Verona Choir competition

(From 03 to 07 April 2019)

The romantic city of Verona was the setting of Shakespeare‘s classic love story, Romeo and Juliet. Red-roofed and pastel- shaded, Verona lies in a bend of the river Adige as it winds its way south from the Alps. Apart from Rome itself, Verona is Italy‘s best preserved Roman city, with a Roman bridge, Roman gates and the famous Roman amphitheatre, the Arena of Verona. Verona is a well preserved Romanesque, Gothic and Renaissance city, with beautiful frescoed churches and houses. Rich with tradition, this city is a perfect choral destination. The Verona Choir Competition is held in a local theatre of Verona where choirs have a maximum of fifteen minutes to perform their chosen pieces, judged by a panel of seven internationally acclaimed adjudicators. The Closing Ceremony ends with a grand procession from the reception through the city of Verona to the Roman Arena, where all guest choirs will join together to perform Va Pensiero by G.Verdi, Inno Alla Gioia by L. van Beethoven and Amazing Grace by J.Newton.
