Choir CV

The Choir "Echo" was founded in 1978 under the leadership of professor Dragoljub Sarkovic. Besides its many concerts throughout Serbia organized by Jeunesses Musicales, this at the time girls' choir participated regularly on the Annual Meetings of Belgrade Choirs, and was always considered to be one of the most successful ensembles. Its most significant tours were, among others: a ten days' tour through Germany and recording for the German television in the programme Musik kent keine Grenze that hosted some of the greatest artists of the time, participation on the most famous music festival in the world in Llangollen, Wales, England, concerts in the city of Arnhem in Netherlands and many others. At the time, the choir was conducted by Zorica Mitev, today chorus master of the Belgrade Opera. Due to technical problems, the choir was temporarily inactive during the 90s. It was however renewed in March 2007. Since then the now mixed choir "Echo" counting more than 40 members has successfully and in a short period held many admirable tours and concerts, such as: tour to Poland on the International Festival (July, 2007), participation on the Festival of Spiritual Music organized by the Holy Patriarchal See of Belgrade, a humanitarian concert in the Ilija M.
