We welcome boys aged 7-11 together with their parents to an organisational meeting of the Boys’ and Men’s Choir Pueri Cantores Olivenses on 11 March 2019 at 17:30 to Primary School No. 89 at ul. Szyprów 3, 80-335 w Gdańsku (Żabianka).


Pueri Cantores Olivenses is a boys' and men's choir of over a dozen talented boys and men. Established in 1972 by the brothers Bogdan and Jan Łukaszewski. With the warm support of Prelate Leon Kossak-Główczewski, then the parish priest  of the Arch-cathedral Basilica in Oliwa, and educator and composer Leon Łukaszewski, initially the Choir focused on signing at church celebrations. The Choir sang at such events as the visits of Cardinal Karol Wojtyła, Polish Primate Stefan Wyszyński, at mass and other celebrations at the Basilica in Oliwa and other Gdańsk Diocese churches. The Choir also sang at two masses during visits by Pope John Paul II in Poland: in Zaspa, Gdańsk, and at the Sopot Hippodrome. Soon, the Choir began a collaboration with Gdynia’s Musical Theatre on several productions, including Uciechy staropolskie [Old Polish Delights]) and the Baltic Philharmonic Orchestra on oratorios (including Mozart’s Requiem at the commemoration of the 10th anniversary of the massacre of the shipyard workers in Gdańsk and Gdynia in December 1970). The Choir also began to perform outside Poland. Its first foreign performance took place at the international festival in Loreto, Italy, in 1979, which ended with an audience with Pope John Paul II. Further invitations brought the Choir to Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Norway, Sweden and Switzerland.
