In Celebration of the Human Voice - The Essential Musical Instrument
The Vorosmarty Grammar School , celebrating their 20th anniversary next year, has run special music classes from the beginnings formed and built up by Miklos Csik. The beautiful concerts and competition achievements of the first 15 years were all attached to his name. In 2005 Sandor Kabdebo took over the direction of the music classes and became the conductor of the girls' choir as well. Since its formation the choir has been awarded the "Choir of the Year" title several times and among other achievements won First Prizes at the International Choir Competitions in Giessen in 2005, Celje 2009 and Neerpelt 2010. The choir regularly performs at national choral events and is an active participant in the cultural life of Budapest. Their work was acknowledged with the For Budapest Prize in 2006.

Review: Legendary Hungarian composer Zoltan Kodaly's 150-odd vocal works created a second golden age in the history of choral music and a flowering of the choral singing movement. These 16 songs, performed by Hungarian Radio and Television Chorus, Conducted by Janos Ferencsik, with Budapest 'Kodaly Zoltan' Girls' Choir and Hungarian Army Male Chorus, are filled with national fervor and love of liberty and peace: 'To the Hungarians,' 'National Song,' 'Soldier's Song,' 'Battle Song,' 'Wish for Peace-the Year 1801,' 'The Hymn of Liberty,' 'Geneva Psalm CL,' 'I will go look for Death,' 'Orphan am I,' 'Songs from Karad' and 'The Peacock'-these are inspirational, dramatic songs, some of them national anthems. 'Choral Music of Kodaly 3' beautifully shows the power of one of the most brilliant 20th century composers to create a new renaissance of spirited choral groups and music.
