The association of students named after a significant Slovak theologian, patriot and cultural figure, J. M.

ICHTHYS - Academic Choir

Since 2003, the Evangelical Lutheran Theological Faculty serves as a home for the Academic Choir Ichthys. The word Ichthys is an acronym of the Greek phrase IESOUS CHRISTOS THEOU HYIOS SOTER, which means Jesus Christ Son of God Savior. We try to make this early Christian creed the center of our faith. The choir performs under the artistic direction of the conductor Katarina Juriková. ICHTHYS has performed in many events of the University as well as in church events in Slovakia and abroad. The repertoire of the choir consists mainly of hymns and sacred music, choral arrangements, spirituals and carols. ICHTHYS produced a CD in 2008 entitled “Look upon us, o Lord” (Vzhliadni na nás).
