For nearly thirty years, Angie Zabjek sang harmony to Florence Unetich’s lyric soprano
voice as the popular duet from the Jadran Slovenian Singing Society. They first teamed
in 1972 and appeared with the chorus and as a specialty act around Cleveland and
Slovenian communities in nearby states. The “Jadran Songbirds,” as they were known,
recorded an album, “Echoes of Slovenia.” Angie began singing at age 10 and graduated
to the Jadran chorus as a teenager. As a soprano, she had the lead in the operetta,
Die Fledermaus, and performed in regular concerts until the chorus ended in 2000.
Angie has served on the auxiliary of the Slovenian Workmen’s Home for 15 years,
working at the weekly dinner. She was honored as 1994 Woman of the Year by the Cleveland
Federation of Slovenian National Homes.
