European Choir Games is one of Europe’s largest choir festivals, an exciting championship and a musical celebration.
Swedish choral singing straight from the heart. Traditional choral singing in Swedish national romantic style that describes nature’s flavors and greenery, and newly written choral music mixed with rhythms from marimba and folk music, in arrangements for choir singing.
Welcome to an evening where feelings and expressions are united with unique tones from three different choirs!
Ten of Europe’s best amateur choirs will try to impress a panel of international choral music stars by performing an unaccompanied selection of music in a variety of styles. Blending spectacular staging and a live stadium ambience with eclectic and profound musical performances from a wide range of traditions and cultures, Eurovision Choir will take viewers on a colourful journey across Europe in search of the continent’s pre-eminent amateur vocal group.
Experience the powerful closing concert where up to 500 international singers give their best, together with the Gothenburg Symphony. You also get to experience the praised á cappella trio Solala and the fantastic musical artist Annika Herlitz.
The musical theme is a common thread through the evening and you also get to experience the ceremonial delegation to the next country that will host the European Choir Games.
