The choir Ivan pl. Zajc was founded in 1983. The choir has a large repertoire of musical pieces (from a cappella to oratories) composed by the old masters of polyphony as well as the contemporary ones. Around sixty pieces of music written by Croatian composers have been premiered by this choir. The choir has also performed a large number of the famous pieces from musical history, as well as new and rarer pieces, together with many Croatian and foreign artists and ensembles. It has performed at various festivals (Cork-Ireland, Prijedor-Bosnia and Herzegovina, Lima-Peru, Istanbul-Turkey, and others) where it received many remarkable awards. In 2004 it was awarded the Zagreb City Award for the 20th anniversary of its existence, and in 2011 it was awarded the first place in its category on the 1st Competition of Croatian Traditional Vocal Music. The choir has released two CDs (Ave Maria and Negro Spirituals) and also many other CDs and DVDs where it performed with other artists and groups.

Zlatan Sindicic is one of the founders and a resident conductor of the choir. He has led the choir to an enviable level of interpretation that resulted in numerous achievement awards and invitations to performances all over Croatia and Europe.
