Good old choir times

Few days ago my sister and I stumbled on several videos of our choir on YouTube. Silly me, I thought there were no videos of us there!
Obviously, I'm not the only one who misses and cherishes those good times. I used to sing in Sonja's choir for over seven years and had a pleasure to spend my time singing wonderful pieces of choral music with fantastic people and a great conductor. In those seven years the choir had traveled to Budapest (Hungary), to Choir Olympics in Bremen (Germany), to Riva del Garda (Italy), to Varna (Bulgaria) and to many places within our own country, including one unforgettable working summer vacation in Igalo (Montenegro). Times I've spent with the choir, on and off the rehearsals were one of the greatest time in my life, and I positively know that I am not the only one who feels this way.

So here is what we've found on YouTube:


This is a recording of the last two songs from "XV Rukovet" by Stevan Stojanovic Mokranjac, conductor is Danijela Hodoba Les, soloist is Neven Radulovic (probably in 2007). Photos in the slide show are from Choir Olympics in Bremen, Germany (in 2004). I'm on some of them.

This is a video from our concert in gymnasium "Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj" in Novi Sad, Serbia (in 2006). In this video we are singing a song "Veni sponsa Christi" by Sandro Filippi, conductor is Danijela Hodoba Les. (front row, second on the left)

This is the opening of the 9th Concorso Corale Internazionale in Riva del Garda, Italy (in 2006). Our choir was given the honor of singing the anthem of Musica Mundi at the opening of the festival.

Something unofficial for the end: members of the choir singing a folk song "Zvezda tjera meseca" in front of the fair in Bremen (where the competition took palce). This is a song our choir has sand after every event we participated in. It became something of a tradition.

This brings so many memories. I'm sure I have few more videos somewhere on my CDs. I'll have to upload them to YouTube too and share the good times with my dear friends and with the world.
