St. Stanislav’s Youth Choir of The Diocesan Classical Gymnasium under the conductorship of Helena Fojkar Zupančič visited Estonia from 31st July to 4th August 2018, where it represented Slovenia at the biggest European choral convention. Being organized every three years, this unique festival usually brings together more than 4000 singers, conductors, composers and choral managers from Europe and elsewhere for 10 days of singing enjoyment. It was an honour for the choir to be presented with the festival flag, which was brought to Slovenia, as Slovenia is the hosting state of the next Europa Cantat 2021.
The prime event was the concert given in Talin with some prominent guests, such as the honorary consul of The Republic of Slovneia in Estonia Tõnis Tamme, deputy major of Ljubljana Dejan Crnek, many conductors, composers and choral singers from all over the world. »Majestic, unforgettable, mastery and inspiring …were only some superlatives used by the audience to describe the above mentioned concert in Talin. It is every singer’s wish to sing in front of the audience that breaths with the choir from the first to the last chord and rewarding it with a loud and long applause. It was an absolute joy for the girls to be a part of this heartwarming singing event. See you all at the next Europa Cantat in 20121 in Ljubljana, Slovenia! /Lily Schweiger Kotar/
