Elitsa Stoyneva

Bulgarian Singing, Singing for Children

Elitsa Stoyneva is a seven-time gold medalist folk singer from Tŭrgovishte, Bulgaria. As a child she grew up surrounded by the beauty of Bulgarian traditional singing. She learned her first song from her mother when she was 5 years old and has been singing ever since. Elitsa graduated from a professional music high school and she has performed at competitions and concerts in Bulgaria, Egypt, Switzerland, Greece, Canada and the United States.

After coming to the United States Elitsa continued to sing, representing Bulgaria with passion and heart. She has been a special guest singer in many halls around the world, including the opera houses in Cairo and Alexandria in Egypt, Berklee Performance Center in Boston, and Grand Prospect Hall in Brooklyn. She has done projects with Chicago Children’s Choir—this work appears in a book and DVD—and directed her own children’s choir during her time in Maine. In addition, she has conducted workshops with diverse groups including Yale Slavic Women’s Chorus; Pletenitsa Berklee Balkan Choir; and Maine Balkan Choir, which she directed for several years. Elitsa lives in the Boston area.
