As of February 16, 2021, Fuad Šetić took over the role of conductor and artistic director of the Mixed Choir “Proleter”.
After a break of two artistic seasons, this collaboration marked Šetić’s return to working with Sarajevo amateur choirs.
During its more than a century-old history, the “Proleter” choir was led by some of the greatest conducting names in Bosnia and Herzegovina such as Mladen Pozajić, Julio Marić, etc., and the choir has become one of the most recognisable symbols of the city of Sarajevo.
The Workers’ Cultural and Artistic Association “Proleter” Sarajevo was founded in 1905 and the choir was the first form of its activity.
As one of the most famous and most awarded societies in Sarajevo, but also beyond, with its activities “Proleter” seeks to preserve the tradition and rich cultural heritage of Bosnia and Herzegovina. In addition to that, it pays special attention to its activities in the field of arts.
“Proleter” has participated in numerous festivals throughout Europe, North Africa, Asia and is the holder of many festival awards. Furthermore, the Association is the holder of the highest awards of the city of Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and a large number of countries across Europe and the world.
In addition to choir, “Proleter” has expanded its activities to a folklore ensemble, brass band, drama club, folk orchestra, ballet school, modern dance school, etc.
