Schola Cantorum Budapestiensis

Orchestra, choir, ensemble


Schola Cantorum Budapestiensis, the concert choir of the Budapest Singing School, was founded in 1984. Two hundred students now attend the school and regularly participate in liturgical services of various major churches in the capital. The two artistic leaders, Dr Tamás Bubnó and Dr János Mezei work daily with the students as part of the regular school curriculum. A number of other music educators make up the teaching faculty; their work covers vocal technique, theory and counterpoint, Gregorian chant, Hungarian church music from the eighteenth-century to contemporary works, and medieval and renaissance Hungarian liturgical literature. The two artistic leaders prepare the students for performances in national and international tours and competitions. The Schola won first prize at the Ad Gloriam Dei competition in Poland and at the Free Choirs of Cathedral Schools in Amiens, France. Hungaroton has already recorded five CDs with the Schola.
