Entering the Chorus Review and the Contest for Vocal Ensembles is now possible
For the Contest for Vocal Ensembles there will first be a qualifying round, based on recordings submitted by the ensembles before the 31st of January. The jury will choose the finalists and they will be informed at the end of February. The contest is divided into two categories, ensembles performing acoustically and ensembles performing with electronic amplification. The winners will be chosen by an international jury in the final round held on the Tampere Vocal Music Festival in June and in the concluding concert of the Contest for Vocal Ensembles on 8th of June in Tampere Hall.
To enter the Chorus Review, please pay the participation fee and fill in the online entry form before the 28th of February. Participating choirs are free to choose their repertoire, although it should focus on a cappella performances. All choirs will be sent a diploma awarded by the jury, together with a written assessment from the jury. Hence participating the Chorus Review is a good way of measuring the quality of the choir and receiving new ideas from others to develop technical and artistic skills of the choir. The Chorus Review and the Tampere Vocal Music Festival will culminate on Sunday 11th of June at the concluding concert of the Chorus review held in Tampere Hall.
