The NFM Choir was founded by Andrzej Kosendiak in 2006 as a resident ensemble of the Wrocław Philharmonic, which in May 2014 was restructured into the National Forum of Music. Agnieszka Franków-Żelazny has served as artistic director ever since the choir’s inception. Over a short period, the choir became a leading ensemble on the Polish choral scene. The NFM Choir has earned esteem by both expanding a rich a cappella repertoire and performing great oratorios, operas and symphonic music. The list of collaborating conductors includes such excellent names as Giovanni Antonini, Benjamin Bayl, Bob Chilcott, Gabriel Chmura, Ivan Fischer, José Maria Florêncio, Robert Hollingworth, Tõnu Kaljuste, Jacek Kaspszyk, Stephen Layton, James MacMillan, Jerzy Maksymiuk, Paul McCreesh, Krzysztof Penderecki, and Benjamin Shwartz. Over a decade of activities, the NFM Choir has performed more than 300 concerts, appearing, among others, at the Barbican Centre and Royal Albert Hall in London, Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Philharmonie de Paris and Salle Pleyel in Paris.
