The choir association “Radcliffe” is one of the oldest and most famous female choirs in the USA. With its fifty singers, the troupe is given a glorious ovation, because of its great repertoire – from church and secular music of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, to masterpieces of Romanticism, plays of American composers and modern compositions of foreign folklore songs. In front of the audience was performed a master class of the Bulgarian folklore, leaded by the conductor Iliya Mihailov with the participation of the Chamber Ensemble of the choir “The Great Voices of Bulgaria”. The participation of the Bulgarian singers in this measure was possible, because of the support of the Bulgarian Musical Society. Bulgarian and American choristers sang together and their acquaintance will initiate one good partnership for the future, for certain.
