Children’s Choir Choral


The children’s choir “Choral” at Varna Cathedral was founded in 1989 by Veselina Simeonova, choir director and music teacher. The repertoire includes school and choral literature for children. A turning point in the choir’s history was a trip to Moscow in 1995 and participation in a concert at the Gnessin Academy of Music there. A decisive contribution to the development and progress of the training was made by both the school and the church. The choir was able to make its debut in the church with a liturgy in 2003, and for about ten years a large part of its concert performances took place there. In the 2008/2009 school year, the choir broke away from the school structure and went its own way. Since then, the young singers have participated in many competitions and projects, including the national initiative “Bulgaria Sings” or the European Choir Games.
