DATIO CHOIR has been performing in Secondary School of St. Agnes of Bohemia in Odry since the school year 2003/2004. Datio performs mostly spiritual music from various periods as well as contemporary songs with a band accompaniment. The choir has become a representative musical body both in school and in Odry region. Datio took part in a lot of festivals and was awarded in competitions organized by Secondary schools of Pedagogy, e.g. in Prachatice (2014) and Karlovy Vary (2015). In October 2015 the choir went on its longest tour round the Baltic States (Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia). Currently, Datio consists of 30 girls. Recently, modern songs by both Czech and world famous composers have widened its repertoire in a significant way.
