Bel Canto Choir Vilnius makes second appearance at prestigious Tolosa Choral Contest in Spain
Between October 29 and November 5, 2019, Bel Canto Choir Vilnius took part in the prestigious Tolosa International Choral Competition in the Basque province of Gipuzkoa, northern Spain. The contest is part of the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing, the best known and most prestigious network of choral contests in Europe.
We competed in the polyphonic and folk/pop music categories and received a combined rating of 8.1 points (81 percent) out of 10 (100 percent).
In addition to two performances on the competition stage in Tolosa, we performed four more concerts in various towns and cities around the Spanish Basque country. Our performances in Tolosa, San Sebastian, Zarautz, Lazkao and Uharte attracted approximately 3,600 concertgoers.
Our preparation for the contest, concert performances and leisure together – all of that in this album by our talented friend, photographer Mantas Gudzinevičius.
Bel Canto Choir Vilnius’ trip to the Tolosa International Choral Competition was partially financed by the Lithuanian Council for Culture.
