Join the Varna International Music Academy for a musical experience of a lifetime in the coastal city of Varna, Bulgaria. The Varna International Choral Festival “Prof. Marin Chonev” brings together choirs from around the world for educational and concert programs in what promises to be an exhilarating celebration of choral music along the beautiful shores of the Black Sea.
We are inviting choral directors, choral singers, and conducting students to join the Festival, which will feature a series of concerts and choral conducting sessions, led by internationally-recognized clinicians. Our distinguished faculty will present masterclasses, training conducting sessions, and lectures on a wide range of international choral literature featuring masterpieces from different historical periods, styles, and nations, for mixed, homogeneous, children and folklore choirs.
Choral directors who bring their choirs will have the opportunity to have their own public performance in Varna. During the last evening of the Festival, participating conductors will conduct a portion of the Festival choral repertoire in a public performance. Join us and take advantage of all that the Festival has to offer to you, your singers, and your conducting students!
