Founded in 1945, Radio Children's Choir is truly a school which educates the young generations through music and a ''nursery" of talents for the Romanian music scene. Here, Ileana Cotrubaș, Silvia Voinea, Voicu Enăchescu, George Crăsnaru, Roxana Briban, Roxana Constantinescu and many others took their first steps in their artistic career. The founder of the choir, the conductor Ion Vanica, followed by Elena Vicica, Eugenia Văcărescu Necula, Voicu Popescu and today Răzvan Rădos, contributed decisively to the artistic career of the ensemble.
In 2015, the Children's Radio Choir qualified - along with 8 other ensembles from around the world - in the final in Munich of one of the most prestigious international choral competitions: LET THE PEOPLES SING. The contest is a popular event in the vocal music circuit, under the auspices of the European Broadcasting Union.
The more than 50 participations in festivals, artistic tours and international competitions in almost all the countries of Europe, Japan, USA and Canada, brought to the ensemble Radio Romania distinctions and awards. Moreover, in 2004, the choir was honored to receive the title of "CULTURAL AMBASSADOR OF THE EUROPEAN UNION", awarded by the Federation of European Union Choirs.
The performances of the Radio Children's Choir go beyond a simple concert, the musical moments being completed by dramatic play, suggestive props and video projections. Recitals, a cappella concerts, contributions to the performance of vocal-symphonic masterpieces with the National Radio Orchestra, the Radio Chamber Orchestra, the George Enescu Philharmonic Orchestra, the Munich Philharmonic, the Bavarian State Orchestra - under the baton of great Romanian and foreign maestros Iosif Conta, Horia Andreescu, Christian Badea, Jing Wang, Lawrence Foster, Wayne Marshall, Zubin Mehta etc. - revealed the special interpretive qualities of the band.
