The choir's departments, contacts
The children in the Prague Philharmonic Children's Choir are divided, after testing, into several divisions that follow on from each other:
Kühňátka – preschool children from age 4
Preparatory choirs – A, AB, MV, M, VS and DSD
Concert choir – KO
Children are placed in the various divisions on the decision of the choirmasters and choirmistresses, the main criteria being their singing and musical ability, and with the age of the child also taken into account.

Rehearsals and absence notes
What should my child take to rehearsals?
Preparatory division and concert division: a stiff file for sheet music, with transparent A4 hole punched pockets.
Note: The Kühňátka do not need files, since they learn songs by ear. Their sheet music is mainly for the benefit of parents, who can then rehearse the songs at home with their children.
If you need to excuse your child from a rehearsal, please do so by e-mail only to the relevant address:
email@example.com – for the Kühňátka Holešovice (KHH), A, AB, MV, K, DSD and KO
firstname.lastname@example.org – for the M and VS divisions
email@example.com – for the Kühňátka Stodůlky (KHS)

Login for members
We have our own internet database of the members of the choir, with a record for each child being created after their application is submitted. Unicorn Systems, which administers the database, will then send you access codes and instructions for using the database in the Plus4U system. The system contains a calendar of events and rehearsals relating to your child, and you may also download music for rehearsals, amend your contact details and so on. All personal data in the database is handled in accordance with the law on the protection of personal data.
You can find more in Login for members section on this website.
For concerts and other appearances, choir members wear choir costumes. Each new member is required to borrow the costume from the choir, with each division having its own costume. The choir member is required to keep the borrowed clothing clean and in good order.
A list of choir dress items together with the price of borrowing them and the amount of the returnable deposit to be paid can be found down here. The document is unfortunately in Czech only.
