Czech Children’s Choir exceeds own WCG sponsorship objectives
The World Choir Games 2018 in Tshwane, South Africa are now within reach: The IUVENTUS, GAUDE! Children’s Choir from Jablonec nad Nisou (Czech Republic) has met their sponsoring objectives regarding their participation in the world’s biggest international choral event and are ready to set off to the 10th anniversary of this INTERKULTUR event.
IUVENTUS, GAUDE! [Youth, Rejoice!] was founded in 2015 at the Primary School of Art in Jablonec nad Nisou and is today being conducted by Mr. Tomáš Pospíšil. The choir consists of the preparatory choirs: „Pueri, gaudete!“ (age 6), „Liberi, gaudete!“ (age 7-8), „Boys Choir“ (age 7-12) and the „Amici, gaudete!“ (age 9-11). The main choir „IUVENTUS, GAUDE!“ consists of children aged 11 to 18 with more than 190 girls and boys in the choirs altogether.
The broad repertoire of the choir presents the works from the Baroque era as well as contemporary music, folksongs, swing, spirituals, musicals and others as Tomáš Pospíšil intends to show to the children the beauty and quality of music of different ages and different cultures. In the INTERKULTUR world ranking list „Iuventus, gaude!“ is currently listed on the 20th place in the category Children’s and Youth Choirs.
Numerous ideas regarding a possible sponsoring for the World Choir Games trip were listed by the choir on a respective website and eagerly purchased or donated by their extensive fan community. Each time the choir participated in the World Choir Games so far, they returned home with gold medals and together with this strong support from their home country their 4th participation in South Africa is bound to be likewise successful.
