Chamber Choir Emanuil

Valjevo, Serbia

Vanja Urošević conductor


Chamber choir "Emanuil" was founded in 2015 in Valjevo - a small town in western Serbia surrounded by beautiful nature, water and mountains. Valjevo is known by its traditional music, but also by its jazz scene and by its great and long tradition of choral singing. That’s why many music festivals take place there. The great enthusiasm of the conductor Vanja Urosević and the experienced choristers resulted in the success that choir "Emanuil" achieved in representing Serbia’s great traditions in religious and folklore music. With its individuality and originality, the choir "Emanuil" enchants the listeners and gives them insight into the national music as well as the music from the world. The choir "Emanuil" was awarded with eight medals, six of which are golden. In May 2016 and 2018 the choir has been awarded as the best choir of its category, and also as the best choir of the Festival in Bijeljina (Grand Prix). In 2017, at the Choir Fest in Serbia, "Emanuil" was the Absolute winner of the festival. Chamber choir "Emanuil" successfully took part in the music festival in Loreto, Italy, and in Preveza, Greece.

Vanja Urosević graduated from the Departmat of Music Theory and Pedagogy at the Music Academy in Belgrade in 2010. She leads the choir from its beginnings. Also, she founded and achieved high success with the Children’s choir "Hadži Ruvim".
