The modern music Ensemble Gaudeamus is a part of the Gaudeamus Chamber Choir, which was founded in 2002. The ensemble is comprised of world-class musicians and students, all of whom are recipients of awards and recognition both in Slovenia and abroad. It has premiered over 40 works by Slovenian composers, as the ensemble has made its primary mission to perform Slovenian music.
