The Kvítek choir was founded by Vladimír Petržilka, a choirmaster, in the town of Louny in 1976. Throughout its history Kvítek has cooperated with notable artists, orchestras and teachers not only in the Czech Republic, but also abroad. The Kvítek choir has received many notable prizes from home as well as from festivals in Belgium, France, Poland, Germany, Holand and the Republic of South Africa. Kvítek organizes traditional Summer concert and Christmas concert, weekend workshops and Autumn studio festival ´České středohoří´, takes part in home festivals as well as foreign concerts and festivals. In 2011 it celebrated its 35th anniversary. At present Kvítek consists of preparatory choir, children´s choir and mixed choir, all led by the founder´s daughter, Lenka Petržilková.
