4th Portuguese Summer Choral Festival 2015 | 26 - 29 June 2015
Date: February 11, 2014
The 4th Portuguese Summer Choral FestivalTM (PSCF) 2014 is organized by Maestro Paulo Vassalo Lourenço, Director of Choral Studies at the Escola Superior Música de Lisboa, in association with SourceWerkz, a choral events and music education company based in Singapore. Supported by the Empresa de Gestão de Equipamentos e Animação Cultural (EGEAC), this festival is also part of the annual festivities of the Festas de Lisboa, a month long arts and cultural programme that takes place throughout Lisbon’s theatres, venues and city streets.
Held in Lisbon, one of Europe’s most charming cities and historical capital of Portugal, the festival is designed to provide a platform for choirs to partake not only in high-level competition, but also as an opportunity for choirs of different cultures to exchange choral ideas, interpretation and techniques.
The festival also aims to provide valuable performance opportunities to the choirs by having participants sing at various city landmarks on the monumental and cultural district of Belém, Lisbon, joining in the festivities of the annual Festas de Lisboa ’15.
