Welcome dear friends!
Among those who’ve seen it in person, the conclusion is unanimous: Venice is the most beautiful city in the world, and the only one that can truly be described as unique. Each building is a work of art, with their beauty enhanced when reflected on the canals that cross the city. Its magical scenery is fascinating and breathtaking at first sight, evoking the feeling of entering the setting of a real-life fairy tale. It’s perhaps even unfair to all other cities to call Venice a city, as it is a place unlike any other, that no other can compare to, or ever be like.
For these reasons I warmly invite your choir at the only choral competition that really takes part in Venice (and not in the neighboring places, such as Jesolo or Caorle…). You will sing at the beautiful ‘Auditorium Santa Margherita and at the Church of ‘St. Salvador’. And if you are the lucky winners of the Grand Prix you will have the honor to sing the Sunday Mass at the beautiful ‘Basilica dei Frari’.
