Marija Vidovic distinguished Croatian soprano singer
Grace, sweetness and mellowness, as well as authenticity, charisma and above all elegance (Francisco Araiza)
I am especially pleased to introduce to you a young singer, Marija Vidovic. In describing her voice, the words that come spontaneously to me are qualities like grace, sweetness and mellowness, and when it comes to her personality, I think of authenticity, charisma and above all elegance.
All of those qualities amount to something special, something which anyone who loves music and the vocal art is always looking for but seldom finds: magic. I have often been witness to the spell she casts on her audience when performing. Allow yourself to be enchanted!
Francisco Araiza, Mexico City, Professor of singing at the State University of Music and Performing Arts in Stuttgart, Germany
