Choir "Volantes Soni"
PUT's "Volantes Soni" choir was established in 1999. Since its beginnings it has been under patronage of PUT's Centre of Culture. The choir brings together talented students, graduates and young members of staff from PUT's and other Poznan schools and universities, all of them have one thing in common - a passion for singing.
"Volantes Soni" performs during important events organised at Poznan University of Technology. The choir promotes the University at the same time enriching cultural life of Poznan by giving concerts at major scenes of the city.
The choir also takes part in numerous charity events in churches, hospitals, special schools and children's homes and is also involved in their organisation.
The choir's varied repertoire includes sacral music as well as versions of traditional folk and pop music. "Volantes Soni" takes up serious artistic challenges dealing with great vocal-instrumental forms such as „Missa Criolla” by Ariel Ramirez, „Quo vadis” by Feliks Nowowiejski, „Wesele lubelskie” by Tadeusz Szeligowski, Requiem d – moll by W. A. Mozart.
The choir often participates in numerous choral contests and festivals both in Poland and abroad (Czech Republic, Spain, Bulgaria, FYR Macedonia) and it fruits with many prizes.
A family-like atmosphere of the choir is "Volantes Soni"'s advantage of great value. It has already become a tradition – to welcome new music enthusiasts with a humorous ritual of admission to the choir's members. Artistic creative joy brought to the choir by every singer is also priceless. Since 2005 the choir has been conducted by dr Paweł Łuczak, a teacher from Ignacy Jan Paderewski Academy of Music.
