Chamber choir Arima
In the autumn of 2016, a group of young and enthusiastic singers have come together with a common goal in mind: to sing their hearts out in good company. That is how the Chamber choir Arima was formed under their parent cultural organisation Bakla. It consists of 20 young singers, and for quite a few of them this choir is their first experience of organised signing. It is their eagerness and enthusiasm to learn and grow that push the choir forward, to learn and experience the whole art of singing.
The choir has mostly performed within their municipality of Postojna, but has also performed throughout Slovenia and the neighbouring countries. The choir is lead by the singer and conductor, Miha Bole.

Later on he was a member of recognized Slovene choirs: Chamber Choir Ave, Mixed Choir of the Conservatory in Ljubljana and Academic Choir of the University of Primorska, where he was also the assistant of the conductor. He has finished his singing education at the Conservatory in Ljubljana with prof. Janko Volčanšek. Currently he is studying solo singing in The Academy of music in Zagreb with prof. Giorgio Surian.
