Congratulating the successful implementation of the 53rd edition of the “Golden Nightingale” Festival, President Pendarovski, who is its patron, said that this Festival has played a significant role in the development of the talent of the youngest for more than half a century, and the hits composed and sung at the “Golden Nightingale” are popular to this day and many adults remember them from their childhood days.
The members of the permanent children’s choir and the soloists of “Golden Nightingale” sang refrains from the new children’s hits and shared their impressions and experiences with the President about the recently held Festival.
