Kantiléna, sbor dětí a mládeže při Filharmonii Brno, přípravné oddělení Magdalenka Magdalenka is the youngest preparatory department of Kantiléna, a choir of children and youth at the Brno Philharmonic, whose patron is from 2013 a world-famous singer, former member of Kantiléna, Magdalena Kožená. The department Magdalenka attends children aged 4-8 years, from where they go to the older preparatory department - Kantilénka. From 2011 are children lead to joyful interest in music and nonviolent acquisition of proper vocal habits in the playful manner of chorus master Veronika Novosád. She shows the children a beautiful world of rhythms, harmony and melodies. Dramaturgically Magdalenka deals with classical children's choral literature and folk songs. The children from Magdalenka cooperated on the performance of Bethlehem at the theatre Husa na provázku or the contemporary composers' works by Tomáš Pálek (CD Skřítek Bambulín) or the Zdeněk Král's musical cycle (Magdalen).
She began as a choirmaster of the mixed choir Musica animata, and the desire to know brought her after the grammar school to Brno to the Faculty of Education and the Academy of Old Music at the Faculty of Arts of the Masaryk University. These experiences naturally resulted not only in pedagogical activities but also in the expansion of musical-educational horizons within the framework of doctoral studies. At the faculty she devoted herself to Baroque interpretation, which, among other things, continues and she cooperates with ensembles interpreting old music: Czech Ensemble Baroque, Ensemble Versus, Ars Brunensis... She spent the year 2018 with children in the company of the Skřítek Bambulín (the elf named Bambulín) about which Magdalenka recorded the CD of composer Tomáš Pálka. This is the first CD of the youngest department of Kantiléna in the history.Back to the list of ensembles
