An Evening of Slovenian Music in Berlin
October 23rd, 2014
News from Berlin – This Saturday, October 25th, a Chamber Choir from Slovenia is coming to Berlin. They are organizing a concert at St. Elisabeth Kirche in Berlin’s Schöneberg region. The concert will take place at 5:30 PM after a holy mass in German. This event is also a great opportunity to introduce some of the Slovenian goods to guests. At the end of the concert, people will be able to get a taste of Slovenian wine and brandy as well as cheese from local farms in Slovenia. The concert is free and available for everyone to come and enjoy traditional Slovenian songs. The Slovenian Embassy in Berlin is also advertising the concert and giving them the support and recognition.
The Chamber Choir Musica Viva comes from Tolmin, a small town in northwestern Slovenia. It was formed in early 2006 and combines amateur singers from that particular region. They started the choir in order to contribute to an already rich singing tradition in the Primorska region in Slovenia. The choir consists of 30 members with a choir leader Erika Bizjak.
The choir usually holds concerts in Slovenia and will introduce some of the best traditional Slovenian songs to German visitors at the concert and also allow Slovenian expats in Berlin and around to stay in touch with Slovenian traditions.
