It is with great pleasure that I am going to take care of the organisation of the sixteenth edition of the Rimini International Choral Festival and Competition which will take place from 14 to 18 September 2022.
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, because of the improvement in the health situation, especially thanks to the vaccine, we have decided that it is time to return to the competition in presence.
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 look forward to meeting you, finally in presence, to celebrate a moment of music and friendship.
Welcome to Rimini, capital of hospitality and culture!
Andrea Angelini, Artistic Director of the Competition
The Competition, during the past editions, has received the following patronages:
