30th Anniversary of Mixed Choir "Libertas"
Following up the rich cultural tradition of the City of Dubrovnik, the founding of the Mixed Choir "Libertas" took place in 1980 on the initiative of Mr. Luka Obradović and maestro Ivan Dražinić, The Choir's first artistic leader and conductor of the Dubrovnik Symphony Orchestra, with whom the Choir had a close cooperation from the very beginning.
In 1994 professor Niko Baća took a place of the Choir leader for a short time. Professor Viktor Lenert, who has been in charge for the Choir's artistic leadership since 1995, enlarged its repertoire, particularly with "a capella" performances.
The music critics have written excellent reviews on the Choir's appearances, accentuating an increasing quality of its musical expression. The Choir's wide repertoire includes the pieces from the classical and secular opus.
These enthusiastic non professional singers hold the 1983 City of Dubrovnik Award as well as the 2000 Dubrovnik-Neretva County Award for promotion its tradition in the country and abroad.
