompanied by elements of other art disciplines, have already become a tradition. The choir has met with great success in national and international choral conferences, festivals and competitions both in Poland and abroad.
In October 1995, the group was awarded second prize at the 7th Festival of Sacred Music in Rumia and in May 1996 Grand Prix at the 27th Choral Festival "Legnica Cantat 96". In 1997, the choir was invited by Polish National Radio to take part in the international competition of broadcasting companies "Let the People Sing". In 1998 the choir won the second prize in the International Choir Competition in Llangollen (Wales, U.K.) and Grand Prix of the 29th Choral Festival "Legnica Cantat 98" in Poland. At the same festival the choir was awarded the Polish National Radio's prize for the best choral tone. The most recent successes of the choir are: the first prize at the International Choral Festival in Miedzyzdroje (Poland), and Grand Prix of the 8th International Competition of Students Choirs "Academic Banska Bystrica '99" (Slovak Republic). In September 1999 choir was touring United States of America, giving concerts in universities and churches of 4 states (Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, Indiana).
In April 2000 the choir was invited to perform "Passio" by Arvo Pärt with the world-famous Hilliard Ensemble.
The Chamber Choir of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan is the initiator and organizer of the International Festival of University Choirs "Universitas Cantat" in Poznan, successfully held from the year 1998.
