Aarhus Vocal Festival
May 30th to June 2nd 2019



Groups will once again be able to compete with one another in one of two Categories: The Vocal Group Category or The Choir Category.

Groups in each category will be given the task of arranging a chosen song decided by the festival. The specific song needs to be arranged and performed together with a free selection from each group’s own repertoire. All groups will be given 15 min. to perform in front of an international jury of vocal music experts.
