Welcome to Rimini, the capital of hospitality and culture!
It gives me great pleasure to organise the 11th edition of the ‘City of Rimini International Choral Competition’ (RICC2017), which will take place from 21 to 24 September 2017. Choral singing, especially in the last few years, has improved in quality thanks to the precious and tireless contribution of thousands of supporters. It is no longer an area for just a niche audience but, on the contrary, has gained an important place in the field of music.
The aim of the Rimini Choral Competition is not only to have groups competing against one another, but also to present the characteristics and diversities of each choir and repertoire to the audience. The event will take place in the beautiful setting of this ancient Roman city, well known for the beauty of its beaches and rich in monuments from a splendid past.
I shall be happy to welcome you to Rimini to celebrate together the beauties of music and friendship!
