As part of our late-night Evocations concert, the exceptionally talented Ingenium Ensemble (Slovenia) will perform a serene and ethereal programme in the beautiful surrounds of Cork’s North Cathedral.

“Their talent and wonderful sound is striking!”
(Katarina Henryson – The Real Group)

Ingenium Ensemble is a vocal ensemble of six singers from Ljubljana (Slovenia). The group was founded in 2009.

In May 2014 they received the most extra prizes of the International A Cappella Competition in Leipzig – the audience award and the special award (presented by the host group Amarcord) for best unamplified a cappella group and the best performed unamplified song. In August 2014 they won the vocal group category and the renaissance category and got two first prizes in the international competition Polifonico in Arezzo (Italy). They also received the highest score of the entire competition. In November 2014 they won both, the secular and profane category and also received the public award in prestigious international choral competition in Tolosa (Spain). In 2014 they released their first musical album “Ingenium”.

In January 2015 Ingenium Ensemble received the Golden Emblem for outstanding achievements in vocal music by JSKD (Public Fund of Slovenia for Cultural Activities).

The ensemble mostly performs madrigals and motets from renaissance period, arrangements of Slovenian folk songs and new contemporary pieces composed by the young Slovenian authors. The main purpose of the ensemble is presenting rarely performed or even unknown masterpieces, promoting the young composers and growing in quality of the sound and performance itself.

The Ingenium Ensemble singers are: Blanka Čakš (soprano), Petra Frece (mezzo-soprano), Blaž Strmole (tenor), Domen Anžlovar (tenor), Matjaž Strmole (baritone) and Ambrož Rener (bass).
