Officially Sponsored Invitational Festivals
Imagine hundreds of choristers and instrumentalists gathering in a small Tuscan vineyard town to spend four days sharing music together, or coming together in Vienna during the Advent season to perform amidst holiday celebrations for the local community. This is what our festivals offer – an opportunity to visit one city and perform for and with musicians from all over the world.
Music Contact International represents many municipal and cultural organizations in Europe, America, the Caribbean and Africa, that sponsor invitational music festivals and competitions. These exclusive festivals are offered by invitation only, and Music Contact International can assist your ensemble in obtaining an invitation.
Select the type of festival that best suits your group. Adjudicated Festivals, such as the Days of International Choir Music Festival in Verona, are an opportunity for your choir to perform before a panel of esteemed judges. We also represent festivals geared toward youth performers, like the Young Prague Festival. Many of our festivals, including the Cantus Salisburgensis Festival in Salzburg, offer participating choirs an occasion to join voices in a massed sing performance led by a prominent choral director.
Each festival offers the the highest quality venues, exchanges with foreign choirs, exciting Opening and Closing Ceremonies, and four-star hotels and services. Many of the festivals we represent also offer Complimentary Orientation programs for choir directors.
Enjoy browsing our festivals here, but be sure to call us to learn more about the unique elements that they offer your group.
