The American Int. Choral Festival - Reno-Tahoe 2011

May 4 - 8, 2011

The second American International Choral Festival combined the best of the american and the international festival traditions. It was a meeting place for choir conductors, American and international choirs as well as between singing traditions from all over the world and the strong US choral movement.

In workshops and evaluation performances the participating choirs and choir conductors got to know national and international choral literature, different singing styles and various performance practices. The choirs took part in concerts and other big events, where they were not only able to perform in front of an interested and interesting audience, but did also benefit by listening to international groups. Moreover they had the opportunity to experience the excitement of choral competitions.

Through a series of concerts, from gala concerts to friendship concerts, the city transformed into a "singing city" for these five days in May 2011.
