Cantate Toscana

Cantate Toscana

​The International Choir Festival Cantate Toscana” will undoubtedly take place in the best season to take a trip to Tuscany.
You can visit the most beautiful cities of Tuscany – “Florence and Siena,” you will make new friends with local choirs and other foreign choirs, exchange music and learn about different cultures.

The friendship concerts take place on Friday afternoon or evening in a Church in the city centre of Siena or in a concert hall in Siena and surroundings hosted by a local choir. At a friendship concert choirs will come together with a local choir. After the concert the choirs will drink a glass of local wine from Tuscany together and end the evening in a pleasant and friendly atmosphere.

The festival ends on Saturday afternoon with the final concert in a concert hall or in a church in the city centre of Florence with all participants. Each choir presents two songs of his choice and at the end all choirs will sing a final song together.

Music is culture! And Tuscany is rich in these ingredients. The care of the music culture would not only contribute to the growth of our artistic heritage, but also contribute to the construction of the social fabric of connections and experiences of socialization. Tuscany is the perfect setting for an international choral festival. The singing of your songs will be the symbol of a universal language without borders!
