Dear President,

the Organizing Committee of the “Festival Verona Garda Estate” is pleased to invite your choir to participate in the festival in Italy in 2015!

The choral Festival takes place in the provinces of Verona (www.tourism.verona.it), Brescia (www.comune.brescia.it), Mantua (www.turismo.mantova.it), Vicenza(www.vicenza.org) and near the waters of Lake Garda (www.gardaweb.com) during the month of June-July 2015.

The festival is divided in four equal parts:

  • First part: 25, 26, 27, 28 June (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
  • Second part: 2, 3, 4, 5 July (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
  • Third part: 9, 10, 11, 12 July (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday)
  • Fourth part: 16, 17, 18, 19 July (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday)

Each choir can choose the most suitable part in which it participates.

In each festival 7-9 international choirs will be invited. In total there will be participation of around 30 choirs from all around the world alongside several local Italian choirs.

The participating choirs will perform in four concerts or alternatively participate in a Mass with a short concert following, which means one performance a day, each one in a different city. The concerts are held mainly in churches but also in theatres or squares suitable for choral concerts.

In each concert there will be two to three international choirs and an additional local choir if available.

We seek to create as much variety as possible in the combination of the choirs performing together and thus, if possible, to have a different line up of choirs at each concert.

Each choir will, depending on the number of choirs participating, perform for about 20-35 minutes for a free a cappella program either profane or sacral depending of the place of the concert. In case of a mass, there will be two choirs performing.

The respective scores of two simple compositions will be sent to each choir well in advance. The choirs will sing these compositions all together at the end of each concert or mass.

Organization

At the expense of the Festival - the expenses for the hotel (3 or 4 stars): this includes two singles for every choir and the requested amount of doubles and triples (if available).
