The Telegraph

... Carmina Slovenica (under conductor Karmina Šilec) is a phenomenon in itself  … with its mesmerising combination of steely discipline with exuberant physicality... the sound is often the hard-edged chesty, but the young singers can shift to clean, honey-toned romanticism or glassy polytonality in the blink of an eye …

TOP 10

It is of no less importance that the young consider the choir not as a competitive machine, but rather as time for singing and having fun.

A special bond exists among us. It is about communication through learning of new songs from all over the world, learning of new choreographies, singing techniques, about working together and socializing while developing our inborn potentials which are being refined by experience we gain.

There is no halfway of doing things and every detail is important, even if it does not look like that. It is all about love of music, will, joy and friendship. As a whole we are able to connect with those who listen to us and also hear what we want to say …

Our choir represents happiness, enjoyment, socializing, friendships, the exploring of other countries, education, and millions of other things …

There is only one passion that exists in our choir. A passion for singing. Together we make up a harmonious and organized choir, full of various friendships, and that is why we are so good!

This choir is something special. What joins us is friendship, kindness, patience, understanding, a desire to learn new beautiful songs, and success, of course, which is part of it all.

I joined this choir by accident but it became a part of me and I cannot imagine my life without music any more.

This choir gave me so many beautiful moments which will stay in my memory forever.


I would wake up at 4 a.m. for this choir, if I had to.

Singing in the choir unites us. We are all different and equal at the same time.
