International festival for youth choirs and orchestras
Dear young musician,
It is our pleasure to extend this invitation to the International Musical Youth Festival I., July 10-13 2014 in the city of Bratislava, capital of the Slovak Republic. We invite musically inclined youth from around the world to contribute their talents in the following categories: children and youth orchestras, vocal ensembles, traditional music, folk music, brass and string orchestras, or a combination of both vocal and instrumental choirs. The groups may participate in a competitive or non-competitive setting. During the duration of the festival, students will at once benefit from, and at the same time contribute to the rich cultural atmosphere of the city. Bratislava is widely recognized as a city of music, in addition to its fame as a city of rich cultural and artistic heritage. Each choir will have ample opportunities to perform in concert halls, beautifully ornate churches, and outdoor settings in the historical center of the city, all boasting exceptional acoustics.
In addition to these musical performances, each group will be treated to recreational and sightseeing points of interest in the surrounding area. We offer guided tours of the famous Redstone Castle , a boat tour to Devin Castle, a tour of the historical town of Trnava , and a nearby state of the art aqua park, in the town of Senec .
The goal of this summer festival is simply to bring together talented young musicians from around the world in an effort that will prove mutually beneficial to all. This unique musical and cultural experience is sure to inspire musicians as they perform and learn together in Bratislava – the city of dreams.
