Following the hugely successful Choir Festivals organised by IC Productions, the International Choir Festival Berlin in October 2015 combines the pleasure of performing with educational excellence. In addition to judged performances, choirs have the opportunity to give an extra concert in town and to attend joined rehearsals focusing on common repertoire. There will be workshops for the participants and a masterclass for soloists, to which choir members are very welcome as audience. The additional value of these public masterclasses, concentrating on known repertoire, has proven to be one of the Choir Tours best appreciated features.The Berlin Festival is unique in this educational aspect, and choir members will be delighted that a large amount of time is spent on actual singing!

The festival is open to all genres mixed choirs, male choirs, female choirs, and children's choirs.
