The Choral Society of Moravian Teachers ( PSMU ) was established in 1903 by Ferdinand Vach, a composer and teacher at the Paedagogium ( teachers training college ) in the town of Kroměříž, where he succeeded in forming an outstanding students' choir. He set as a goal to raise the level of contemporary choral singing and to clear it of provincial dilettantism. Thus he laid foundation of modern choral interpretation based on technical perfection, deep inwardness, as well as penetrating into the style of the work. This required an entirely new conception of work - singing by heart, a high vocal cultur and progressive dramaturgy. The high quality of the choir contribute to enrichment of Czech national musical culture and stimulated rise of new amateur choirs as well as new choral works by Czech composers.
