7th International Robert Schumann Choir Competition and Festival

October 15 - 19, 2014 Zwickau, Germany

Zwickau 2014

Zwickau, the birthplace of the composer Robert Schumann, is host of the correspondent choir competition. The event focuses on the compositional works of Robert Schumann and his contemporaries. One of the main intentions of this festival is the new interpretation as well as the cultivation of the 19th century works. Another point of emphasis is the international choir music; mainly the variety of modern choir singing in association with international understanding shall be demonstrated.

An advisory circle, together with internationally recognised experts in the field of choral music, will be responding to the often expressed desire of many choirs for comprehensive pedagogical and artistic advice, and also coming to terms with the inhibitions associated with "competitions". Friendship Concerts in Zwickau and the vicinity will provide outstanding possibilities for experiencing the complete fascination of this renowned international choral festival.
