Welcome to OctOpus Vocalis Ensemble website!
OctOpus Vocalis ensemble
consists of eight singers and an artistic leader who occasionally
joins in the singing. The repertoire of the ensemble is not limited to any period or genre. Given the small number
of singers, we have two main areas of interest, the first one is Renaissance and Baroque music and the other is
contemporary music of the 20th and 21st centuries. On top of that we perform high-quality pop and jazz music, often
transcribed for us by Petr Janovský, our bass singer.
Music and singing have been our life’s passion. Most of us first met in a children’s choir Kantiléna led by
Ivan Sedláček and, in fact, we have been singing together since then. We have participated in all sorts of musical
projects either as members of large choirs, chamber ensembles or soloists. The idea to establish a chamber ensemble
arose from our desire to experiment with compositions written for larger choirs and interpret them with a smaller
number of singers.
OctOpus Vocalis regularly gives their own concerts and participates in music festivals in the Czech Republic.
