Tinódi Chamber Choir



The choir was formed in 2009 by music school teachers under the artistic direction of Károly Borbás. Initially, they were regular participants in the summer programme of Várpalota, the "Renaissance Days", linked to the Thury Castle - with Renaissance choral works appropriate to the occasion. Their repertoire includes religious, secular and folkloric works. Every Advent they sing traditional and modern arrangements of Christmas carols. They regularly perform at events in Várpalota and the surrounding area. They perform their solo concert on World Music Day every year.

It was brought to life by the need to present a fun choral piece for children at the annual teachers' concert for our students. From the following year onwards, the choir became a permanent fixture at the Renaissance Days, which were linked to the summer Castle Life, and this permanent programme determined the main profile of the choir: the backbone of their repertoire was mainly Renaissance sacred and secular motets and madrigals. The name of the Chamber Choir was chosen to reflect this profile: since 2010, the name Tinódi - the Renaissance musician - has been used. They are also regular participants in the 1st Advent Candle-lighting Sunday concert of the Evangelical Church in várpalota.
