From 5 to 13 July 2023, hundreds of young singers from all over the continent will gather in Ghent. They come here to sing together and to enjoy fine ateliers, beautiful concerts and special moments of friendship in a great international atmosphere.
Europa Cantat Junior is a unique festival for children and youth choirs, regardless of their level or experience. There is also plenty to do for conductors and everyone interested in singing with children, in the study tour. Come to Europa Cantat Junior with your choir and take part in a workshop for an entire week. At the end of the week, this culminates in a big final concert. Meanwhile, also discover the beautiful city of Ghent and enjoy all other things the festival offers, the daily Open Singing, the Choir-to-choir concerts, the afternoon activities and much more.
The festival is fully booked.
And... what an overwhelming response so far: more than 1200 singers from 50 choirs and 12 countries have registered! This means the festival is fully booked. But there is a waiting list. So maybe you can still participate. In case of cancellations, choirs on the waiting list are contacted. The waiting list is active until March 15th. Mail us on info [at] ecj2023.be if you need more info. Individual participants; conductors, music teachers and students can still register for the study tour until 1 March 2023.
