2nd Corfu International Festival & Choir Competition
September 12 - 16, 2018 Corfu, Greece
Sing on the Green Island!
Supported by the Corfu Choir Union, the "2nd Corfu International Festival & Choir Competition" will bring choral singers from all over the world to the capital of the Ionian Islands in 2018 again.
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 center of Corfu was added to the UNESCO world cultural heritage list in 2007.
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.
