Performances

The Alta Pusteria Festival is an event providing for about sixty performances in five days, scheduled in three categories:

EMPTY

REAL CONCERTS

Between two and four choirs will appear in each concert, performing max 24 minutes or 8 pieces from their repertoire.
The real concerts can be indoors (churches, theatres, halls) or outdoors (concerts in the huts) according to the following timetable:
10:00 indoor concerts
13:00/14:00 outdoor concerts in the alpine huts
21:00 indoor concerts

OUTDOOR REVIEW

“Open Air Reviews” are concerts performed outdoors by five to eight choirs; each choir will perform max 15 minutes or 5 pieces from its repertoire.
Each “Review” takes place in a particularly evocative natural context, typical of Val Pusteria. For the beauty of the natural sceneries and the number of performing choristers, the “Reviews” are, together with the “Choirs’ Parade”, the most spectacular event of the Festival.
The "Open Air Reviews" take usually place on Friday and Saturday from 12:30 - 14:00
In addition to the Reviews, other important outdoor exhibitions are scheduled:
“Cori in Piazza” are reviews taking place in the central squares of the main towns in the valley.
“Choirs’ Night” it will take place at 23.30 during the “Festa Tirolese” in Villabassa”.

MEETING-DAYS

During the “Meeting-Days” eight to twelve choirs will perform, one after the other; each choir should sing the best two pieces taken from their own repertoire.
The "Days - Meeting" represent, artistically, the highlight of the Festival and are traditionally held according to the following schedule:
10:00, Meeting-Morning
17:00, Meeting-Afternoon
21:00, Meeting-Evening

EDIZIONE 2021 “LA MAGIA DELLE DOLOMITI”: LE DUE NOVITA’

1. Escursioni-Concerto al Lago di Braies (novità 2021!)

Su richiesta, i cori iscritti potranno visitare il Lago di Braies, costeggiare la riva e poi addentrarsi nel bosco fino alla vicina Malga Foresta per concludere l’escursione con una esibizione all’aperto.
L’escursione-concerto può essere richiesta per venerdì 18 o sabato 19 giugno, con inizio dalle 9:30 alle 14:30. Ricordiamo che il percorso prevede una camminata di circa 60 minuti con un dislivello di 94 m (da 1496 a 1590 m).
L’accesso al lago è generalmente contingentato; tuttavia, i gruppi corali avranno ingresso prioritario con l’uso completamente gratuito del parcheggio (automobili o pullman).

2. Prove all’Aperto – “Open Space” sulle Dolomiti  (novità 2021!)

I cori iscritti avranno a disposizione, su richiesta e per la durata massima di due ore, uno spazio all’aperto (open space) sulle Dolomiti per effettuare prove o altre attività non necessariamente collegate alle esibizioni.

L’elenco delle sedi disponibili per un “open space” comprende tutti i rifugi di Sesto e San Candido (1500 – 2000 m, salita gratuita in cabinovia per tutti i componenti del gruppo). Nelle prossime settimane, tuttavia, aggiorneremo l’elenco inserendo anche sedi raggiungibili in pullman o auto: padiglioni musicali, malghe, laghi, castelli.

E’ importante sottolineare che tutte le località della Val Pusteria organizzeranno rigorosamente ogni evento in assoluta conformità a tutte le eventuali disposizioni che verranno fornite

 

NUMBER OF YOUR PERFORMANCES

The Alta Pusteria Festival is a non-competitive event, so you can choose number and kinds of your performances.

Regarding this, please consider that:
a) You may request a maximum of six performances;
b) it is mandatory participation in at least two performances: one real concert and one "Meeting-day";
c) it is optional participation in an "Open Air Review", in a second real concert, in a concert at the huts and at the "Choirs Night" in Villabassa.

AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTS

Concert halls: in most rooms it is available the piano. The larger rooms are also equipped with an amplification system with microphones and speakers.
Churches: in all churches it is available the liturgical organ, often placed in the choir located above the entrance to the church, far from the altar.
Of course, choirs who wish can carry their keyboard.
Outdoor performances: Regarding that, please note that in all the outdoor locations no keyboard instruments are available and that the choir will not be amplified with microphones and speakers. The repertoire to be presented in this kind of performances should therefore be a cappella or at most with accompaniment of "transportable" instruments from the choir (guitar, volino, flute ...).

NOTES ABOUT OUTDOOR PERFORMANCES

The outdoor performances (“Reviews” and “Concerts in the Huts”) are not compulsory.
The "Concert in the Huts" take place exclusively on the Dolomites, in the alpine huts close to Sesto and San Candido, at a height of 1500 – 2200 m: please note that you’ll have to take the cable car or chairlift to go up ("cabinovie" or "seggiovie").
Each choir should sing at least 20 minutes.

The "Open Air Reviews" take place at outdoor venues such lakes, castles, squares spread all over the whole valley which are all reachable by bus or car.
In each Open Air Review at least five choirs perform: each choir should sing max for 15 minutes.
