Music Orchestras

Choir

Orchestra

The SCA "Oplenac" orchestras are the most vital and irreplaceable foundation of all of the organization's activities as music is the cornerstone for the Serbian dances and songs. Our Folk Orchestras perform with the dance ensembles and follow them to all performances and trips. The quality of the music follows the quality of the dances.
This is why the combination of our music performers with the dance choreographies create a powerful statement to the audience.

Choir

The Choir of SCA Oplenac is an important and irreplaceable component of the organization's scene performances. Besides dance and orchestral arrangement, the vocal contribution of the organization's choir completes and enriches the overall impression of the performance. The President of Serbia-Montenegro acknowledged SCA Oplenac with the highest recognition for preserving the Serbian culture and reaching out to the Serbian community.
