Int. Choir Competition & Festival Budapest
March 24 - 28, 2013
The International Choir Competition Budapest is the oldest INTERKULTUR competition. It takes place every two years during the Holy Week (the week before Easter) and is one of the most traditional and distinctive events of INTERKULTUR. It is part of a wonderful tradition that the opening ceremony of the International Choir Competition in Budapest always includes a symphony concert. Celebrated performances of the "Sinfonie der Tausend" by Mahler, "Magnificat" by Vajdas, "Belshazzar's Feast" by Waltens or "African Sanctus" by Fanshawe among others, which were all conducted by Gábor Hollerung, took place in the Music Academy in Budapest.
Come and get to know the delightful capital of Hungary. Take a stroll down its narrow alleys and experience the architectural history up close: a blend of ancient Roman and Mediaeval architecture, a harmonious work of art ranging from the Renaissance to the modern. Budapest rightly counts as one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.
