Throughout its 55-year history, Slovan Men’s Chorus perpetuated the Slovenian musical tradition of male ensembles on this side of the Atlantic. Slovan attracted some of the best voices in the community and grew to more than 30 singers, directed by Anton Schubel and Frank Vauter, among others. The singers often performed together with mixed choruses, such as Adria, Glasbena Matica and Toronto’s Fantje Na Vasi. The men of Slovan were frequent guests at wakes and benefits, often outside Ohio. In the 1950s, Slovan was the first Cleveland Slovenian chorus to record. In 1976, the Smithsonian Institute chose to sponsor the Slovan Quartet to represent America’s Slovenians at the Bicentennial celebration in Washington D.C.
