Int. Choir Competition & Festival Bad Ischl
April 30 - May 4, 2016 | Bad Ischl, Austria
Already for the 13th time the International Choir Competition & Festival will take place in Bad Ischl. From 2014 on INTERKULTUR organizes this popular choir competition together with the city of Bad Ischl and the Salzkammergut Touristik GmbH.
This international choir competition, located in the midst of the picturesque landscape of the Salzkammergut has become one of the most important and most beautiful choral events in Austria by now. International renowned jurors and choral experts will evaluate the competitions and help the choirs with words and deeds during consulting rounds.
Apart from the competitions in the Kongresshaus, gala concerts and international friendship concerts will take place during the event. The international parade of the choirs in the historic old town is the colorful highlight of the festival. These features will establish a unique atmosphere of cordial encounters between the choirs, singers and visitors.
Bad Ischl – the Emperor’s city – offers not only romance à la Sissi and Emperor Franz Josef, but also attractive shopping pleasures, catering and unique possibilities for excursions to the wonderful Salzkammergut and its countless crystal clear lakes, impressive mountain region and homey cities.
A special cooperation is possible in 2016 with the 30th International Franz Schubert Choir Competition taking place directly after the event in Bad Ischl. International choirs can combine both events to an Austrian Concert Tour.
