Times Staff Report

The Little Stars, a two-time world champion girls choir from Zagreb, Croatia, will perform a holiday concert Dec. 15 at the Croatian Center in Merrillville.

This exceptional all-girl choir from Eastern Europe, where it is known as Zvjezdice, is often compared to the Vienna Boys Choir from Austria, and members are known as cultural ambassadors of the European Union.

They will present a program of Christmas classics from Croatia and around the world. These elementary school girls sing in a variety of languages and have brought a renaissance to the art of an all-girls choir. They have performed throughout Europe and have twice been crowned champions at the Liangollen International Music Festival.

Admission standards to the choir are stringent. Every choir member must maintain an A-plus academic average in school despite spending several hours every day in rehearsal for a minimum of two years. Only by demonstrating a mastery of harmony, tonal resonance and diction is a candidate then accepted by a review board and the concurrence of Maestro Zdravko Sljivac. A choir member is then permitted the honor of singing in public.

Tickets for the Dec. 15 evening concert are $15 for adults and $7 for students, and are available by calling (219) 759-1101 or (773) 646-1099.
