The Adam Mickiewicz University Academic Choir has been continuing the choral tradition of the Wielkopolska region for almost 60 years. The choir was founded in 1966 in Poznań, the city with a long history, connecting modern art with traditional Polish choral music. Thanks to music theaters and festivals, Poznań gained the reputation as "the city of choirs". The choir is composed of like-minded people from different backgrounds, sharing their true passion, high abilities and honest readiness to sing.

AMU choir was conducted by the exceptional Jacek Sykulski, the well-known Polish composer, arranger and conductor. Since autumn 2011 the conductor is Beata Bielska, a longstanding assistant of Sykulski and graduate of the Choir Music and Conducting Department of Academy of Music in Poznań. During the numerous concerts conducted by Beata Bielska, the choir has exhibited the full range of possibilities of the perfect instrument - the human voice. The group performed in almost all European countries as well as the USA, Ecuador, Vietnam, Canada, Bolivia, China, Japan and Taiwan. They also performed together with famous artists such as: Placido Domingo, Aleksandra Kurzak and Andrea Bocelli.

The Academic Choir’s performances withhold the rich Polish tradition of choir singing. The main artistic goal that the conductor and all the singers would like to convey is to bring joy to people through their common passion for singing. Music from heart to heart!
