Choir Chorus Iglovia was founded in Spisska Nova Ves in 1988. Over the years over 145 singers have come and gone, some of whom are still singing in the choir today, and were members at the founding of the choir. From 1990 there has always been a Christmas concert held in the pre-holiday period entitled Silent Night and apart from this there have been sporadic spring concerts always with different guests. The choir has more than 180 titles in its archive from which they are able to perform 140 after a short rehearsal whenever needed. The repertoire of the choir is mostly directed towards world and church songs, songs from all styles and periods. It is however mostly concerned with polyphonics and covers Slovak folk songs. The mixed choir CHORUS IGLOVIA was invited and has performed at various events at town, other regions in Slovakia as well as abroad. It performed in Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Poland, Latvia, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary and Italy. Since 2012 the conductor and artistic leader of the choir is Ms Marta Nováková. Singing in the choir, from the very beginning, have been people from all kinds of professions, with various interests, men, women, young and old. All of us have a love of choral singing. So let's hope that this love of choral singing shall continue to hold us together and we can find further like-minded people and companies who will choose to support this wonderful pastime.
Ms Marta Nováková graduated from Košice Conservatory, piano and also from the Faculty of Education of P.J. Safarik University in Prešov. She has been in the choir world since 1982, in the beginning as a singer of youth and academic choirs, later in 1992 – 1997 as a founder of the Children´s choir of Spišská Nová Ves. From 1993 she has been a member of the mixed choir Chorus Iglovia (formerly known as „Geolog“) where she has had a role of the second conductor since 2001 together with being a choirmaster and a soloist. From 2012 she has been the first conductor and the art director of the choir. With Chorus Iglovia she was awarded several bronze, silver and golden prizes at international competitions (Russia, Poland, Czech Republic) and at home. Currently she is a respected choir professional because she is able to lead the choir to professional performances despite them being amateur singers. Chorus Iglovia performs about 10 times a year. The most important ones are the „Silent Night“ Christmas concerts where they cooperate with different guest choirs from Slovakia or from abroad each time.Back to the list of ensembles
