Youth female choir, Skopje, Republic of Macedonia

Since 1972 the Youth female choir is one of the most recognizable features of the Youth Cultural Center (MKC) in Skopje. Performing a vast repertoire including authors from all musical styles and periods, with special attention to sacred music and Macedonian choir literature, this ensemble proves that even amateur singers can achieve highly professional results.




During this 45 years long period of existence the choir has won many awards and prizes from domestic and foreign festivals and competitions which promoted it in a true cultural ambassador of Republic of Macedonia. Only in the past five years, the choir won the highest awards (first prizes, special prizes and GRAND PRIX) on competitions in Croatia, Poland, Romania and Slovakia.




Besides its regular concerts and tours, the choir also participates in various projects with other ensembles, soloists and groups in promoting new and nonstandard repertoire thus encouraging young authors to write new choral and vocal-instrumental music. As a result, two CDs were published in the last five years with new music for choir, various instrumental ensembles and prerecorded tape.
