Int. Johannes Brahms Choir Festival and Competition
July 17 - 21, 2013 | Wernigerode, Germany
We cordially invite you to the International Johannes Brahms Choir Competition & Festival in Wernigerode.
Since 1999 this INTERKULTUR event is a crowd-puller for choirs and music groups from all over the world.
The man after whom the festival is named for, Johannes Brahms, and the German Romantics of the 19th century, will be a focal point.
This event offers interested choirs excellent opportunities to learn together and refine their specialist skills with coaching concerts and rehearsals with recognized international choral experts. We explicitly invite choirs and ensembles of all kinds who prefer not to take part in competition but like to give concerts in Wernigerode and other regional communities. The festival will provide ample opportunities for groups to perform their repertoires to an interested audience, whether they are specialized in choral, orchestral or folk music.
Wernigerode is a town with a very special flair. It is a gem of medieval architecture located on the foot of the low mountain range of the Harz. There is hardly any other town with so many magnificent semi-timbered houses – a feast for your eyes. And it is an excellent stage for the parade and opening ceremony and further open air events.
