We are honoured to announce that Domen Križaj, alumnus of The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium (12th generation) won the second prize at the Neue Stimmen international singing copetition. The above mentioned competition, which takes place every two years, welcomes about 1.000 young talents from around the world and has marked the beginning of international careers for many participants. The best singers qualify for the final round in Gütersloh, Germany, where they present their skills in front of a high ranking jury, intendants, agents and representatives of the music industry.
Domen has already had an outstanding career as a young singer. It all started in St. Stanislav’s Youth Choir of The Diocasan Classical Gymnasium and later with his incredible juggling between two university studies, namely at the Faculty of Medicine and The Academy of Ljubljana, both at University of Ljubljana. It seems the latter had the better of him. Domen has won several international awards and this year his music engagements include roles in Kaiser von Atlantis (V. Ullmann) and Madame Butterfly (G. Puccini), both in Theater Basel, Switzerland. Dear Domen, our heartiest congratulations on your outstanding achievement! You really deserve it. Well done! /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
