Bratislava Music Agency

The roots of our choir date back to the 1980 when the choir was established. In 1990 at the time a student at the Academy of Music, Anica Smrtnik born Stele took over the conductor’s baton, and she holds it ever since. The abundance of choir members fluctuated over the years from less than 18 up to a maximum of 50 singers. Currently choir consists of 30 members. Every year we participate in choir competitions at home and one international, where we almost never get back without the highest awards. We gladly respond to any invitations to various municipal celebrations, exhibitions, anniversaries and other throughout Slovenia. Mixed choir Odmev is a choir with tradition, although this is not confirmed by the average age of members (32 years), but by the sound image. In our repertoire you can find the old folk songs in more recent arrangements, church songs, Negro spiritual and classical and contemporary challenging competition scores. We always like to accept new singers among ourselves, who are not judged by their musical education, because we sing with our heart and for our soul.
