V International Choir Festival Junior 2018 - Barcellona

The V International Choir Festival Junior 2018 will be held in Barcelona from May 22 to May 27, 2018.

Festival Languages: Spanish and English

Categories
We summon all choral groups conformed for children and young people (up to 20 years old) to participate in this NON-COMPETITIVE event.
Participation Requirements
Choirs wishing to participate in this edition of "Corearte Junior 2018" must send the following to the organization:
- Registration Form (available on our website)
- Brief resume of the choir and its director
- Recent recording of two works in the choir's repertoire
- Recent photo of the group and its director

Deadlines: Form must be sent via email by April 15, 2018.
The list of people in the delegation must be confirmed by April 20. No changes will be made after this date.

Repertoire and Instruments: The organization provides a piano or an electronic keyboard, depending on the location. If the choir needs other instruments they must provide them. Some locations do not allow the amplification of instruments. Consult with the organization. The repertoire for the different festival performances must be sent in before April 20, 2018. The organization will send each choir the concert times and locations in advance.

Workshops
The choral singing workshops are one of the focal activities for the organization. These give participants the opportunity to work with internationally renowned teachers and share their rehearsal with the other participants.
This year the Festival Junior will be honored to receive María Guinand, a renowned conductor from Venezuela.
In order to make the most of the workshops, participants should bring their learned pieces to allow the workshop teacher to focus on style and interpretive issues rather than music theory.
A dress rehearsal will take place before the closing concert of the Festival, in which the pieces worked on during the workshop will be performed.

Concerts
The stages for concert performances are chosen for their acoustic quality and their cultural and/or architectural significance, thus providing participating choirs an opportunity to sing in landmark places of the city.

Festival activities will begin on Tuesday, May 22 at 3:00 pm, so groups are requested to arrive before that time.
