Dénes Szabó began his studies in Nyíregyháza at Musical Elementary School No. 4, where he later organised the school's choir. The children's choir was the first to be formed and became one of the country's best choirs in 1975. It took on the name Cantemus (let's sing) - after the choral work by Lajos Bárdos - in 1978, following the first international successes. The further sections of the choral family were formed later: The Cantemus Boys' Choir (1981), in which the youngsters still sing the soprano and alto roles, while the older boys sing the tenor and bass parts; the Pro Musica Girls' Choir (1986) was created by returning graduates who are former members; and the Cantemus Mixed Choir (1998) comprises erstwhile Cantemus singers who wish to continue singing alongside their day jobs. The youngest member of the Cantemus family is the Cantemus Youth Mixed Choir (2004). The charismatic conductor and teacher Dénes Szabó, who founded the group and has led it with unbowed enthusiasm for decades, will introduce his choirs and the high-quality work they do together, as well as revealing the joy and community value of singing together.
