See you in 2022!
May 7, 2021
Dear Friends of the Alta Pusteria Festival,
Here we are now in full Spring!
After more than a year of silence, many choirs are gradually resuming their musical activity and many others will resume it in the next months; fortunately, although not uniformly in all the countries around the world, it seems that the health situation is slowly improving.
However, despite these progresses, we believe it is rather difficult that there will soon be that substantial improvement that would allow a safe and peaceful running of our Festival in the month of June.
Therefore, we believe that the most appropriate and responsible decision is to cancel the 2021 edition.
At the same time, optimistically confident in a desirable recovery, I am pleased to inform you that we have already planned the next edition: it will be the twenty-fifth (we eliminated ex officio the 23 and 24 ...), it will take place from Wednesday 15 to Sunday 19 June 2022 and, above all, it will be particularly GREEN
See you soon with all the updates!
Director of the Festival
THE ONE-THOUSAND-CHOIR FESTIVAL
The Alta Pusteria International Choir Festival is a non competitive choral event that takes place in Val Pusteria: this valley, one among the most beautiful one of the whole Alpine arc, is located at the border between Italy (Sudtirol region) and Austria (Osttirol region) at the foot of the Dolomites.
The first edition of the Festival took place in 1998; since then more than 1250 choirs, coming from 49 countries, have been participating in the twenty-two editions set up till 2019.
The variety of the locations selected for the performances together with the extremely rich repertoire presented by the participating choirs make this Festival not only one of the most spectacular international choral festivals but also a unique opportunity of mutual and fruitful exchange between different musical cultures.
Here is our GREEN Festival! In five points, everything you need to know about one of the most spectacular choral events in Europe
