Fantasia Children's Choir

Vaslui, Romania

Vasile Negura conductor


Founded in 1995 at "Elena Cuza" Gymnasium in Vaslui, the choir had its debut in 1996. In a while the choir has attained a high level of vocal achievement and has transformed its performances into innovative and exciting artistic events. Fantasia has a broad repertory that goes from the rhythmic refinement of the sacred-religious music, throughout the gospel sounds and a bit of jazz, to the purity of traditional folk music. The enthusiastic exploration of international music ensures variety and freshness in the choir's repertory. They have won many awards on national and international competition such are: International Contest Balchik, Bulgaria (2012); International Youth Choir Festival Celje, Slovenia (2015); Intenational Contest Chisinau, Moldova(2015). They have toured Greece, France, Germany, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czechia, Belgium, and recorded several CD's. Now, the choir rehearses and works under the Children`s Palace of Vaslui.

The conductor is Vasile Negura. Born in Piatra Neamt in 1955, he studied music pedagogy and choral conducting at the "George Enescu" Academy of Music in Iasi. His work with choir was enriched by many years of experience as a singer in "Cantores Amicitiae", a remarkable choir of the Academy from Iasi. Committed to excellence in music interpretation, Vasile Negura deals with choral conducting very intensely: he has been awarded, in May 2000, with the special prize for the most talented conductor, by famous "Madrigal-Marin Constantin" Foundation, and in November 2015 in Chisinau-Moldova, for the best conductor at the festival. He is frequently a jury member at regional, national and international choral competitions. He was awarded with the title of "Citizen of Honor" of the Vaslui.
