9th Canta al mar – Festival Coral Internacional
Sing and Fun at the Mediterranean Sea
Set the stage for one of INTERKULTUR's most popular events: Also in 2020 the annual festival "Canta al mar – Festival Coral International" in Calella will be once again a must-see attraction for many choirs from around the world.
Sunny weather, long sandy beaches, short walking-distances as well as sightseeing and performance opportunities in Barcelona or nearby surroundings, make this festival a unique experience for all participants.
Events like "Calella Sings" in the historic city center and numerous open-air concerts will create extensive opportunities to meet the locals and to socialize with fellow singers from around the world.
Enjoy a happy and relaxed choir event on the Spanish Mediterranean Coast in a festival that beautifully combines holiday feeling and love for music in a perfect manner!
New: ONLINE Festival
2020 is different. We have all had to experience this painfully on many levels, and therefore it is not surprising that the 9th Canta al mar 2020 at the end of October cannot take place in the planned form; with joint singing on stage, numerous Friendship Concerts, intercultural exchange and last but not least the big choir party with Paella and Sangrìa.
But we don't want to simply remove Canta al mar 2020 from our calendar, so this year we’re going to celebrate the festival online via our Facebook page and INTERKULTUR.TV!
During the event period from October 22nd to 26th, 2020, you can look forward to numerous pictures and performances of past events, greetings from the organizers and also some yet unreleased videos. Choirs that have changed their booking from this year to 2021 will also be heard and will already get us in the mood for the 10th anniversary event in 2021!
So check it out - on Facebook and INTERKULTUR.TV we will be there and celebrate a wonderful online festival together with you!

What is music for you?
3,5 kilometers of sandy beach, its location directly at the Mediterranean Sea and its proximity to Barcelona make Calella a popular European destination. During the choral festival singers can wonderfully make music, stroll and relax in the contemplative old town with its Catalan and Mediterranean charm.
Since its 650 years of history Calella has developed from a small fishing village into a favoured resort of all nations and age groups. This mixture of modernity, hospitality and Catalan traditions add a special touch to Calella and thus make it an appealing travel destination.
