The Sorbian Man Choir DELANY
The choir was established in 1971, in Konjecy/Cunnewitz, Lusatia. Its first conductor was the teacher Alfons Hrjehor and although the choir started out modestly with just a small number of members, it soon grew in both size and popularity. From the beginning, these artists sang their way into the hearts of the people, first through a series of local concerts followed by numerous engagements throughout Europe. On the occasion of its 10th anniversary the group adopted the name Serbski muski chór DELANY-Sorbian Men's Choir Delany. They performed concerts in Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic. In 1985, partnerships were established with choirs in the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Immediately after the period of political change in Germany, contacts were established with singing associations in the west part of the Federal Republic. In 1990 Pawol Šolta-Kulowski assumed the responsibility of artistic director. The choirs' extensive repertoire includes a wide range of Sorbian and German folk songs, compositions from oratoriums, sacral music and much more. At present the choir has 41 members aged 23 to 73 years old, who come from 14 different municipalities. The group has won numerous awards including the Cišinski-prize in 1984 and in 1989 the prize for art from Domowina - Union of the Lusatian Sorbs.
