"Zvjezdice", djevojački zbor

Godine 1985. zbor je pri Glazbenom centru mladih u Zagrebu utemeljio dirigent, skladatelj, pedagog i producent Zdravko Šljivac koji i danas vodi ansambl. Tijekom godina zbor se razvio u prvorazredni vokalni ansambl koji sudjeluje u mnogim zahtjevnim profesionalnim projektima surađujući s vodećim hrvatskim ansamblima kao što su Zagrebačka filharmonija, Zagrebački solisti, Simfonijski orkestar HRT, Hrvatsko narodno kazalište u Zagrebu i dr. Sudjelujući na mnogim domaćim i svjetskim festivalima zbor je dobio vrijedna priznanja i nagrade, među ostalim nagradu "Ivan Lukačić" za sudjelovanje u izvedbi oratorija Stabat mater G. B. Pergolesija na Varaždinskim baroknim večerima, nagradu za najbolju izvedbu suvremene skladbe na Međunarodnom festivalu u Celju. Posebno se izdvaja dvostruka pobjeda na Svjetskom festivalu zborova u Llangollenu, u Sjevernom Walesu. Osim klasičnog zborskog a cappella programa zbor izvodi djela suvremenih hrvatskih skladatelja te sudjeluje u izvedbama vokalno-instrumentalnih skladbi kao što su Mahlerova Osma simfonija, Orffova Carmina burana, Fauréov Requiem, Brittenov Ratni requiem, Berliozovo "Kristovo djetinjstvo" i dr., kao i u izvedbama opera "Parsifal" R. Wagnera, "Carmen" G. Bizeta, "Mefistofele" A. Boita i dr. Dosad je zbor ostvario više stotina tonskih zapisa te niz samostalnih diskografskih izdanja među kojima se izdvajaju CD "AVE MUNDI GLORIA", dvostruki CD u povodu 15. godišnjice djelovanja te božićna izdanja uz mnoge hrvatske ansamble i soliste. 

Little Stars

World’s Champions and Cultural Ambassadors of the European Union
" Little Stars" operates within the Zagreb – Croatia, Youth Center Singing Studio.

Exceeding international standards, choir pre-admission requirements are indeed stringent, requiring the highest personal dedication and professionalism of choir member candidates. Every candidate is required to maintain excellent school grades (A+) for as long as is member associated with the choir. Spending several hours every day in rehearsal, for a minimum of two years, candidates are required to perform in high artistic level hundreds of complex musical scores.
Finally, with harmony, tonal resonance and diction of the candidate honed to brilliant perfection, directorial permission is then granted and the candidate submits herself to the Youth Center Singing Studio, Directorial Review Board. Upon acceptance by the review board and the concurrence of Maestro Zdravko Sljivac, founder and director of “Little Stars”, the candidate becomes a member of “Little Stars”, and is permitted the honor of singing in public for the very first time.

Honored to be elected as Cultural Ambassadors of the European Union Parliament, Little Stars, by popular European editorial opinion, has surpassed the Vienna Boys Choir. On July 6, 2001, Little Stars became two-times world champion at Llangollen International Music Festival, Llangollen, Wales, U.K..
