It is with great pleasure that I am going to take care of the organisation of the fifteenth edition of the Rimini International Choral Festival and Competition which will take place from 11 to 14 November 2021.
Last year, needless to say, has been marked by the tragedy of the coronavirus that has not made possible so many events in attendance, including our Competition. We thought it would be very sad to give it up completely, so we organised a virtual edition.
This year we are sure, especially thanks to the vaccine, that the situation will improve a lot, starting in spring, and therefore many choirs will finally want to sing and compete in the competition.
The Rimini International Choral Festival and Competition not merely aims to put choral ensembles in competition, but also to present to the public the characteristics and diversity of each group and repertoire.
I am looking forward to seeing you all together to celebrate a moment of music and friendship.
Welcome to Rimini, capital of hospitality and culture!
Andrea Angelini, Artistic Director of the Competition
