The Youth Choir of the Primary School Ferdo Vesel Šentvid pri Stični comes from a small Slovenian town, Šentvid pri Stični, known as the cradle of Slovenian choral singing. For 50 years, thousands of Slovenian choir singers from all over the country and abroad have been gathering there once a year to sing together at a mass concert. Besides their youthful vivacity and friendship, our choir members also share the joy and love for polyphonic singing. Our choir performs at school and local events and conducts annual concerts. In collaboration with the school drama and dance groups, we have already staged a couple of musicals. Moreover, the choir has achieved some great successes in various competitions. In May 2017, our choristers successfully performed at the regional choral competition and received a golden recognition award with distinction, together with two other recognitions. The greatest success has been achieved last year when the choir won the first place at the national competition of Slovenian youth choirs in Zagorje ob Savi and received three recognition awards, one being golden with distinction.
The choir leader, Simona Zvonar, completed her studies of musicology and Slovene language at the Faculty of Arts in Ljubljana, after completing the Secondary Music School in the capital. For the fifth year now, she has been teaching Slovene language and Music at the Primary School Ferdo Vesel in Šentvid pri Stični. She particularly enjoys her work with the Youth Choir, as the energy of the young is inspiring and their joy of singing is mutual. As the choirs’ leader at the Primary School Ferdo Vesel Šentvid pri Stični, she participates in important national choral events and competitions. In 2018, at the national competition of Slovenian youth choirs in Zagorje ob Savi, she received a special award for the best debut choir leader.Back to the list of ensembles
