The group was founded by leading vocal soloists who share a passion and skill for interpreting the most demanding works by present-day composers. During their seven years in existence, the vocal sextet released two albums, recorded music for two others, presented the world premieres of 28 compositions (including miniatures, larger a cappella forms, vocal–instrumental pieces, and works for voices with orchestra as well as nine different song cycles), performed in concert at festivals and at the invitation of leading cultural centres, including most of Poland’s philharmonics. 

proMODERN has won four Polish music industry Fryderyk awards: in the Choral, Oratorio and Opera Music Album of the Year category and for Best Recording of Polish Music for their debut album Where Are You? Pieces from Warsaw (2015) as well as for Contemporary Music Album of the Year and Best Recording of Polish Music for their second album, proMODERN Shakespired (2018). A composition by Philip Lawson, written on a commission for the group, reached 20,000 streams on Spotify.
