SINGING SLOVENIA - May 2017 - a tour with singing visiting several places in Slovenia, meeting local singers and choirs, short walks, comfortable half board accommodation, meals, transport within Slovenia - doesn't include budget airline tickets which you purchase separately. Singers will join us from our local choirs and from further afield.
My love of Slovenia started when Sedbergh, the town where I live, became twinned with Zrece in Slovenia. The BBC made a film about it: "The town that wants a twin" showing how the policman stayed with our policeman, the baker with the baker, the post mistress with our postie - and of course the singers sang with ours.
Since we were twinned in 2005 we have had over 30 exchanges between singers - and also with town bands, school students, football teams and soon even a Bridge card playing society with ours in Sedbergh.
You can read about the twinning exchanges on http://sedberghinternational.blogspot.com/ - look under music for the singing exchanges organised by Lakeland Voice - or join us on any of our tours of Slovenia or here when we welcome choirs from Slovenia to visit and sing with our singers - with workshops, pub singing, concerts, walks and melodious international conviviality!
Our choirs Lakeland Voices and the Cautley Carollers also sing Slovenian songs - especially the carols at Christmas which have become firm favourites. You can see and hear me teaching the parts of these carols on www.youtube.com/Lakelandvoices and see videos of visiting Slovenian folk choirs (and ours visiting Slovenia) on www.youtube.com/Davidburbidge
Lep pozdrav iz Sedbergha in upam se vidimo kmalu.
