5th International Anton Bruckner Choir Competition and Festival

June 03 - 07, 2015 Linz, Austria

Singing in the historic city

Anton Bruckner, one of the greatest composers of the late Romantic period, spent long years of his career as cathedral organist and composer at the St. Florian Monastery near Linz. His works belong to the most important produced during the Romantic period. In particular, his motets and masses are towering examples of Catholic Church music of the second half of the 19th century and belong to the standard repertoire of numerous choirs all over the world. The venues of the choir competition are the Brucknerhaus, the first address in the cultural and concert life of the city of Linz, Linz Cathedral and the St. Florian Monastery.

The International Anton Bruckner Choir Competition is both an international choir competition with various categories of different levels of achievement for amateur choirs and presents itself at the same time as a Festival of Choral Music in which choirs from all over the world can give concerts and make the most of the atmosphere of this international event. The attraction of this event consists of performing at a competition for a grand prix as a basic artistic component on the one hand and the possibility of participation in the friendship and gala concerts at St. Florian on the other hand.
