Kalamata International Choir Competition and Festival

October 14 - 18, 2015 Kalamata, Greece

International voices and melodies under the southern sun

INTERKULTUR’s first international choir competition in Greece: Hosted by the romantic city of Kalamata, located on the Southern Peloponnese.

Vibrant, calm and idyllic – Kalamata proves in an impressive way that these characteristics do not conflict with each other: Narrow lanes, a historic old town and the Apostles church of the 12th century characterize the townscape until today. The combination of sea, mountains, vine and olive trees make Greece a wonderful place where singers from all over the world will feel mostly welcome.

Singing in the land of gods – singing in Kalamata. This choir competition unites the advantages of an international choir competition with numerous possibilities for concert performances in a city that provides manifold cultural choices.
The competition part offers categories for different levels of difficulty, casts and musical genres – the festival combines an easy going gathering of different nations with the wonderful setting of South East Europe.
