Aims of the Chamber Choir Competition

The City of Pécs which has already hosted several successful international choir events is going to welcome again a prominent music festival in 2013. Hungary - owing to Zoltán Kodály - is the homeland of choir music. The competition provides a forum for choirs all over the world to compete with one another, to get to know each others' style, tonality-image, repertoire and to get acquainted with some prominent pieces of Hungarian and international musical heritage. Pécs with its mediterranean atmosphere is the city of UNESCO cultural heritage, the space of cultural innovation and owner of the title of the European Capital of Culture in 2010. Pécs will also host the XIX. Europa Cantat in 2015. The renewed squares, buildings and the new concert hall offer great venue for the chamber choir competition which is organized in remembrance of the 50th anniversary of the passing of Francis Jean Marcel Poulenc, the member of „Les Six”.
