About

Warsaw University of Technology
Academic Choir

 

Warsaw UT Choir is undoubtedly one of the most dynamically developing ensembles in Poland and
one of the best academic choirs nationwide. It exudes joy and energy, impresses with
professionalism and delights with its sound.

The choir is composed of mostly students and graduates of the Warsaw University of Technology:
young and ambitious singers with a passion for choral music.

Its repertoire consists of nearly 50 a cappella pieces, with the biggest emphasis on the works of
recognized composers of the 20th and 21st century. The choir is a regular performer of exuberant
American spirituals, enchanting Orthodox pieces, breath-taking arrangements of popular and folk
music, and it tops up its repertoire with many monumental vocal-instrumental forms (JS Bach, J.
Haydn, WA Mozart, J. Brahms, G. Mahler, J. Rutter, C. Orff).

Within 14 years of its existence the choir had the opportunity to frequently stage at both national
and international festivals and has won nearly 20 choral competitions. It has performed in over 10
European countries.

Since 2004 the Warsaw UT Choir has been conducted by Dariusz Zimnicki, DA, the pedagogue of the
Frederic Chopin University of Music in Warsaw. The assistant conductor is Justyna Pakulak and vocal
technique education of the choir members is run by Joanna Morawska.
