L’Asenzio, a mixed chamber choir, was founded in 1990, when several members severed themselves from a Prague children’s choir. Gradually, other singers joined in.

The choir currently has between 25 and 30 members, whose average age is 30 years. Since its very beginning, the choir has been conducted by Tomáš Pergel.

Apart from singing, what also binds the members of the choir together is their extraordinary friendship, which is tightened by regular weekly meetings (including family members) and many other activities that do not involve singing.

L’Asenzio’s repertoire spans from the Middle Ages to the 20th century. However, compositions from the 19th and the 20th centuries prevail. Some of the choir’s favourites include S. Rakhmaninov, F. Poulenc, J. Brahms, A. Pärt, Z. Lukáš and P. Eben. Often, the traditional repertoire is enhanced with folk songs or gospel music.

The choir is based in Prague. It holds several regular annual concerts in Prague and in other cities across the Czech Republic. It also takes part in festivals and competitions in the Czech Republic and abroad.
