Key information about the Festival
The Festival is addressed to all types of choirs and vocal ensembles from all over the world.
The Festival does not have a competitive character. However, at the end of each concert an Audience Prize will be awarded to the best choir.
Each choir is invited to perform five songs. At least the three of them should be Musical songs, while the remaining two may be freely selected, preferably from pop music, jazz, or from film soundtracks.
In case choirs do not wish to include Musical songs in their repertoire, they may present a performance of their own choice in the Festival concerts that will take place on the 21st and the morning of the 23rd of April.
The choirs may enrich their performance with a dancing or a theatrical touch.
The Festival provides the opportunity to dance schools or groups to participate with choreographies inspired by theatrical or cinema Musicals.
The Festival Opening Ceremony will take place at the Conservatory of the Roman Agora, an ancient monument of great value in the city of Thessaloniki.
At the end of the Festival all participants are invited to a great Greek style feast.
The accommodation of the choirs will be provided at 3*, 4* and 5* hotels offering very reasonable rates. Staying in Thessaloniki entails a special historical and cultural interest. Hence, the choirs may combine their participation in the Festival with the acquaintance of the rich historical monuments of the city.
