In....Canto sul Garda
12. International Choral Competition and Festival
Riva del Garda is looking forward to a musical choral diversity in October. With more than 900 participants from 17 countries around the world, In… Canto sul Garda is coming back.
During October 14 – 18, 2017, more than 30 international choirs will present a varied and colourful program in ten concerts in and around Riva del Garda. The numerous competition concerts also offer a great opportunity to bring the international choir scene to the local choir’s homes.
"This year, already for the 12th time, so many people are following our invitation to travel from far away to give their shape to the festival through their performances and to also sing together with regional choirs," said Enrico Miaroma, artistic director of the festival. "Not only young people, but also the older generation is very active in choral music, which is really outstanding these days!". The idea of meeting music and managing director Piroska Horváth to bring together young and old from all over the world is also adapted here.
Since October 2016, the event music series of meeting music has included the category "Senior Choirs" in the program and thus set a decisive trend.
The organizers welcomes the international jury of Valerija Fischbach (HR), Enrico Miaroma (IT), Aarne Saluveer (EE), Battista Pradal (IT), Jürgen Faßbender (DE) and Gábor Hollerung (HU). Participants are from the Czech Republic, Germany, Canada, Croatia, Indonesia, Israel, Finland, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Norway, Netherlands, Ireland, Italy, Romania and Poland.
