The CZKW Girls Choir was founded in Třinec in 2008, most of its members are former members of the Štývar's Children Choir Třinec. CZKW focuses especially on contemporary and medieval sacred music (gregorian chant and polyphony), also on contemporary Czech choral music and folk song arrangements.

In the past CZKW performed Loutna česká (The Czech Lute) by Adam Michna z Otradovic nine times. Since 2012 CZKW has performed premieres of Jan Nowak's choral works: Missa laetitiae et doloris, Podoby lásky (The Forms of Love) and Utichlé kameny (Muted stones) on poems by Stanislav Havlík, Již se přiblížil čas noční (Night time has already approached), Benedictus Dominus. Two parts of the Missa laetitiae et doloris performance were broadcasted by the Czech Radio Ostrava on Christmas Eve in 2013. CZKW also devotes itself to the works by Václav Štývar (1932-2013) and occasionally performs programmes of his songs.
