The members of the Stellatus Youth Mixed Choir are between fifteen and nineteen years old from the Vántus István Secondary School of Music in Szeged, Hungary. The students specialize in playing classical instruments or singing. This year the choir won the Gold Diploma and Certificate of Merit at the national “Young Choirs’ Qualifying Concert”. The repertoire of the choir contains various pieces by masters from the renaissance to the contemporary period.

Szeged is located on the banks of the river Tisza in the southern region of the Great Hungarian Plain and is called the “town of sunshine”. It is also a bustling town thanks to the students studying at the University of Szeged, and the Open Air Theatre in the summer, which attracts many tourists from Hungary and abroad. The symbol of Szeged is the Cathedral, also called the Votive Church, which was built in gratitude to God, when—after the destruction of the great flood in 1879—the town could be rebuilt and reborn with the help of some European capital cities.

Szilvia Balázs graduated in 2002 from the Secondary School Music Teacher and Choir Conductor Department of the Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music in Budapest. She teaches solfeggio and music theory, and conducts the choir in the Secondary Music School in Szeged.
