Slavonice is reaching for the stars! / Slavonice oslnuji talentem!

Slavonice google imageSlavonice is a quaint little town of 2,500 inhabitants, just a few miles away from the Austrian border. Normally quite the quiet place, the town is now buzzing with excitement since the Slavonice choir was chosen to compete at the international music festival in Canada.

More of this exciting news (and how you can help) can be found here (click here).

CZ: Slavonice je malinke mestecko lezici na hranicich Moravy a Rakouska, ktere obyva kolem 2500 obyvatel. Normalne tu panuje pokoj a klid, ale v posledni dobe tu panuje naprosta vzrusuici atmosfera.

    What a tremendous accomplishment! Congratulations to all the children! Did they raise the rest of the money yet? If not, where do we send a donation?

    that is a great question! If you email Zuzana Koudova via her blog (link is embedded in the post above) I am sure she will tell you.
    I also shot her an email asking her the same question so I will let you know if she emails me back.
