3rd Canta en Primavera – Festival Coral Internacional

April 26 - 30, 2017 Málaga, Spain

Canta en Primavera – Sing in Spring!

In April, when large parts of Europe are still hibernating, we present a springlike festival in one of Spain's most delightful regions. Spring in Málaga does not only stand for nature's awakening but is also symbolized by the many-voiced singing of choirs from all over the world.

The Canta en Primavera - Festival Coral Internacional attracts international choirs into the Southern part of the country right to the metropolis of Málaga.

Outstanding concert halls, churches and theatres will serve as ideal venues for competitions and concerts. Friendship concerts will also take place on open air stages within the heart of the Andalusian city. And as usual each choir has the possibility to select exactly those festival elements which suits its needs best: Competitions, concerts and further training. Touristic excursions to the beautiful Andalusian cities and landscapes will top this eventful activity off.

Thank you very much for your excellent work prior the festival and during it. It was a great opportunity to take part of it and get the good feedback from the jury. We're already looking into the next festivals you're organizing, so we could take part in those. Happy spring time and again, thank you very much!"
