About the Venice Music Festival

Travel to Venice for the Venice Music Festival and explore the wonder of this great city with your choir.  The festival takes place annually in May. The Venice Music Festival offers your choir the chance to see the beautiful city of Venice as well as performing for and with other international choirs in wonderful Venetian venues. For many, Venice is the most beautiful city in the world, and the city offers a fascinating array of architectural wealth and beauty. Since 1987 Venice and its lagoon have been on the UNESCO-list of cultural heritage sites.  The heart of Venice, the Piazza San Marco with the gorgeous Basilica, is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Sing with your choir in the beautiful surroundings of Venice and Jesolo and enjoy guided visits to Venice, Verona and Lake Garda.
This unique city awaits you and your choir.
 

Venice

Venice really is one of the few cities on earth that genuinely can be called unique and when you arrive you will be staggered that every painting, TV programme or photograph you have ever seen of this wonderful place is telling the simple truth: Venice is one of the most beautiful cities on earth! You cannot walk for more than a few minutes without admiring an amazing church, museum, swish restaurant or just a stunning view that can only be this wondrous city. It has a unique atmosphere too - from the bustle of St Mark’s Square, home to arguably the world’s most beautiful basilica to the quieter areas where time has stood still and you can enjoy an unhurried coffee in this most Italian of cities. Venice today is so much more than art, monuments and buildings. It has a quieter side too; wander where your feet take you and lose yourself in the tangle of alleys within the delightful smaller parishes, discovering another Venice – that of the Venetians. Here are the traditional shops heaving with colourful fresh vegetables, children playing in the streets and the locals stopping to pass a few words in the street.
