Already for the 12th time the International Choir Competition & Festival will take place in Bad Ischl. This international choir competition, located in the midst of the picturesque landscape of the Salzkammergut, has become one of the most important and most beautiful choral events in Austria by now. International and renowned jurors and choral experts will evaluate the vocal performances and help the choirs with words and deeds during the Evaluation Performances.

Apart from the competitions in the Kongresshaus, Gala Concerts, international Friendship Concerts and performances during masses will take place during the event. But the colorful highlight will be the international choir parade throughout the center of this Austrian spa. Intercultural meetings between choirs and choral music lovers will make this event a memorable experience.
