The Viva Voce Choir was formed in 1995. Their repertoire consists primarily of Western European – Italian, Franco-Flemish, English, Spanish, French – vocal polyphonic pieces from the Renaissance, along with choral works from the 20th century. They often interpret sacred choral music from Gregorian chant to contemporary pieces.

The choir has performed many concerts around Hungary and Transylvania, and they have participated in choir competitions and festivals in Hungary (Budapest) and in the Czech Republic (Olomouc and Prague).

Balázs Csernyik was born in 1976. He has been the conductor of the choir since 2003. He graduated in choir conducting (1999) and church music (2003) at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music in Budapest.

Budapest is the capital of Hungary. Widely regarded as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, its extensive World Heritage Site includes the banks of the Danube, the Buda Castle Quarter, Andrássy Avenue, Heroes’ Square and the Millennium Underground Railway, the second oldest in Europe. Other highlights include a total of 80 geothermal springs, the world’s largest thermal water cave system, second largest synagogue, and third largest Parliament building. The collections of the Natural History Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts are also significant.
