Alois Motýl (*1929 †2013)
He was born in Želechovice nad Dřevnicí, a village near the town of Zlín, on September 3, 1929, with ancestry of local church organ masters. Until recently his family held this traditional post from 1890. In 1943–1948 he studied to play the piano and organ at the Academy of Music in Brno. Following his graduation, he deepened his music and pedagogic education assisted by Vilém Petrželka, Jaroslav Kvapil and Josef Blatný.

In 1962 he founded and until 1994 directed the Šumperk Children's Choir. Afterwards, until June 2012, he remained with the choir as a voice instructor. Thus, his continuous work spans exactly 50 years. He led the choir to quickly become an internationally respected ensemble. His diligence, dedication and also his distinctive style of humor influenced over 2000 little singers who ever joined the choir ranks. Many regularly and happily return and express an everlasting appurtenance.
In similar way, he influenced several generations of children's choirmasters in the entire Czech Republic. Joined by many of his friends from within this sphere, he participated in an informal movement which pursued the closest possible cooperation among children's choirs, their leadership and affiliated community of music composers.

In between 1989 and 2001, there were seven international festivals of children's choirs Krajina zpěvu (the Country of Singing) held, all achieved due to his idea and endeavor.
