International choir contest “GOLDEN VOICES OF MONTSERRAT” – it is one of the biggest international choir competitive festivals in the world for professional and amateur nonprofit choirs. Annually this festival gathers a lot of choirs turning the Costa Brava – one of the Spanish coasts – into the center of the singing world. An impressive opening of the contest and a bright memorizable final concert will become an emotional framing of this grand event in lives of all the choirs and singers.
Apart from the professional competitive program among choirs from different countries and you get a possibility to sing in the basilica of a monastic complex Montserrat together with a choir of boys Escalonia which is known all over the world. This competitive choir festival “Golden voices of Montserrat” is full of friendly meetings, master classes given by the conductors of the best world’s choirs, round tables, specialized trainings which have no analogs in festival motions, final rehearsals, revelation of leaders, memorizable flash mob on one of the most beautiful Mediterranean coasts near the town Hall of Lloret de Mar. A unique audio track is made annually specifically for this contest, and upon the arrival of the choirs to the contest a joint recording is made. The final concert of the festival will become a vivid closing of this grand event because singing itself will become a crown of the final canticle, when thousands of voices will blend together.
