Enjoy the uplifting sounds of the Canadian Croatian Choral Society’s sixth anniversary concert. Under the baton of Artistic Director Edward J. Mavrinac, this recording includes a heartwarming tribute to some of Croatia’s old cities, including popular, well-known and loved songs honouring Zagreb and Varazdin, beautifully moving sacred songs with vocal solos and piano performances. The concert features performances by a trio of gifted young siblings and an enthralling rendition of Gershwin’s Summertime.
A rousing vocal and instrumental arrangement of Beethoven’s Ode to Joy sung in the Croatian language ends this diverse CD. You’ll find yourself humming along to this ever-popular melody with the audience!
