2nd European Choir Games

July 05 - 12, 2015 Magdeburg, Germany

Become European Choir Champion!

Following the premier of the European Choir Games in Graz 2013, from July 5 – 12, 2015 INTERKULTUR is once again looking for the best choirs in Europe. This time the host city is located directly in the heart of Germany: Magdeburg – a city with a centuries-old history and the state capital of Saxony-Anhalt.

Magdeburg is one of Europe’s greenest cities. Numerous parks and green spaces shape the city, ideal for common singing in summer 2015.

Among others, the Champions Competition and the Open Competition, which is open for choirs from all over the world, will be held in the amazing concert halls of the monastery “Unser lieben Frauen” and the Johanniskirche Magdeburg, which will also host major events like the Opening, Closing and Awards Ceremonies.

Furthermore the historic Festung Mark will serve as choir center and for Friendship Concerts and Singing Together events.

Further venues like the Petrikirche will welcome choirs for the "Night of choirs" and the Magdeburg Cathedral will host a the special peace concert "Power of the dream".

Magdeburg has a rich cultural life in the state of Saxony-Anhalt. Located only 130 km west of Berlin it follows the impetus of the vibrant German capital adding its own history: The Baroque composer Georg Philipp Telemann was born here and Richard Wagner worked in Magdeburg occasionally. Events to their honor and many others fill the city’s cultural calendar each year.

By the way: The 9th International Johannes Brahms Choir Festival and Competition in Wernigerode, one of INTERKULTUR’s most beautiful and famous festivals, will be held following the European Choir Games in the colorful city at the Harz which is only 70 km away. A great opportunity to visit both events and to enjoy the numerous touristic attractions.

"The Grand Prix of Nations in Magdeburg was an inspirational musical journey. Interkultur can be so proud of the incredibly high standard."

Andre van der Merve, Juror, South Africa

"I wish to express a huge Thank You, to all Interkultur's staff, for your assistance before and during the European Choir Games, here in Magdeburg."
