Int. Choir Competition & Festival Bad Ischl

The festival was officially opened

Warm welcome by the city and its surrounding

Despite the rainy weather the participants of the 13th International Choir Competition & Festival Bad Ischl 2016 took the opportunity to express the joy about their stay in Bad Ischl and their participation in an intercultural exchange by singing.

For the official opening in the Kongress & TheaterHaus Bad Ischl at 5 p.m. each of altogether 14 nations was officially welcomed. Endowed with flags and country signs they walked into the big hall of the Theater & KongressHaus. Also Major Hannes Heide expressed his satisfaction about another episode of the popular Choir Competition in Bad Ischl. Already empress Sissi and her husband Franz would have chosen the cute town in the beautiful Salzkammergut to their summer residence. With good reason: Bad Ischl would have something to offer for all taste, including a festival of international choral music.

Three musical performances from Austria (Vokalisten Kärnten), the Czech Republic (Musica e Danza) and from the Turkey (Robert College Singers) were the musical highlights of the Opening. Just have a look at the pictures!
