GREAT RECOGNITION
The highest national awards for male choir "Brodosplit"

At the suggestion of the Arts Academy in Split and his vice-dean Branko Matulić, for the merits that the choir "Brodosplit" had as a propagator of cultural heritage, and winner of international awards in choral singing, among other things, as Olympic champion in choral singing, Croatian President Ivo Josipović honoured us with the recognition Povelja Republike Hrvatske and our maestro Vlado Sunko with Medal of the order of Croatian Danica with figure of Marko Marulić, which is awarded to Croatian and foreign citizens for special merits in culture. The president is clearly recognized our merits, he knew it before also, and today he decided to honor us . ...
"It is a great honor for us. It is recognition for the entire 40 years and all our successes, and to celebration of this moment greatly contributed the prize to our conductor, Medal of the order of Croatian Danica with figure of Marko Marulić...
... I hope that this will testify our values. We thank the entire choir and our maestro on the hard work, because without this symbiosis we would not exist." ...
... "This award is a great help. Because you can dedicatedly work as much as you want, but you are outsiders until the prize do not draw public attention to you. This makes job easier." tells us winning conductor Vlado Sunko. Conductor Sunko has over 35 years of his music career as a composer, conductor and professor and has received a number of awards. ...
this is the greatest reward for a culture that is awarded at the state level, but still every prize is interesting in their own way . ...
... However, the Medal of the order of Croatian Danica with figure of Marko Marulić is so highly ranked and seems it covers it all.
... This, my work was obviously visible, and Commission evaluated the activity and results, especially on the international scene. Without award is difficult to prove that way. There are plenty of people who are creditable, but this time we got the honor "....
