8th Int. Johannes Brahms Choir Festival and Competition; 17 - 21 July 2013 • Wernigerode, Germany
Date: July 19, 2011
Since 1999 this INTERKULTUR event is a crowd-puller for choirs and music groups from all over the world. The man after whom the festival is named, Johannes Brahms, and the German Romantics of the 19th century, will be a focal point. The category “Sacred Choir Music” will be included in the competition for the first time as an additional option to those categories already available. Apart from category and special prizes adjudicated by an international jury there will be an audience prize, for which every spectator can vote. This event offers interested choirs excellent opportunities to learn together and refine their specialist skills with coaching concerts and rehearsals with recognized international choral experts. We explicitly invite choirs and ensembles of all kinds who prefer not to take part in competition but like to give concerts in Wernigerode and other regional communities.
