Eunoia Duo consists of flautist Barbara Spital and harpist Naja Mohorič. They met as pupils at the Fran Korun Koželjski music school in Velenje and performed together on various occasions while at the primary level. Barbara continued her training at the Ljubljana Conservatory of Music and Ballet as a pupil of Milena Lipovšek, while Naja completed her secondary musical education at the Fran Korun Koželjski music school in Velenje under Dalibor Bernatović, then continued as an undergraduate student at the Civica Scuola di Musica Claudio Abbado in Milan, directed by Irina Zingg. In the 2019/2020 school year they again began collaborating as master’s students at the Academy of Music of the University of Ljubljana. Barbara is taught by Karolina Šantl Zupan, while Naja has already earned her master’s degree summa cum laude under Mojca Zlobko Vajgl. The duo has performed together all over Slovenia, including at the Imago Sloveniae Festival and the presentation of Primož Kuret’s book Iz Parterja (From the Stalls), held by Slovenska Matica. They regularly receive further instruction from renowned Slovenian and foreign professors, and participate in national and international competitions, winning the highest prizes.
Schaka Brass consists of five young musicians from various parts of Slovenia, all of them graduates of the Ljubljana Academy of Music, who are united by their love of music, their enjoyment of communal music-making, and a sincere friendship. They began cooperating in the 2017/2018 school year at the Ljubljana Academy of Music under the guidance of Franc Kosem as the Schaka Brass quintet. They have also studied with other acclaimed brass performers such as Leonhard Paul (Mnozil Brass), Chris Coletti, and Marco Pierobon (Canadian Brass). They won a gold plaque at the national TEMSIG (Young Musicians of Slovenia) competition in 2019. The musicians are distinguished by their professionalism, reliability, and flexibility; their mission is to create a programme that is both of top quality and captivating for a broader audience. They now work for the Schaka musical society. The quintet consists of trumpeters Matej Kravcar and Dominik Rus, horn player Blaž Ogrič, trombonist Tine Plahutnik, and tuba player Rok Grubelnik.
