Each year in June, the International Choral Festival in Tuscany, Italy attracts choirs from as far off as South Africa and Asia. The festival is set in the picturesque Tuscan spa town of Montecatini Terme, nestled between the rolling hills of Pistoia. The festivities begin on Thursday night as choirs form a procession and walk to the Torretto Spa for the Opening Ceremony. Guests enjoy a traditional Tuscan Flag Throwing Ceremony and performances by local choirs.
Choirs perform three concerts while participating in the festival; first at the Tettuccio Spa, then in the town’s main plaza, Piazza del Popolo, for a large local audience, and finally for a church congregation on Sunday morning. Between performances, choirs may visit the nearby towns of Florence, Pisa, or Lucca. Additional trips can be arranged for your choir to cities such as Siena or San Gimignano.
The Festival’s closing ceremony takes place at the stunning Villa Medici, founded by Ferdinando I de’ Medici, Grand Duke of Tuscany. Guests enjoy a traditional four course Tuscan dinner. The evening culminates with a group sing under the stars in the Villa’s gardens. Enjoy singing with a diverse selection of choirs in a beautiful Tuscan setting!
