The secondary school choir of the Padányi Catholic School was founded in 1998 at the request of the Piarist director Tibor Borján, under the direction of István Zámbó, choirmaster of the Padányi Schola.From 2005 to 2008 the choir was led by Pál Vikman, and from 2009 to the present day it has been under the direction of Cecília Zsilinszky. The choir's repertoire includes folk songs and secular compositions, but mostly church music.
In the past, they were regular participants in the Singing Youth programme and the Brusznyai Memorial concerts. They have always competed at the Helicon Festival every two years and have achieved good results.
