A CHORAL SEASON FULL OF

PREMIERES AND TRADITIONS

Dear friends and choral lovers,

Since 1988 we have been trying to bring you

the very best of choral music traditions, novelties

and opportunities. Our efforts have

been an ongoing investment to foster unity,

inspire change and bring a new viewpoint on

the choral world. The 2016 and 2017 choral

years will be packed with everything that delights

your mind and soul.

Starting off with the brand new ON STAGE

series, 2016 will lay ahead opportunities for

new top destinations, genre experimentation

and some fun away from the competition

schedule. Top world attractions like Paris,

Prag, Barcelona and the like will shed a whole

new light on the idea of choral singing. No

categories, no jury, no competitive air – this

time we sing for the people, for the joy of singing,

the joy of life.

Competitions bear, however, our quality seal

and a big part of our efforts goes to further

improve and extend the network for those

wishing to reach us. In 2016 we are setting

foot in two great American destinations, Provo/Salt

Lake City, Utah, and Monterey, California,

and to a new Asian exotic spot, Chiang

Mai, Thailand. We cannot wait to experience

again that beautiful wave of enthusiasm and

support we witnessed in Cincinnati and are

eager to explore the mystic land of Thailand.

I bet, you too!

But our path to success is paved also with the

traditions we have strived to build and perfect

with each passing year. The bell of the

World Choir Games tolls every two years to

remind us of such a powerful tradition. Following

Riga’s spectacular Games, choirs from

all corners of the world look forward to another

huge gathering of international choral

excellence in 2016 in Sochi, Russia.

What better way to unite the world than

through music? AND through friends we

make along the way. Since the very beginning

of INTERKULTUR activities, two choirs,

the Gesangverein „Harmonie“ 1906 Watzenborn-Steinberg

e.V. and the Gesangverein

Sängerkranz 1876 Watzenborn-Steinberg

e.V. , just a few steps from our office, have

been part of our events. In June, they together

celebrate 250 years of choral tradition

in the Pohlheim Choir Festival and we

are proud to share a part of this celebration

with you. Join the Party and meet the INTER-

KULTUR Team on their summer party bevor

heading to Sochi for the magic of the World

Choir Games.

An exciting choral season awaits. Let’s all

make beautiful memories out of it!

COMMITTED TO QUALITY AND INNOVATION

The preview of our INTERKULTUR events gives

you a good insight into the variety of projects

which will be presented to the choirs,

singers and choral conductors all over the

world in the upcoming months.

Our choral season focuses mostly on choir

competitions and festivals, which take place

in traditional venues, such as Vienna, Bad

Ischl, Grado, Calella, as well as in the US, now

under a new concept and in four different cities

(Provo, Monterey, Princeton and Miami),

and for the first time in Thailand. In particular,

we look forward to a Grand Prix event at

the Berlin Philharmonic Hall and to the 3 rd

European Choir Games & Grand Prix of Nations

2017 in Riga, the city that was already

a sensational host to the 8 th World Choir Games.

INTERKULTUR has evolved tremendously

in the last years. Our invitation goes to all

choirs in the world, regardless of the artistic

level they have, to make use of the individually

tailored program we are going to offer.

We can proudly say that the level of the

choirs has greatly improved in every aspect,

making our events a top destination for the

best choirs of the world. Our events are a

warm welcome of their talent and a tough

challenge for their competitive spirits with

intense performances and busy schedules.

And this is how it should go on.

This year our program has become even

more diverse.

Whether it is the “ON STAGE” events, the

World Choir Games, workshops, singing together

or sing along concerts, all the possibilities

of making music and learning from

each other have gotten a high priority. We

look forward to working with this year‘s

“composer in residence”, the English composer

John Rutter in Sochi.

You, dear interested choirs, can decide on

your own on the dimensions of your participation.

Make your program according to

your own interests or combine the various

possibilities our events offer. Our professional

staff will help you to find your place in

the INTERKULTUR family.

We are aware that our INTERKULTUR events

may not have any direct impact on political

developments. Nevertheless, we are deeply

convinced that the reciprocal knowledge

and mutual understanding are key drivers

for a peaceful merger of nations. You cannot

make music against each other; you can

make music only for each other. “Singing

together brings nations together” has been

our slogan from the very beginning and we

want people to feel it in their hearts and

minds. The quality of our events revolves

around this central idea and it is to it that

we have devoted our many years of experience

and enthusiasm for the choral music.
