Every May, choirs and song ensembles take Vaasa by storm, offering both residents and visitors unforgettable musical experiences. Vaasa Choir Festival is a five-day long, major international event of vocal and choir music, open to all choirs and vocal ensembles.
Dozens of concerts take place all over the city and the Vaasa region during the festival: song and choir music can be heard in churches, concert halls, schools and homes for the elderly. Restaurants and shopping centres also join in the fun. The festival’s main performers are top artists from Finland and around the world, representing various forms of song and choral music. World music, barbershop and more traditional choir music go hand in hand at this happy event.
Vaasa Choir Festival offers choirs a fun place to perform and an opportunity to network and meet colleagues. Your task as the listener is to enjoy and make some difficult choices: there’s so much to enjoy, you won’t be able to participate in every event, but you’re sure to find your favourites in the wide-ranging programme.
