EUROPEAN CHOIR GAMES
06 Aug 2019
The Gibraltar Youth Choir under the direction of our Principal, Christian Santos will be travelling to Gothenburg, Sweden to compete representing Gibraltar at the European Choir Games from 7th -11th August.
The Gibraltar Youth Choir will be competing in the Pop / Jazz / Show Choir category with 31 choir members and live musicians from the Gibraltar Academy of Music and Performing Arts.
There will be over 6000 singers from 170 choirs competing at this event in different categories.
Austria, Germany and Latvia were already hosts for one of the most prestigious European choir competitions, the European Choir Games. In 2019 the 4th edition of the event will once again take place and explore a new destination: Sweden – nation of choristers!
With approximately 600 000 singers, choir singing is one of Sweden’s most popular movements and the country is thus a perfect location for this international singing event.
The host city for the event has been well chosen: Gothenburg, the country’s second largest city, is a genuine music city where music is close to people’s hearts. It has a lively alternative music culture and big arena stages. Culture and the arts take center stage in Gothenburg.
Singers from all over the world are invited to join, compete and celebrate a grand festival of choral music in Sweden at the Grand Prix of Nations Gothenburg 2019 & 4th European Choir Games.
The Choir would like to thank everyone who has supported them financially in order to make this happen. Thank you to HMGOG, Ministry of Culture, the Media, Youth & Sport Gibraltar Cultural Services and the Cultural Grants Committee and all the parents of the choir members past and present for their incessant work during fundraising activities.
