6th International Choir and Orchestra festival in Lloret de Mar on the Costa Brava.

Participate in the Costa Brava Music Festival and experience the vibrant culture, music, and traditions of Catalonia. With the breathtaking beauty of the Costa Brava and Lloret De Mar’s traditional old town and golden beaches, this choir festival is sure to delight.

Cosmopolitan Costa Brava is one of the most distinctive regions in Spain and offers a wealth of things to do and see. Choirs can visit Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia, a cosmopolitan and historic city incorporating medieval districts and stunning architecture. This culturally rich city offers the famous sights of La Sagrada Familia Church, Park Guell, The Picasso Museum and Las Ramblas, a lively and colourful street favoured by artists, musicians, tourists and locals alike. Also just a short distance away is Girona, famous for its medieval architecture, walled Old Quarter (Barri Vell) and the Roman remains of the Força Vella fortress.

The Costa Brava Music Festival is a non-competitive event, open to all choirs. This unique festival provides the opportunity for choirs to meet and mingle with other participating choirs and to hear choral performances from around the world.

Program

Below is a sample itinerary for the festival of Peace and Brotherhood. This is for information purposes only. All final itineraries are tailored to individual choirs requirements.

Day 1

On arrival in Barcelona, choirs are met by their local guide for private coach transfer to hotels.
Flight time permitting, choir can set off on a guided sightseeing tour of Barcelona and see the city's many highlights first-hand. Admire the fanciful La Sagrada Familia church, see the Gothic Quarter and take a stroll down Las Ramblas.

In the evening, relax over a welcome dinner.

Day 2

Following a leisurely buffet breakfast at the hotel, choirs can take an optional excursion to the mountain monastery of Montserrat, Catalonia's most important religious centre and site of the Black Madonna or alternatively, can spend the day in Barcelona where art lovers can visit the Picasso Museum or perhaps simply walk the famous Las Ramblas to the Port Vell commercial area with its many restaurants and markets.
In the afternoon, choirs participate in the festival parade after which all choirs join together in song.

We would be delighted to arrange dinner on request.

Day 3

This morning, enjoy a leisurely buffet breakfast at the hotel.
This morning, see the city of Girona "the city of four rivers" Built on an ancient route linking Spain to the rest of Europe, the walled city of Girona is one of Spain's most enchanting cities. Here you will have time to stroll through the town's historic streets and alleyways filled with relics from the Jewish and Arab legacy that flourished there, and to visit the Gothic Cathedral with one of the world's widest aisle-less naves and a Romanesque cloister.

In the afternoon choirs have time to rehearse before performing their festival concert. In the evening, relax over a farewell dinner and relive your performances throughout the festival.
