Various Voices 2018 in Munich: Choir registration is closed
The organising team of Various Voices 2018 München announced the closing of choir registration.
This is because already 90 choirs and ensembles have registered and more than 3,100 participants are expected.
Nevertheless there was set up a waiting list in case that choirs cancel their registration. To get on that waiting list please register your choir on the festival website.
As soon as the organising team is able to estimate the number of participans and to admit more choirs they will contact you for proper registration. Until then no payment is required.
Update 22.5.2017: The organisers brought in the order of registration the last choirs of the waiting list to the festival. The amount of the max. number of participating choirs with 100 choirs is reached now, with an estimated number of 3.400 participants. Various Voices has decided to bring no more choirs of the waitinglist to the festival even if some choirs will cancel their registration, in order to provide even some festival tickets to the Munich public audience.
Various Voices 2022 - Call for bids
Various Voices is the European Gay and Lesbian Choral Festival and this is a call for bids for choruses to host our 15th Festival in 2022.
Our 12th Festival, held in London 2009, attracted 60 choirs and 2,000 singers from 14 countries in what was a spectacular and extra-ordinary four-day event. The 13th Various Voices festival, held in Dublin from 13.-16. June 2014, hosted by Gloria, Dublin's Lesbian and Gay choir, registered almost 80 choruses from Europe and around the world.
The upcoming 14th festival will be held in Munich on 9-13 May 2018 and is hosted by the four local choirs Philhomoniker, Melodiva, Regenbogenchor and Lilamunde.This and the previous events were and are a fantastic testament to the continuing popularity of gay choral festivals.
At the recent Legato Annual Meeting 2016 we found that communication and PR of Legato can be improved. A simple and fast way to achieve this goal is to make a better use of the possibilities that social media offer.
Various Voices 2018: Registration for choirs is open
The Munich team is ready: the registration for VARIOUS VOICES 2018 has started!
Be there in spring 2018 when through our music, we dream of a world of solidarity beyond continents and language barriers: Out, loud, proud!
