The creativity of choirs worldwide in dealing with the contact bans due to the current Corona pandemic currently has no limits: New technologies are being explored, new ideas for online rehearsals are implemented and even innovative online concerts have already taken place.


INTERKULTUR wants to encourage this new choral creativity, give singers a worldwide platform to perform and present their skills:


The INTERKULTUR Video Award is INTERKULTUR’s first online choir competition and call amateur choirs from all over the world to participate.


Until June 30, 2020 choirs can hand in a yet unpublished virtual choir video with a song of their choice, which will be presented on INTERKULTUR.TV on July 6 (Choirs A Cappella) and July 12 (Choirs with Accompaniment).


The Award will be given in the categories “Choirs a cappella” and “Choirs with accompaniment” and the winners will be published on July 15, 2020. An additional Special Prize will be awarded for the best interpretation of the INTERKULTUR motto “Singing together brings nations together.“
