Karmina Šilec conductor

Karmina Šilec was born in Maribor and took her degree at the Music Academy in Zagreb, Croatia. She first tried her hand as a conductor at the age of 16, now she is chef-conductor of Carmina Slovenica, artistic director of ATTACCA festival and the ensemble Kebataola, and has projects with various ensembles worldwide.

Karmina Šilec has brought a characteristic flair and integrity to the direction of ensembles. Through her guidance they have not only attained the highest level of musical achievement, but have transformed their performances into highly innovative, exciting artistic events. Her enthusiastic exploration of the international music scene ensures a variety of dynamic repertoires. Her main aim is a continual search for new music and new fields of work: from early music with special focus on medieval music, ethnic music with extended vocal techniques to the latest avant-garde repertoire which is her major interest.

Karmina Šilec moulds projects into a rounded picture that connects images into a uniform whole. This kind of a higher arch binds all of her creations - from concerts with music from the Middle Ages to stage performances at the forefronts of the contemporary music scene.

She has performed on stages worldwide, collaborated in various international projects, made recordings for many radio and television stations and received excellent reviews of her performances by musical experts and critics.

As a jury member she has joined more than 50 competitions worldwide, among them also the prestigious conductor competition Eric Ericson. She is also member of several artistic committees and commissions. As a repertoire editor she cooperates with Earthsongs Publishing and CS Editions.
