Grand Prix of Nations Berlin 2017

February 01 - 05, 2017 Berlin, Germany

A "Fest der ChorKulturen" in Germany’s capital city

Following the huge success of the 1st Grand Prix of Nations 2015 in Magdeburg the event remains for the time being in Germany and will be held in 2017 in the German capital of Berlin!

This Grand Prix will be embedded in Berlin’s "Fest der ChorKulturen" 2017, where not only the Berlin Radio Choir but also further top class choirs and orchestras will be performing. The chamber music hall of the Berliner Philharmonie, one of the best concert halls in Germany, will provide a worthy framework for the Grand Prix of Nations.

Berlin does not only stand out due to its variety of cultural activities but also due to all the fascinating facets of a cosmopolitan city. During the two-step competition choirs will have the opportunity to put their choral abilities to the test.

It is a great pleasure to INTERKULTUR to welcome the participants for the Grand Prix of Nations 2017 in the Berliner Philharmonie!

Participation Opportunities

The Grand Prix of Nations Berlin 2017 invites all non-professional choirs of the world to participate and offers fair and realistic competition to experienced competitive choirs as well as choirs with relatively little international experience.

The Grand Prix of Nations Berlin 2017 offers the Open Competition and the Grand Prix of Nations. These two competitions allow choirs from all over the world the opportunity to participate at the appropriate level and even give choirs also the chance to qualify for the Grand Prix of Nations.

Choirs that do not want to participate in the competitions have the chance to perform with choirs from around the World in Friendship Concerts or to attend the workshops that will be offered during the Event.
