While in recent weeks and months the choral life all over the world is limited to the virtual space, INTERKULTUR puts all energy in preparing a wonderful event year 2021, where all the moments of singing, hugging and celebrating together, which we’re missing right now can be finally made up. Let’s have an overview and dream of all the good things lying ahead already:

One of the most traditional INTERKULTUR festivals will open the musical spring 2021: The 15th International Choir Competition and Festival Bad Ischl from March 4 - 8, 2021 in Bad Ischl, Austria welcomes singers from all over the world as a kick-off event for the new choral year. Wine, truffles and hazelnuts - from April 7 – 11, 2021 singing meets gourmet culture at the culinary event series VOICES & WINE Alba in Italy. Competitions in a historical setting in Italy, on the other hand, will be the focus of attention at Vox Lucensis from 7 - 11 April 2021 in Lucca.
From Europe, the route then leads to Asia for the 7th Vietnam International Choir Competition from April 8 - 12, 2021 at the UNESCO World Heritage Site Hội An, Vietnam, which is regularly named one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. 
The next stop in the INTERKULTUR calendar will be with old friends: The World Choir Games 2014 and European Choir Games 2017 host city Riga in Latvia invites you to RIGA SINGS from May 1 - 5, 2021. The spring tour will end in the Bruckner city of Linz/ Austria with the event Sound Waves Linz from May 20 - 24, 2021.

The summer is heralded by the most famous and popular INTERKULTUR event: The 11th World Choir Games from July 2 - 12, 2021 in Flanders, Belgium, offer unique opportunities for intercultural experiences and unforgettable choral performances. The following 6th International Choir Conductors' Seminar Wernigerode from July 17 - 20, 2021 in Wernigerode, Germany, will focus on choir-conducting related issues that can be applied in the subsequent 12th International Johannes Brahms Choir Festival and Competition from July 21 - 25, 2021 in Wernigerode, Germany.

Singing for Peace opens the choral autumn in the INTERKULTUR event calendar: 4th Voices for Peace from September 26 - 30, 2021 in Perugia/Assisi, Italy, takes international choirs to the city of St. Francis. Greece will be the next host when the 4th Kalamata International Choir Competition and Festival is held in Kalamata, Greece, from October 7-11, 2021. Afterwards INTERKULTUR will celebrate a special anniversary with the 10th edition of Canta al mar - Festival Coral Internacional from 21 - 25 October 2021 in Calella/Barcelona, Spain, before the INTERKULTUR year ends in late autumn with VOICES & WINE Málaga 2021 from November 17 – 21, 2021 in Málaga, Spain. But no matter if spring, summer, autumn, Spain, Italy, Austria or elsewhere - the INTERKULTUR team is looking forward to welcoming your choir finally on stage again!
