LUTNIA Mixed Choir from Chorzów.jpg


The history of the "Lutnia" Mixed Choir dates back to 1908, when lovers of choral songs and Polish patriots established the Singers' Society in Królewska Huta (former name of today's Chorzów). "Lutnia" was created out of the need of people who want to awaken the national spirit and promote speech and songs in the Polish language.

Since 2000, he has been a member and co-founder of the Confraternity of the Oldest Choirs and Orchestras of the Silesian Voivodeship. Over the course of over 100 years, the Choir has become known as a performer of many genres and musical forms, for which it has received numerous diplomas and awards.

The choir has its own Banner - the original from 1913 is currently in the collection of the Museum in Chorzów. On the 100th anniversary of its creation, in 2013, the choristers were given a modernized copy of the original. The Banner was decorated with the Honorary Gold Badge with a Diamond, awarded by the ŚZChiO Management Board in Katowice.

The choir's headquarters is the Chorzów Cultural Center. The conductor of "Lutnia" is Łukasz Szmigiel, a graduate of the Karol Szymanowski Academy of Music in Katowice. Janusz Karaś is the president of the choir's management board.

The choir currently has 36 members and 5 supporting and honorary members.

The ensamble will present folk music.
