European Choir Video Award
The announcement of the winner of the European Choir Video Award from European Choral Association - Europa Cantat’s Youth Committee will take place on the main stage in Piazza San Carlo after Open Singing tonight at 20.45. It was launched this year under the theme of ‘Movement in Performance’. All European choral or vocal ensembles were invited to submit videos of them performing, with the winner being assessed on creativity, uniqueness and technical ability. The jury for the award have met to make this difficult decision with many choirs of high ability and musicality. The top three choir’s videos will be played on the big screen and the winning vocal group will receive 1000 euro! (E.B.)
