In this context, it has been involved in organizing a Choral Academy for students of singing, a project aimed at enabling young artists to acquire practical skills through work with a professional vocal ensemble; and with focus on young children, running a series of educational concerts and a programme of on-the-spot singing workshops in schools.
It has been focusing its work both on the semiological interpretation of Gregoriant chant according to the earliest neumatic sources from the 10 century, and on presentation of the original Bohemian plainchant tradition, including early polyphony.
Thanks to ensemble’s intensive study of medieval sources, its programmes also include a number of unique, newly discovered compositions dating from the 13 centuries.
The Schola has co-operated in various projects with a whole range of top-notch Czech as well as foreign interprets (Petr Eben, Jiří Bárta, Jaroslav Tůma, Iva Bittová, Choeur gregorien de Paris, Boni pueri, Musica Florea, the ensemble of Japanese Buddhist monks Ohara Gjosan shomjo kenkju-kai, Varmuža’s Dulcimer Music Band, Jeaner Philharmonie, etc.).
The ensemble belongs to foremost world interpreters of medieval sacral music.
Apart from these commitments, the PPC engages in a number of its own projects.
Since 2011 it has organized its own choral concert series in Prague, with a programme focused notably on presentations of less well known choral works, either a cappella or with chamber-scale instrumental accompaniment.In the course of the choir´s long history since its foundation in 1935, it has been directed by a succession of some of the most distinguished Czech choirmasters (including among others Jan Kühn, Josef Veselka and Pavel Kühn).Since 2007 its principal choirmaster has been Lukáš Vasilek.The large gamut of repertoire offers also contemporary music (see eg.the CD Antica e moderna) – some compositions of young Czech composer generation have been written rightly for the Schola and were premiered in its interpretation.Patrick Grahl attended master-classes held by Peter Schreier, Gotthold Schwarz, Gerd Türk, Ileana Cotrubaş and Prof.
