Spring has finally arrived and while the swallows return saying goodbye to the past winter, Musicanova Choir continues to prepare for its exhibition at the international Choir competition “Florilège Vocal de Tours”, whose participation has officially been confirmed. The prestigious competition, which has now reached the 46th edition, takes place in the city of Tours from the 26th to the 28th of May. The “Florilège Vocal de Tours” is also one of the six competitions of the international Choral Grand Prix circuit, one of the most important amateur choral competitions in the world.
In the selection of music we will be performing, there are sacred pieces, by authors such as Gallus and Monteverdi, as well as profane pieces composed by both ancient authors, like Orlando di Lasso and Gesualdo, and contemporary authors, such as Grieg and Lauridsen. Along with these pieces we will be performing others from the French folklore, since they are compulsory for the competition, and Italian folk pieces, such as Ohili Ohila. Some of these pieces will be performed in the upcoming concerts, so stay tuned for the dates!
