Let’s keep on singing!
2017 will be again full of exciting INTERKULTUR events
Happy New Choral Year, welcome 2017!
The new INTERKULTUR choral year presents a total of 25 amazing singing opportunities you shouldn’t miss.
The choral year will start with one of the most prestigious highlights in 2017: The Grand Prix of Nations Berlin 2017 will commence on February 1 and meet 31 top-class choirs from 15 nations that will compete in one of the best concert halls in Germany, the Berliner Philharmonie.
Just a few days after choirs will sing at the world renowned Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey for “Sing’n’Joy Princeton 2017”, evaluated by the famous choral experts Morten Lauridsen (USA), Aida Swenson (Indonesia) and Gabriel Crouch (Great Britain).
The first half of the year will continue with more international choir competitions and festivals in Assisi/Italy, Málaga/Spain, Hoi An/Vietnam, Linz/Austria and the 10th jubilee edition of the International Johannes Brahms Choir Festival & Competition in Wernigerode, Germany.
From July 16-23, 2017 another highlight event will follow: Riga, Latvian capital and host city of the 8th World Choir Games 2014 invites choirs from all over the world again to come and sing at the Grand Prix of Nations & 3rd European Choir Games Riga 2017. (By the way, registration for this eagerly awaited event is still possible until February 20, find out more details here!)
The second half of 2017 won’t take a back seat to the choral highlights in the first months. Along with established choir competitions and festivals in Kalamata/Greece and Calella/Spain, the first month-long INTERKULTUR choir festival ISTRAMUSICA will premiere in Porec/Croatia. The event gives choirs the chance to decide on their own how many days and when exactly they want to join the festival and which choral activities they would like to choose – the offer ranges from Friendship Concerts to Workshops, Evaluation Performances, competition participation and much more.
And in fall 2017 there’s still more to come. The 4th Asia Pacific Choir Games are going to take place in Colombo, Sri Lanka. It’s the first time that INTERKULTUR brings one of its choral events to this island country and we’re sure: It’s going to be fantastic! Learn more about the event here.
And as one last thing, not to forget: The non-competitive event series ON STAGE will lead singers to exciting singing weekends in Nice, Verona, Bilbao, Brussels, Florence, Barcelona, and Prague this year. Don't miss it!
We see and sing with you in 2017 – wherever in the world you might join us! Have a great and successful year!
