Afte getting the 3rd award in the International Choir Competition of Tolosa 3 months ago, Landarbaso Choir wants to face new challenges in 2012! Between the 5-8 July Landarbaso will participate in the 49th International Competition of Choral Singing of Spittal an der Drau (Austria).
It will not be the first time that Landarbaso will take part in this wonderful competition. In 2004 Landarbaso took part in Spittal getting the People’s Choice Award and being one of the most moving competitions that we have ever enjoyed.
As well as in 2004, Landarbaso Choir will participate in 2-3 different sections. The poliphonic music section will be divided in two different parts: on the one hand the choir has to perform the required 3 pieces by the organization of the competition and on the other hand, in a separated performance, the choir has to sing another 3 pieces of its own choice. Finally, in the Folk Songs or Folklore section Landarbaso will be able to show an small part of basque traditional songs.
The awards got in the last years makes the standard higher but also give us the power to face new challenges and be able to compete against the great choirs that we will meet in Spittal an der Drau.
