The organization hopes that many chamber choirs from all parts of the world will come to the Dutch city of Kerkrade to enter into a musical battle. But also to meet each other, to sing together and to give beautiful concerts. CantaRode 2018 was won ex aequo by the young ladies’ choir Amaranthe from Oudenaarde in Belgium and the choir of the maritime university of Szczecin in Poland.
The registration for CantaRode International Choir Festival 2019 has been opened. Women’s choirs, male choirs and mixed choirs that meet the requirements can register before 15 December 15th, 2018.
The program includes a competition between the participating choirs, but there are also concerts in the region and workshops. There is also room for spontaneous performances and meetings between singers. In addition to choirs from abroad, CantaRode hopes that choirs from all over the Netherlands will also register.
