The Choral Association "CANTICA NOVA", which has been performing under the name of “CANTICA NOVA” Vocal Ensemble since 1989, is promoting and organizing an 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 11th and 18th September 2011 (from Sunday to Sunday).

The festival includes a non-competitive “exhibition” section on 12th, 13th and 14th September, and a “competition” section (with various categories) on 16th, 17th and 18th September 2011.

The opening of the Festival will take place on Sunday 11th September, 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 15th September, 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.
