Set the stage for six premieres in 2020
Numerous new events in the upcoming INTERKULTUR year
Albania, Germany, Philippines, Spain, Ukraine: 2020 will be a year with numerous premieres of new INTERKULTUR events. The brand new event series Voices & Wine kick off in Alba, Italy from April 15-19, 2020, followed by ON STAGE in Albania from 10 - 14 June 2020 in Tirana, Albania will kick off the year. On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the ON STAGE event series, the ON STAGE team welcomes choirs and singers to a varied event with Friendship Concerts, sightseeing and workshops in one of Europe's best kept secrets: beautiful Albania.
From Albania, the choirs will continue their journey to the Ukraine for the International Choir Competition Kyiv. From August 27 - 31, 2020 choirs from all over the world will meet here in one of the most important cultural centers of Eastern Europe to follow the traces of Franz Liszt, Leonard Bernstein and Sergej Rachmaninow in a joint musical competition, Evaluation Performances and Individual Coachings as well as Friendship Concerts in the Ukrainian capital.
From October 7 - 11, 2020, the journey continues from Europe to Asia to Sing'n'Joy Bohol which will take place in Tagbilaran City, Bohol Philippines. In addition to the popular activities at INTERKULTUR Events, a grand prize competition and the performance of the Sing'n'Joy Festival Choir will be integrated in the event. As one of the strongest participating choirs in INTERKULTUR events worldwide, numerous local and national participants are expected to sing together in addition to international choirs.
From Asia the choral trip then continues to two events in Germany: The Internationales Chorfest Magdeburg from 7 - 11 October 2020 and INTERKULTUR's first-ever national choir event, the Deutsche Chormeisterschaft 2020 from 6 - 8 November 2020 Koblenz address both international and exclusively German participants. Magdeburg, as a former European Choir Games host, has already been tried and tested as a choir festival venue, while Koblenz, due to its central location in the middle of Germany and its choir-oriented music scene, is entering the stage as a perfectly prepared host city.
The closing of the new events in 2020 will be a trip to sunny Spain: VOICES & WINE Málaga 2020 will take place from November 18 - 22, 2020 on the sunny Costa de Sol and therefore represents the perfect destination for an enjoyable and musical end of the year of a special kind.
Thanks for a fantastic year 2019 to all choirs, singers and the choir community worldwide and the whole INTERKULTUR team is looking forward to a great year 2020 with you all!
