The One-Thousand-Choir Festival

The International Festival of Choral Singing "Alta Pusteria" is a non-competitive event that takes place in Val Pusteria (Alto Adige - Südtirol). It has an annual frequency and its program is divided into five days, from Wednesday to Sunday, during the last week of June. 
Born in 1998, in twenty-one editions it recorded the presence of about 1250 choirs and over 65,000 choristers from 45 countries representing the five continents.

The Festival program includes about sixty performances divided into real CONCERTS, OUTDOOR REVIEWS and DAYS-MEETING, which take place in the suggestive scenery of the Val Pusteria, from Brunico to Sillian, immediately after the border with Austria. 
The concerts held indoors, scheduled in theaters, halls and churches of the main towns of the valley, are flanked by suggestive open-air performances at lakes, medieval castles and all the Alpine refuges of Alta Pusteria, in the heart of the Dolomites.

The repertoire is absolutely free; no particular songs have to be performed mandatorily nor are there bans on particular periods or music genres.

The variety of places selected for the performances, the numerous events and the extremely rich repertoire make this Festival not only one of the most spectacular international choral festivals but also a unique opportunity of mutual and fruitful exchange between different musical cultures.
