Canta al mar 2012 – Festival Coral Internacional, October 17 – 21, 2012, Calella/Barcelona, Spain
Date: October 4, 2011
It’s all in the name: “Canta al mar“ is the title of the new festival which is part of the INTERKULTUR event series. Calella, a homey seaside resort located at the Spanish Costa del Maresme, will become the meeting place for choirs from all over the world in 2012. 3.5 kilometres of sandy beach as well as its location directly at the Mediterranean Sea and close to Barcelona make Calella a popular European travel destination. During the choir festival numerous friendship concerts will take place in the contemplative old town with its Catalan flair. All concert and competition venues as well as accommodations and other event locations in Calella are situated within walking distance. Thus attending concerts and other events can be combined perfectly with a placid stroll through the historic old town. Here choirs will meet, celebrate and sing together and get to know other nations and their traditions.
Mixed, male, female, children’s and youth choirs can participate in the competition in established categories and different levels of difficulty. Special attention is given to the categories “Folklore“ and “Pop“. No category will require compulsory pieces so that all participating choirs can choose an appropriate repertoire and perform in front of the jury without major restrictions.
Enjoy with your choir a new and relaxing choir event at the Spanish Mediterranean Coast! Sun, beach and sea, singing and celebrating together – this choir festival joins holiday and passion!
