With pleasure we INVITE you (Folk ensembles, Choral groups, Ballroom dance teams, art schools, Music theatre, modern dance teams, orchestras and majorette teams), (children and youth  groups) to participate on  XI COSTA BRAVA CATALONIA INTERNATIONAL EASTER CHOIR  FESTIVAL from 03-06 april 2025 

The Festival will be held the weekend after Easter, and it will serve as a perfect conclusion for the Spain Holy Week Celebrations, which are definetly amongst the most popular around  the world.  Apart from that, the Festival will be held in one of the most beautiful regions of Spain, the Catalonia area, where all the International Choirs participating  are going to meet up and exchange their cultural and choral views and their respecitve countries traditions.

Apart from the popularity of the Spanish Holy Week celebrations, as already stated, the Catalonia and Costa Brava region are one of the most touristic regions in Spain.   Costa Brava is a marvellous place spreading over an area of 160 km and well known for its unique large sandy beaches, unexploited nature and various fishing villages.  Costa Brava is also well know for its medieval villages with unique castles and fortifications, which are so much appreciated by tourists who love art and architecture.

there is also Girona, another popular tourist site in this region, so famous for its gothic cathedral which rises right in the medieval historic city centre.

For all this and for much more, this International Festival will be a unique occassion for all participant choirs, who will be able to be part of the conclusive celebrations of the Spanish Holy Week celebrations, by performing in various beautiful baroque churches in this region, together with local Spanish choirs.

The festival is not competitive, and is open for mixed choirs, male choirs, women's choirs, youth choirs, sacred music choirs, gospel choirs, folk music choirs, etc.

Each choir can perform in its own style but must keep in mind that this Festival is being held in Catholic Churches and so song list must include sacred songs, with an Easter theme if possible and maybe even gospel songs. Each choir can perform "a cappella", or can be accompanied by piano organ or other musical instruments. The Organisation will arrange for the use of the respective churches piano organs. If the piano organ of a particular church could not be used, it will be replaced by an electric piano/keyboard.  Any other instruments must be brought over by the respective choir.

The group will be accommodated in a 3-4 star Hotel on half board basis.
