A 300-plus audience was on hand Sunday, May 6 as the Canadian Croatian Choral Society marked its sixth anniversary with its final spring concert at Oakville’s Holy Trinity Croatian Catholic Church.

Among them was Andrea Javor, consul general for the Consulate General of the Republic of Croatia, who commented on the ensemble’s impressive growth since its 2013 inception and commended the initiative to establish a youth choir to ensure that Croatian culture remains strong within the Canadian mosaic.

Also in attendance were Oakville Mayor Rob Burton and Oakville MPP Kevin Flynn, who read greetings from the Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport Daiene Vernile, who was responsible for the Ontario Trillium Grant for the choral society.

“We are so grateful to the Ontario Trillium Foundation for a wonderful grant, which has given us the opportunity to preserve Croatian culture through choral music, promote and share our culture and support talented young musicians,” said Canadian Croatian Choral Society president Mira Lorkovich Omura. “It has enabled us to expand programming and increase community performances.”

During the concert, plans were announced to create a youth choir this fall under the leadership of artistic director Edward Mavrinac.
