When I read the program for Jitro, I thought that I might not be too thrilled with the concert.  This looked like “a bunch of little girls singing songs in foreign languages”.  SURPRISE!!! A great concert, sung with grace, vigor, and great skill.  Add to that a cowboy song and great arrangements of two American songs.  Four Stars out of four!!!!!!

E-Notes Extra…

It was a grand night for singing! Indeed, it was a night of pure, clear, disciplined, musical perfection! Jitro, the Czech Girl Choir that performed Saturday night, lived up to its reputation as the premier youth choir in the world. The audience expressed enormous pleasure and appreciation with extended applause and cheers. Jitro responded with three encores. Accolades poured out in abundance as Civic Music members and guests filed out of the auditorium. We welcome your comments!


A cell phone was found in the auditorium Saturday night. If you are the sad owner, please call the Civic Music office at 920-338-1801.

Jitro, Czech Girl Choir
Jitro, Czech Girl Choir

Jitro, meaning “daybreak” in Czech, is one of the world’s premiere youth choirs. Based in Hradec Kralove, a town in the Czech Republic, Jitro is an organization of 500 girls in seven preparatory ensembles, of which only the most talented 25 to 50 qualify to tour. For 35 years they have been admired the world over for their tone, intonation, and rich blend of sound and energetic vitality. A favorite in Europe, they broke through with United States audiences with a much-heralded appearance at the national conference of the American Choral Directors Association.
