The Kikinda Singing Society was formed in 1998. The founder of the choir is professor Radivoje Braca Terzić who sought to continue the long tradition of choral singing in Kikinda. Over the past fourteen years, the choir has performed a great number of compositions, both sacred and secular. More than thirty evening concerts have been held, and the repertoire included works of domestic and foreign composers. During the course of all these years the choir has been invited to perform in many ways: in regional and international music conventions, as well as in competitive and revue choir festivals achieving remarkable success. The mixed choir Kornelije Stanković has performed twice in the traditional choir competition in Ruma (Silver Medal), in Timisoara, in the Niš Choral Festival and at major cultural events in Kikinda. In May 2008, the choir participated in the May Music Festival held in Bijeljina, where it was awarded the silver medal.

Since June 2010, the conductor of the choir has been Eva Aranjoš Francuski, a trained pianist. She has years of experience in music, teaching at music school, performing on the radio or television and working with choirs of different age groups.
