With this Choir Competition & Festival we would like to offer you a unique combination of choir competition, concerts, master class and musical journey. Singing is one of the deepest expressions of human culture. The European art of singing has a rich and long-lasting tradition. Within the framework of our festival we would like to give you the opportunity to expand your singing skills and then to take home a wealth of experience.
What is so special about our festival is that the performances take place in former imperial and royal palaces of Vienna, Bratislava and Prague, which do not only captivate us by their splendour and elegance, but also have preserved their original atmosphere, in which masters such as Mozart, Haydn or Strauss created their magnificent works. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to walk in the traces of the great classical composers and get to know their domains in Vienna.
Joseph Haydn said: “My language is understood in the whole world.”
This means: music always puts that what we have in common before anything that divides us. May singing bring us together, in the sense of a fruitful cultural exchange between your home and ours!
