4th Canta al mar – Festival Coral Internacional

October 21 - 25, 2015 Calella/Barcelona, Spain

Spanish way of life at the „Festival Coral Internacional“

The festival „Canta al mar“ has become an essential activity in INTERKULTUR’s event calendar. Since 2012 choirs from all over the world meet in the city of Calella in Catalonia/Spain and celebrate the international choral festival with plenty of singing and traditional Paella.
Each year Calella attracts new choirs through its Catalan charm. Long sandy beaches, sunny weather, the Mediterranean Sea and the proximity to the Spanish metropolis of Barcelona are included in the participation. According to the choirs’ wishes Barcelona can be included in their individual schedule in the context of the competition, as a venue for Friendship Concerts or simply as a destination for excursions.

All concert and competition venues in Calella are within walking distance and can therefore be combined ideally with a placid stroll through the historic center. That way choirs meet, sing together in Friendship Concerts and get to know other nations and their individual traditions. Enjoy with your choir a happy and relaxed choir event at the Spanish Mediterranean Coast – this festival joins holiday and passion!
