It is such a great honor to perform at this prestigious festival in my country and among world famous names. It brings me great pleasure to sing in front of our audience. I had a solo concert in the Church of the Holy Spirit a year ago and I really enjoyed the wonderful acoustics and sharing my emotions with the people in the audience. I have wonderful memories of that hall because it’s the place where I had won a Golden Lyra on the State competition in solo singing when I was 15 years old. This year I will be performing accompanied by renowned pianist Đorđe Nešić who has been living and working in New York for the last 35 years. We will do our best to give the audience a unique experience and pleasure. Thank you very much for inviting me and I wish you a successful organization of the Festival! – said Tamara Rađenović, a 23 year old artist from Podgorica who graduated on London’s “Royal College of Music“ last year. She has performed in 12 countries all over the world so far and besides performances in Carnegie Hall she will also have a few solo concerts in Barcelona, Hong Kong and London.
