We were formed on February 2, 2001. Shortly after that, we were awarded with the top prize at the international musical festival "Sea and Memories", Varna (May 2001). We received the special insignia of honour at the annual community center’s festivals of choral art. Practically every year we give a performance at the Hall of Composers, and as well as every year on the thirteenth of January, the birthday of Aleko Konstantinov, patron of the community center at the National Place of Culture. We also take part in radio and television broadcasts.

Rosi Yordanova is a Bulgarian musician. She won her first Academy Award as a composer of children's songs in the national competition for children and adolescent song. In parallel, she worked as a vocal pedagogue, pianist and choirmaster. In 1987 she made her first recording for Bulgarian National Radio and Television, together with the group “Flame”, which represented Bulgaria at the international festival “Rote lieder” in Berlin, Germany in February 1988. She has performed concerts in major halls such as the Friedrichstadt Palace in Berlin, the Volksbuehne Theater (Berlin) of Brecht and others. Later she wrote music for drama and puppet theater, as well as two Christmas musicals in 1995 and 1996. She emerged in 1996 and 1998 as a composer of popular music in the national contest “Song for Varna” and won second prize for the song, followed by another award-winning song in spring 1998. Over the years she has worked with established singers, musicians and writers in various projects, including Villi Kavaldjiev, Miro, Kotze Kalki, Vasil Naidenov, Margarita Hranova, Iliya Angelov, Petya Buyuklieva and Ivan Lechev. From 1996 till the present day, she has arranged songs by Rosi Yordanova, Alexander Petrov, Kamelia Kondova and others. In 2000 she established a training school for rock and pop. In 2007, Rosi Yordanova was invited to be a member of the international jury in the music contest “Zolotoy Ellat” Chisinau, Moldova.

The choir has made many appearances at festivals and concerts, where we have won the following prizes:

  • Absolute laureates at the festival “Tender feelings”, of Plovdiv, Bulgiaria
  • Winner at the festival “With Ari's songs”, Haskovo, Bulgaria
  • Great award at the festival “Golden chestnut”, Petrich, Bulgaria (2006)
  • And many others

Sofia is the capital and largest city of Bulgaria and the twelfth largest city by population in the European Union, with 1.4 million people living in the Capital Municipality. It is located in western Bulgaria, at the foot of Mount Vitosha, and is the administrative, cultural, economic, and educational centre of the country. Prehistoric settlements were excavated in the centre of the present city, near the royal palace, as well as in outer districts such as Slatina and Obelya. The well-preserved town walls (especially their substructures) from antiquity date back before the seventh century BC, when Thracians established their city next to the most important and highly respected mineral spring, still functioning today. Sofia has had several names in the different periods of its existence, and remnants from the city's past can still be seen today alongside modern landmarks.
