The Four Choirs Parties
Would you like to meet, after your performances, thousands of choristers coming from all over the world and toast and sing together with all of them? Then you don’t have to miss the Choirs Parties!
Large outdoor spaces, extensive pedestrian areas and a wide range of local products: so far the choirs parties have never been so GREEN
“FESTA DI BENVENUTO” Welcome Celebration
That’s the spectacular concert at 2275 meters high that will take place on the top of Plan de Corones on Thursday June 16 at 10:30
The choral groups will rise to high altitude and will perform on the stage set up under the great Bell of Concordia, the second largest Italian bell after the Rovereto one.
THE SCENT OF TYROL
They are three evening-parties that will take place simultaneously on Friday June 17 at Brunico (Brunico In…Cantata), San Candido (Un Brindisi con il Baranci) and Villabassa (Festa Tirolese)
The three parties will start in the afternoon and will go on till night. The central squares will be full of stands displaying typical food products and handicrafts from Val Pusteria. During the parties choirs could perform according to the Festival schedule.
THE CHOIRS PARADE
The choirs parade is probably the most spectacular event of the Festival: it will take place on Saturday June 18 in San Candido at 16:30
All the participating choirs will parade along the streets of the town and will gather in Piazza del Magistrato, in the centre of San Candido. Here, against the backdrop of the Dolomites, they will receive the official greeting of the mayor and then conclude the event with the performance of songs all together.
“FESTA DELL’ARRIVEDERCI” Goodbye Celebration
It’s the closing ceremony and will take place on Sunday June 19 at 10:30 in the Music Pavilion in Sesto, at the foot of Monte Elmo
During the ceremony, the choirs’conductors will come up on the stage in front of the Dolomites to be awarded the certificate of participation.
