„Coro fantastico“ stands for fantastic stories about your choir. In 2012 we visited the INTERKULTUR choir competitions and festivals and captured the most beautiful impressions in countless exciting pictures for you.
In the course of the video series „Coro fantastico“ we will show you during the next weeks entertaining and enjoyable reviews of international choir competitions and festivals in 2012. Maybe your choir is also already part of it?
We launch “Coro fantastico” featuring a group from Latvia: Lielvarde Children’s Choir .
(dt) The Lielvarde Children’s Choir is a fantastic Latvian children’s choir. This choir and its conductor Baiba Klepere belong to the most loyal choirs that have participated in international choir competitions and festivals held by INTERKULTUR so far. This likeable choir appeared for the first time on stage during the choir competitions series “In…Canto Sul Garda” in Riva del Garda in 1997.
During their participation in the Choir Olympics 2004 in Bremen and the World Choir Games in Graz 2008 the little ones from Latvia proved the international audience and choirs from all over the world that they belong to the major players regarding choral music.
They did not only score gold in Bremen in the category „Folklore a cappella“, but also in Graz in the popular category „Children’s Choirs“. This achievement was something very special regarding the fact that the World Choir Games meanwhile are the biggest choral competition worldwide with 441 participating choirs from 93 nations.
But the children’s choir from Lielvarde does not only show high performance during competitions but also captures the hearts of the audiences.
During the last evening at the Grand Prize competition of the „Concorso Corale Internazionale“ in Riva del Garda 2012 they presented a very touching entrance. About 40 children, dressed in traditional costumes and bows in their pigtails, stood on stage and thanked the audience with a smile on their faces.
