The Choral Association "CANTICA NOVA", which has been performing under the name of “CANTICA NOVA” Vocal Ensemble since 1989, is promoting and organizing the III edition of international choral festival, entitled “InCanto Mediterraneo”.
The ensemble’s participation in important international choral festivals has not only given it international visibility, and some significant awards, but also allowed it to acquire the necessary experience to organize an event of distinction.
The “InCanto Mediterraneo” international choral festival will be held between 18th and 24th August 2013 (from Sunday to Saturday).
The festival includes a non-competitive “exhibition” section on 18th, 20th and 22th August, and a “competition” section (with various categories) on 23th and 24th August 2013.
The opening of the Festival will take place on Sunday 18th August, with a concert by the vocal ensemble “Cantica Nova”, who, as organizers of the Festival, will not take part in the “competition” section.
All performances will be open to the public, and in the presence of a qualified international Jury chosen by the Festival’s Artistic Directors.
The competition section will be officially opened by the Organizing Committee on Thursday 22th August, with a welcoming ceremony for all the choirs participating in the competition. During their stay in Milazzo all the participating choirs, as well as Cantica Nova, will give informal open-air performances in the squares, streets and alleys around the town in order to create a festive atmosphere during Festival week.
