Welcome to Rimini, capital of hospitality and culture!

It is with great pleasure that I am going to take care of the organisation of the fourteenth edition of the Rimini International Choral Competition (online) which will take place from 11 to 13 December 2020. This 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 have organised a virtual edition.

Instead we decided to postpone until 2021 the second edition of the World Choral Championship, the Grand Prix among the winners of the Competitions in Rimini, Tokyo, Krakow and Taipei. 

The 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.

The Competition, during its editions, has received the following patronages:
