Europa Cantat Festival

The Major Choral Festival in Europe

Every three years since 1961, the European Choral Association organises a unique festival in a different country: the EUROPA CANTAT festival.

The event gathers over 4000 participants coming from all over Europe and the world to share their passion for singing and discover one another’s cultures by attending ateliers and workshops, perform in final concerts, listen to invited choirs, eat, sleep and have fun together.

The tradition of the EUROPA CANTAT Festivals goes back as far as 1961. Want to know more about our history? Check it out here!
