The National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin" symbolises the Romanian and universal musical life. Since its founding by the legendary musician and conductor Marin Constantin (1925–2011) in 1963, the Madrigal Choir performed over 4,600 acclaimed concerts worldwide, considered an authentic Romanian cultural brand. It is one of the world standards of chamber choral music, recognised by its unique concept, defined by its specific sonority, stereophonic location on stage and impressive costumes. The Choir's repertoire is focused on the European Renaissance, Gregorian and Byzantine scores, traditional carols, and the compositions of classical or contemporary Romanian and universal creation.
Currently, the National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin" is a public institution of concerts of national importance within the Romanian Ministry of Culture. The Honorary Director of the ensemble is the renowned international conductor Ion Marin, and since 2014, the institution is managed by Emil Pantelimon. The principal conductor of the Madrigal Choir is Anna Ungureanu - a disciple and follower of the Maestro Marin Constantin, and since 2016, the second conductor is Cezar Verlan.
In November 2016, the National Chamber Choir "Madrigal - Marin Constantin" was officially recognised as an Ambassador of Freedom, Hope and Peace, receiving the "Jean Nussbaum and Eleanor Roosevelt" Award at the United Nations Palace in Geneva, during the Global Summit of Religion, Peace and Security.
The concert on the occasion of the 15th anniversary of the accession of Romania to the European Union and the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Romania and the Republic of Croatia.
