Romanian Radio Children’s Choir


Founded in 1945 by the conductor Ion Vanica, the Radio Children’s Choir was and still is a real institution of musical education for young generations, a valuable cultural establishment and a hothouse for the great stages of the world and for those in Romania as well. At the same time, the rich activity of concerts, recordings, tours and international competitions led the renowned ensemble to be recognized as a benchmark of the highest quality in children’s choir work in Romania and abroad. Over 150 participations in festivals, choir trips and international competitions in almost all European countries. The four tours in Japan (1974, 1977, 1991 and 1998) as well as those in the USA and Canada have brought the Radio Romania Ensemble valuable awards. In 2004, the choir was honoured to receive the title of “CULTURAL AMBASSADOR OF THE EUROPEAN UNION”, awarded by the Choral Federation of the European Union. The Radio Children’s Choir is currently under the direction of Răzvan Rădos.
