Northern Vocal Spirit
New INTERKULTUR event in Sweden
Sweden – home of outstanding choirs and unique choral sounds from Scandinavia – will host another international INTERKULTUR choir event in spring 2018, following a successful first edition in 2004: Helsingborgs Körfestival – The Swedish International Choir Competition will take place from May 9-13, 2018. Swedish choirs rank among the world’s best ensembles and determine the level of international choir competitions in many years. The most popular Swedish export in the field of vocal music is probably the famous a cappella quintet “The Real Group” from Stockholm. Their “Chili con carne” from 1982 is a famous piece in the choral scene and frequently performed by choirs around the world.
In Helsingborg, choirs from all over the world have the chance to get a taste of great Swedish choral music. The new INTERKULTUR Festival offers many competition categories, Evaluation Performances or Individual Coachings as well as intercultural Friendship Concerts to open all doors to the participants. Everyone will find what they are looking for!
Helsingborg, a city with more than 100,000 residents, is located in Sweden’s south, at the narrowest point of the Öresund, the beautiful strait between Sweden and Denmark. The city’s cultural life is thriving in recent years: Fans of classic, Jazz and modern music regularly find what they’re looking for. Helsingborg is further one of the few cities in Sweden that has long and beautiful beaches, located just a few minutes’ walk away from the center.
Experience Scandinavian and international choral music in one of Sweden’s oldest cities – Helsingborg is waiting for you!
