The American International Choral Festival
Monterey, the enchanting “Language Capital of the World” south of San Francisco, welcomes in 2016 choirs from all parts of the world in order to sing together and to reach for the Golden State Choral Trophy. Participants will not only have the possibility to take part in the competition but also to attend workshops led by international choral experts and to get to know the loveliness of Monterey’s coast first hand: The stunning peninsula represents a breath-taking composition of land, sea and sky and is considered as one of the most beauteous destinations in the world.
The Choral Trophy competition will take place during the „Indian Summer”, the perfect travel season for the West Coast due to the extraordinary dry, warm and sunny weather. On November 24 America will celebrate Thanksgiving, so that American singers can enjoy this big choral meeting a few days longer and spend this public holiday as well as Black Friday together with their families on the Monterey peninsula.
