Dear fellow Conductors and Choristers,
We are happy to invite you to the 9th Festival Coros de Verão, held in scenic and culturally rich Belém district in Lisbon, Portugal from 26 – 29 June 2020. As with our previous editions, the festival is a collaboration between EGEAC from Portugal and SourceWerkz from Singapore. This international gathering of goodwill is the perfect mirror of the Portuguese way to receive foreigners – with open arms.
The charming city of Lisbon hosts the Festival Coros de Verão that is designed as a platform for choirs to partake not only in high-level competition, but also to provide valuable and exciting performance opportunities. This year’s festival also sees the addition of new education programmes and the 1st Grand Prix of the festival with cash prizes totaling €6,000. All participating choirs will sing at various city landmarks in the historical district to enthusiastic audiences.
Over the past editions, we have had the honour of hosting some of the most artistic and culturally-diverse choirs, and this year is no different. Come and join us at the 9th Festival Coros de Verão for a great choral and intercultural experience!
With warmest regards,
Dr. Paulo Vassalo Lourenço Artistic Director, Festival Coros de Verão, Director of Choral Studies at the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa, Portugal
