Besides their regular repertoire the performed also two compositions by Slovene composers,: Blagri (The Beatitudes) for treble voices by Damijan Močnik and for the encore Igraj kolce , a folk-song arrangement by Jakob Jež. Both composers were present at the concert, and Močnik also held a short rehearsal with the choir two hours prior the concert. 
We can just be thankful to the sensitive choir’s director and well-responding chorus’s members that they also performed two songs by Slovene composers, thus having more cordial response by the audience. It’s a good recipe: Whenever a choir travels abroad, a song by host country composer will open more hearts. Not many a-visiting choir knows such simply recipes, gladly Women’s Voices Chorus from Nort Carolina knows "how-to-cook". Thanks ladies and dr. Friedman for that.
 

As one member from Women’s Voices Chorus wrote after the concert on their blog: "It was wonderful, stupendous, fantastic. We had a really good audience, the place was packed, and we got a (minor) standing ovation and flowers for Allan before we even got to the encore. I’m still psyched about it! Eeee!"

 

Concert was organized by IMAGO SLOVENIAE / PODOBA SLOVENIJE .
