NEW: Virtual Evaluation opportunity for choirs
Get valuable advice from international experts online and prepare for your next choir competition in the best way
The Corona Pandemic has silenced choirs worldwide in the past two years and only slowly can we get back to the old days with choir rehearsals, concerts and choir competitions & festivals.
Nevertheless, we look into the future with a positive feeling and are looking forward to welcoming choirs from all over the world live on stage again at our festivals and competitions. A first step was made with Vox Lucensis – Concorso Corale Internazionale in Lucca and now we’re looking forward to the next choral event in the fall and the 12th World Choir Games Gangneung 2023 in South Korea.
To support your preparatory work until then in a good way we’ve recently invented a new format: A Virtual Evaluation opportunity for choirs!
Virtual Evaluation opportunity for choirs
This special virtual non-competitive event is based on experience gained from more than 200 INTERKULTUR international events and specially designed for choirs to gather valuable experience and guidance to perform in upcoming international INTERKULTUR competitions, like the World Choir Games.
How does it work?
Basically, you’re asked to send in a video of your choir where you sing a selection of pieces, which will be evaluated by our international panel of adjudicators. You will receive a full written Evaluation Report with motivating advice and an official participation certificate with your personal rating.
Choirs can choose between two kinds of repertoire:
A) Free Repertoire:
- 3 pieces of the choir’s choice
- duration between 8 and 15 minutes
B) World Choir Games Repertoire
Choirs that wish to receive a special evaluation with recommendation for their participation in the World Choir Games are invited to sing a program according to the rules of the categories of either The Open Competition or The Champions Competition of the World Choir Games in Gangneung, South Korea. Details about the competition rules can be found at www.wcg2023.com.
Detailed information about the video production and the rules for this can be found in the Participant Information, which is available for download below. Please read and follow these rules carefully!
There are two sessions of Virtual Evaluation for choirs being planned at the moment:
Registration for the first session ends on June 12, 2022, the videos must be submitted until June 27.
For the second session, please register until September 12, 2022, the videos must be submitted by September 26 then.
A registration fee of 150 Euro has to be paid per Evaluation category.
Should your choir register for the 12th World Choir Games Gangneung 2023, this fee will be credited to the registration fee of your choir.
