History

Home  /  Festival  /  History

1998

The Alta Pusteria Festival is born: the first edition sees twenty-two Italian choirs participating and takes place in the five towns of Alta Val Pusteria, from Braies to Sesto.

2000

With forty participating choirs, the Festival takes on an international dimension. Over the years the Italian choirs will be accompanied by formations coming from almost all European countries and from America, Africa, Asia and Oceania. At the Sala Gustav Mahler in Dobbiaco the `` Giornate-Incontro`` are born, which will later be extended to all the largest concert halls in the valley.

2002

On the occasion of the celebrations for the "International Year of the Mountains" the great "Outdoor Reviews" are conceived: the consents they obtain lead them to become a permanent Festival event.

2003

The Festival reaches the eighty participating choirs. The first 'Sfilata dei Cori' takes place, which since then has been repeated every year in the center of San Candido.

2004

The growing number of registrations - one hundred participants - leads to the expansion of the event: the Festival extends its exhibitions towards the western part of the valley up to Brunico.

2005

The desire to offer an ever-increasing variety of venues leads the event to also extend towards the eastern side of the Val Pusteria; the border with Austria is crossed by planning concerts at Sillian in the Villgratten valley.

2006

The "Tyrolean Festival" is included in the Festival program. Organized specifically for all participating choirs, it traditionally takes place on Friday evening in the central square of Villabassa.

2010

The "Festa di Benvenuto" (Welcome Party) is set up, a spectacular outdoor concert that takes place on Thursday mornings at the top of Plan de Corones, at a height of 2275 meters.

2014

The Festival reaches the number of 1000 participating choirs from the first edition.

Currently the program involves the holding of the Festival in the twelve towns located along the Val Pusteria between Chienes and Sillian and in the three side valleys of Anterselva, Braies and Casies.
