Friendship Concert in Calella and Barcelona
Participating choirs may register to perform in local concert settings together with other international choirs, such as churches, open air markets, libraries, parks, museums, etc. Choirs must prepare approximately 20 minutes of their own music pre-approved by the INTERKULTUR artistic committee. The concert should be preferably a cappella or with own instruments. (Piano or E-Piano can be provided upon request.)
In addition to the open air stages in the city centre, Calella offers other possibilities for performing downtown and on the seafront which is also available for friendship concerts. Choirs who perform sacred music also have the possibility to sing at Església de Santa Maria y Sant Nicolau. The Theatre Orfeo is especially suitable for small choirs. Selected choirs can also sing at the famous Monastery Montserrat close to Barcelona and at the impressive Cathedral of Barcelona as well as the Church Santa Maria del Pi, where some parts of the competition will be held.
Interested choirs also have the possibility to perform during a mass on Sunday noon in Calella.
Please be aware that several friendship concerts are planned open air. In the event that weather conditions do not allow this, some concerts may be cancelled due to the weather. The organizers will try to manage alternatives but choirs do not have any legal claim to this.
Choirs can also take part in Friendship Concerts ONLY (Non-competitive Festival Participation).
