The Slovene Octet is considered to be the most representative Slovenian male vocal chamber ensemble. In the course of its seventy years, it has performed on almost all major Slovenian and international concert stages, including Ljubljana Festival on several occasions. The ensemble unites artistic affinity and the work of numerous individuals who have through the years also helped create an example for others, while the concert will honour 70 years of singing by past generations. The programme will feature songs that have been either adapted or specially written for the ensemble. They have been specially prepared and dedicated to the octet by composers who have left an important mark on Slovenian music in the 20th century. The octet sings both folk and classical Slovenian songs with special fervour on numerous stages in Slovenia and around the world. The octet’s repertoire is extremely broad and diverse as it includes works from the Renaissance to folk songs of many different nations, and from classicism and romanticism to contemporary works, many of which were written or adapted especially for it.
