"I enjoyed all the moments in Grado thanks to your kind, helpful, and highly professional work. It is so rare to find staff with such a level of hospitality. The competition went very fluent, and easy, thank to you. So, I hardly can find words to thank you for all you done for me and for the success of the competition."

Enjoy an atmospheric choir festival in one of the most beautiful regions south of the Alps. You are warmly welcome!
This event provides you the opportunity to choose from the following options of participation:

"It was a real pleasure for us to participate after the covid dark years in this nice event. Let me emphasize that I personally very much value the way you and the team prepared, organized, and communicated the 10th Isola del Sole event. It is not quite easy these days to take the decision and go for a choir tour anywhere… but let me assure you that you guys make such decisions for us much easier. Since we - in the shoes of choir managers - know that everything will work out just fine, and unexpected problems (if any) will be taken care of and possibly solved."
"We enjoyed our time in Italy and had a pleasant stay with many enriching meetings, good choral music, great Italian food and new friends. We are thankful for your help and your good mood!"
This event lies in the past!

Welcome to Grado!
Grado, also called Sunny Island or Golden Island, is located at the northern corner of the Adriatic Sea and blazes with Venetian flair. Only a small strip of ground connects the island with the mainland. The historic city center is shaped by small squares, narrow alleys and aligned scenic fisher huts. Numerous canals and maze-like situated isles make it easy to fall in love with the beautiful spots of the city and its inimitable character.
We congratulate all singers to their great results! All in all 15 golden and 4 silver diplomas were awarded. Many thanks to all choirs and ensembles for participating!
