October 19 – 23, 2023 – Calella/Barcelona, Spain
Holiday Experience and Choral Singing by the Mediterranean Sea
Since 2012 the annual festival “Canta al mar – Festival Coral International” in Calella and Barcelona is a must-attend event for many choirs from around the world.
Sunny weather, long sandy beaches, short walking-distances as well as sightseeing and performance opportunities in Barcelona with concerts and competitions in the world-renowned Cathedral and the nearby 15th century church Santa Maria del Pi, make this festival a unique experience for all participants.
Events like “Calella Sings” in the historic city center and the “Fiesta de la amistad” with the local delights “paella y sangría” as well as a huge choir party create extensive opportunities to meet the locals and to socialize with fellow singers from around the world.
Enjoy a happy and relaxed choral event on the Spanish Mediterranean coast in a festival that beautifully combines holiday experiences and love for music perfectly!
