More Than Just Competition

In addition to the main competition, the European Choir Games & Grand Prix of Nations Aarhus 2025 provides a variety of participation opportunities to enhance the full experience. Also, participation in the competition is not obligatory, but choirs may also choose to participate in one or more festival activities only, which are:

  • Evaluation Performances: Gain insightful feedback from expert adjudicators in a non-competitive setting, helping your choir to grow and improve. This level of participation is exclusively available to choirs who choose not to be placed in competition but seek to sing in front of an international jury and get their valuable feedback.
  • Individual Coachings: Benefit from one-on-one sessions with a renowned international choral expert, offering tailored advice and techniques to elevate the choir's performance. All participants, whether taking part in the competitions or not, are given the opportunity to participate with their choir in such a coaching session.
  • Friendship Concerts: Engage in joyful musical exchanges with choirs from different cultures and backgrounds. These concerts at different stages and places all over the host city foster international friendships and create unforgettable memories through shared music-making.
  • Festival Stage Choir: As an artistic highlight of the event, a festive performance of a selection of traditional and international choral symphonic pieces will be performed at the Closing Concert. Choirs interested in participating in this concert are invited to register for it. However, the Artistic Committee has final approval on the selection of choirs, who must rehearse independently and arrive prepared for massed rehearsal, which take place during the event and are obligatory for all choirs participating in the Festival Stage Choir.
