3rd Kalamata International Choir Competition and Festival

October 9 - 13, 2019 Kalamata, Greece

Singing in the Land of Gods

Two previous choir events in Kalamata have proven: The combination of sea, mountains, vine and olive trees make Greece a place where singers from all over the world feel mostly welcome.

Hosted by the romantic city of Kalamata, located on the Southern Peloponnese this choral event combines the advantages of an international choral competition with various concert opportunities in a culturally diverse city.

Narrow lanes, a historic old town and the Apostles church of the 12th century characterize the townscape until today: Kalamata is vibrant, calm and idyllic.

The competition part offers categories for different levels of difficulty, casts and musical genres – the festival combines an easy going gathering of different nations with the wonderful setting of South East Europe.
