Dear friends of choral singing and our faithful listeners, we have just heard about the results of 24th Slovenian choral competition Naša pesem Maribor 2016. Our choir Viva reached 85.7 points and won the Silver award of the city Maribor! We are very pleased with our performance and the achievement.
We were competing with the following selection of songs:
- Vulc: Cantate Domino (video available below)
- Quaggiato: V Šmihelu no kajžico mam
- Da Victoria: Ave Maria
- Becker: Bleibe Abend will es werden
In two days of the competition 92 different compositions - 22 of Slovenian and 30 of foreign composers - were presented to the audience. Among them 7 novelties and 2 first performances and 6 songs of Slovenian Composers were performed. There were 25 Slovenian choirs and small singing groups in competition.
On this occasion Viva was singing in brand new uniforms, in which we will comfortably take our future challenges.
Vivat, crescat, floreat! :)
