The Second annual

Croatia International Choir Festival

July 2nd – 5th, 2019


Croatia welcomes you with beautiful blue skies and smiles just as wide! ​ The historic city of Zagreb is the focal point of the second edition of the Croatia International Choir Festival. Performances, workshops and activities will take place at different locations throughout the city over a 4 day period. Choirs will be given opportunities to present individual and joint performances culminating in a gala performance at the HGZ Croatian Music Institute. ​ The Festival also provides participating choirs with a variety of performance and tour opportunities throughout Croatia before and after the core Festival events in Zagreb. We encourage all groups to speak with us about enhancing your Festival experience and getting the most out of your visit to Croatia. We want to give everyone an experience to remember!


All of the festival choirs will showcase their own repertoire with performances in a variety of venues, including the Concert Hall at the HGZ Croatian Music Institute and historic churches throughout Zagreb. Singers will also have the opportunity to participate in workshop experiences with some of Croatia’s leading choral experts. Like most festivals, cultural exchange is very important and during the festival choirs will have the chance to meet and engage with each other through social and music interaction culminating with a joint performance onstage of one or two pieces at the end of the Gala Concert.  Of course participants will also have free time to enjoy all the city of Zagreb has to offer.

Istria, formerly Histria, is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. The peninsula is located at the head of the Adriatic between the Gulf of Trieste and the Kvarner Gulf. It is shared by three countries: Croatia, Slovenia, and Italy. The rocky coastline, with hilltop villages have many beautiful rustic locations for sightseeing opportunities that are very popular with adventurers.
National park Plitvice Lakes is considered one of the most beautiful national parks in the world featuring an intoxicating mixture of oak forests, meadows, rocks and lakes. A visit to the park is one of the highlights of the festival providing each guest with a visceral opportunity to explore the natural beauty of this enchanting land. The chain of lakes are joined by stunning waterfalls that provide every visitor with memories to last a lifetime.
One of the four historical regions of Croatia, Dalmatia proudly possesses one of Europe’s most dramatic shorelines, as the dark and imposing wall of the coastal mountains opens down towards a lush coastal band dotted with Olive groves and stunning beaches. Although broad in scope and consisting of some harsh natural wilderness, Dalmatia is also home to surprisingly intimate villages, which can often be found just a few minutes’ stroll from the coastal strip and are home to a variety of vibrant outdoor performances.
