Dear conductors, singers and choir music lovers,

This year was special for all of us. The pandemic presented us with an enormous challenge – we had to adapt to the changing reality as quickly as possible. But at the same time, it was a time when caring for each other was more important than ever. Despite all our efforts to return to our life as before the outbreak, our multinational family is not yet ready to gather together in Sopot this year.

However we would like to recognize and celebrate how you practice music, develop repertoire and improve continuously like we always do, together. We invite you to be part of the 17th edition of the Choir Festival Mundus Cantat 2021, which will take place on September 24th-26th 2021 in a special hybrid format.

The competition part of the festival will take place in two ways – choirs from Pomeranian Voivodeship will be invited for Auditions to the Church of Gwiazda Morza following normal rules with minor changes, choirs from other parts of Poland and from abroad are invited to take part in virtual Auditions according to rules explained in Rules (In the enlosure).

We strongly believe that we are able to overcome these new circumstances, face our prestigious jury and experience the joy of making music together yet another time!
