sings Thomas Jennefelt: Noviori ani
“This song is about being one as a choir”, says Tina Jeglič, a soprano in the St. Stanislav’s Girls’ Choir. “Being exact, confident, and trust in yourself that you will sing the right note. During the learning process, we had so much fun! Especially when we added the choreography, which emphasized the story we wanted to convey.”
