Scala is the indie-rock choir directed by the Kolacny brothers. Their music has mesmerized both the chorale and rock worlds. They perform many original songs but due to their peculiar and sometimes intimate covers of famous rock, metal songs and even dance music, their recognition has grown. Scala’s music is known world-wide from stealing the scene in the trailer of the Oscar-nominated Hollywood film; ‘The Social Network’ or later in the famous documentary about Kurt Cobain; ‘Montage of Heck’. Scala’s music has also been used in episodes of several popular TV series such as; ‘Downton Abbey’, ‘Homeland’ and ‘The Simpsons’.
In their early years the piano was the only instrument to accompany the voices. Nowadays the choir performs throughout the world, still with the piano in the middle of the stage but often also with drums, soundscapes and synthesizers. This combination along with creative choreography and a mesmerizing light show produce the overall show’s concept. They perform in various venues from small churches to well-known theatres and concert halls and at big festivals like Coachella, SXSW (USA) and Latitude (UK).
