Corfu International Festival & Choir Competition
Event Date: October 12, 2016-October 16, 2016
Posted: March 1, 2016
Supported by the Corfu Choir Union, the "1st Corfu International Festival & Choir Competition" will bring choral singers from all over the world to the capital of the Ionian Islands and makes it resound. Corfu is the greenest island in Greece. Apart from the beautiful bays, long beaches and impressive cliffs, the roughly 600 square kilometer island is covered with olive groves. The Mediterranean flair of the island has always attracted millions of tourists – also Empress Elisabeth spent the possibly even happiest years of her life in Corfu. The historic city centre of Corfu was added in 2007 to the UNESCO world cultural heritage list.
Already during ancient and later on medieval times this island was exposed to the influence of different cultures, especially of the republic of Venice, which mingled with Greek-orthodox traditions and led to the independent culture visible nowadays. Maintaining the well-known categories, which have been characterizing our INTERKULTUR competitions since years we want to pay special attention to jazz music during this new event. Furthermore we offer after the event in Corfu an exclusive participation in a concert in one of Athens most famous concert halls, the Megaron.
