Come shine with us and participate in an unforgettable week-long rendezvous of youth choirs and musical ensembles in Veszprém, Hungary – the 2023 European Capital of Culture.
‘You can become a music connoisseur… only through active musical activity, listening to music alone is not enough’. – Zoltán Kodály
- Dates: 27-31 May 2023
- Location: Veszprém and the Balaton-Bakony region
- Participants: open to youth choirs and music ensembles ages 12-25 from all over Europe
- Programme structure: each participating group will give at least 2 concerts at different venues
Our first and most important task is to make music accessible to everyone. We recognise that it is particularly important to create opportunities for active youth ensembles and choirs to meet and perform. What better opportunity could there be to inspire and encourage these talented young musicians from across the continent than a European youth music festival in the European Capital of Culture – in the land of Kodály and Bartók, in the city of Auer, and in a UNESCO City of Music?
MusiColours not only refers to the different styles of music, but also the diverse range of participants from different countries. We believe that the essence of music, however diverse, is that it brings us together and is understandable by all.
‘In a stormy world, nothing can teach more to the youth than music and arts. It is an extraordinary language that helps you understand and be understood, accept and be accepted. This way musicians seem to be playing in the same orchestra. This makes the biggest ensemble of humankind’. – Csilla Gál, Deputy Director of the Csermák Antal Music School in Veszprém
