…Carmina Slovenica is the musical answer to Bausch's groundbreaking concept of Tantztheater… provocative pastich… the true highlight is the singing. Indeed, Šilec has helped to shape these young women into crack musicians…
Carmina Slovenica is about to set off on their second tour in the South African Republic. We will perform on stages in five cities: Pretoria, Potchefstroom, Bloemfontain, Drakensberg and Cape Town, carrying out a programme with Slovene music and contemporary music literature. Alongside the concerts, Carmina Slovenica will give workshops at universities in Pretoria and Potcheftroom as well as for a school of singing in Drakensberg, introducing Slovene music culture to participants. The tour is
part of the Attacca programmes that have established itself as an important concept of Slovene and international choral movement in the past ten years of their existence. Attacca shares the vision of the Songbridge international movement in that it strives toward bringing people together through music at the highest artistic level. Attacca has been maintaining and refreshing a rich tradition of Slovene choral singing, enriching it with experience by working with ensembles from various parts
of the world. The Attacca programmes have involved ensembles from Australia, Malesia, the USA, France, South Africa, Bulgaria and Slovenia.Attacca focuses particularly on performing contemporary Slovene literature and contemporary music literature of the partner countries, bringing together performers while performing music literature of their countries, from early to contemporary music of the highest quality, thus introducing tradition and modernity of the performers' cultural milieus. Apart
from demanding pieces from the international programme, the concert selection of Carmina Slovenica will involve works by Slovene composers Lojze Lebič, Jakob Jež, Marjan Šijanec, Alojz Srebotnjak and Uroš Krek. South African choral culture is one of the leading in the world choral movement. Several ensembles performing all around the world have regularly been acknowledged at international competitions and have received numerous top awards.
