Concert by the student choir Concordia Discors
Concordia discors, the Academic Choir of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences in Zagreb, is a mixed choir, founded in 2010. It consists of approximately a hundred members, students of Zagreb’s various faculties. In its brief history, the Choir has won several awards – two silver and twelve golden medals at competitions in Zagreb, Barcelona, Venice and Prague, where its members competed in the categories of classical and traditional folk repertoire in mixed, male and female ensembles. Dr. sc. Tihana Petrović-Leš initiated the founding of the choir, and the idea came to life thanks to Jurica Bošković and dr. sc. Damir Boras, the Faculty’s dean. Conductors Marina Jurković, Vinko Karmelić and Lobel Filipić are responsible for the Choir’s artistic work.
