Choir to choir
Every participant group can perform during the Choir to choir concert. The organisation will communicate the day and the exhibition order close to the festival. The concerts are divided into several days and in different locations and provide for each choir the presentation of two pieces taken from their own repertoire (maximum duration 5 minutes). The piece must be indicated at the time of registration. In the concerts, pre-recorded musical accompaniment is not allowed and we kindly invite you to choose a repertoire from your own country.
Gran Concerto di Primavera - atelier's concert
On Saturday afternoon, all the ateliers will perform in the Gran Concerto di Primavera. Depending on the number of choirs participating at the festival, the concert could be divided into two parts (morning and afternoon). Before the beginning of thefestival, in due time, the definitive program will be announced.
Arie di Primavera
Music surprises with performances by guest choirs will enrich the music offer of the event.
On the opening night of the second week, the Italian Youth Choir will perform a concert for the participants of the festival. The choir is conducted by Luigi Marzola and Carlo Pavese.
All transportation costs to reach or leave Montecatini Terme are at charge of every participating group, such as the bus entrance tax and the bus parking payments (you can find the fees on www.montecatiniparcheggi.it).
All the festival venues are reachable by walking.
Montecatini Terme is easily reachable for those who choose to travel by plane. The closest airports are: the Galileo Galileiin Pisa and the Amerigo Vespucci in Florence, known alsoas “Peretola”. Both airports are 40/50 minutes far from Montecatini and are connected with the main European cities. Pisa handles most of the scheduled European flights,so it may be easier to find flights to Pisa.
From the highway A11 Firenze-Mare, take the exit Montecatini Terme: after 2 km you will reach the city centre.
We suggest to check www.trenitalia.it to organise the trip. Arriving by train please note that the city has two railway stations: Montecatini Terme-Monsummano and Montecatini Centro. Before arriving consult a map to understand where your hotel is located.
