Bern, April 17, 2012 [CD-EUDnews]. The offices of the Euro-Africa Division were invaded by a group of young Romanian singers. The choir's name is 'Flori si Stele' (Flowers and Stars). The group comes from the church of Bcazs (Bucharest), Romania. After visiting the offices, the choir dedicated a song to the Division staff.
Directed by Maestro Carmen Stoica, the 44 children and 6 adults completed their one-week tour with a visit to Switzerland, performing for the authorities of the Romanian Embassy in Bern. The concert was held in the chapel of the 'Insespital' hospital, with an audience of forty people, the professional music was much appreciated.

'Flori si Stele' was founded in 1986, under the communist regime. Because of religious restrictions, it only performed two concerts that year. From the very beginning this choir has already demonstrate its potential to preach through music. Each concert is presented with the intention of fulfilling a mission.
From 1986 to 1992, the Romanian Adventist Church only worshipped in tents. We can imagine the impact of the sound from the performing young singers.


Since 1989, the choir has finally had the possibility to sing in churches. That year, 'Flori si Stele' also performed in 'Teatrul Tanasa', a local theater.

'Flori si Stele' considers its concerts as ministry. The group has travelled extensively visiting Germany, France, Italy, Austria, Belgium, the USA, Norway, Danmark, Netherlands and now Switzerland.

In 1991 the choir had grown to 105 children, from 6 to 18 years of age. From 1990 to 2011 (during the 21 years of ministry) about 380 children have sung in the choir.
They performed 500 concerts, covering 65,000 km by bus and 12,000 km by plane. They have also had the possibility to perform for the Strassbourg Parliament.
The choir’s one and only intention is to share the power of the Gospel.
