The festival will take place at the Toronto Centre for the Arts and other site-specific venues from July 26 to 28, 2019.
The Canada International Choral Festival aims to bring together an international panel of choral exchange, education and performance through a unique choral journey. This year, choirs from Ottawa,Montreal, Toronto, Africa and China will join together to present a showcase concert of unforgettable music. It will feature a programme of exceptional choral music finishing with the performance of a special piece by the massed choirs.
CICF will be presenting three top awards with cash rewards. Gold,Silver, Bronze and Participation Certificates will be also presented to corresponding choirs according to their performances in the competition.
Moreover, this year’s festival will invite five choral masters to teach master classes for all the participating choirs and chorus enthusiasts. The three-day festival will end up with the closing and awards ceremony. Winners of this year will be invited to perform their best pieces on the ceremony.
There is nothing better than choral music to unite a community and serve as a bridge between cultures, nationalities and generations. Between the hot competition and intensive performances, various exchange activities will be arranged for some foreign choirs and local communities.
