In Lyon, France, 13-20 July, 2017
8th Europa Cantat Junior Festival
A Festival with a focus on children’s choirs and youth choirs, with singers under 18, offering workshops, concerts, Open Singing and non-choral activities with a schedule adapted to this age group.
Since the success of Europa Cantat Junior 3 in Namur, Belgium in 2002, lots of children’s and girls’ choirs asking to participate in ECA-EC festivals and singing weeks and conviced us that we need to continue with this idea. That is why Europa Cantat Junior is organised every three years, in different european cities : Vic, Spain (2005), Nevers, France (2008), Pärnu, Estonia (2011) and Bergen, Norway (2014).
We are waiting for you !
Lyon, a choir city
Lyon is a city where culture rimes with good food! A city where two rivers join at the door to Southern France. A city looking towards its future but rich of its past with its Roman theatre and the «Vieux-Lyon» Renaissance quarters. A city where modern architecture mingles with historical buildings.
Its heraldic animal, the lion, is the sign of an enormous force bursting with thousands of new initiatives.
