The essential french government measures dictated by the unfortunate spread of coronavirus led us, greatly disappointed but without hesitation, to cancel the 2020 festival.
We thank the seven choirs that had registered and who should have made it an excellent vintage. We hope to find them again in 2021. You can always find their presentation below.
This 2021 festival will still be held in Aumetz (Moselle, France) and surrounding areas
April 23, 24 and 25, 2021.
This should have been our tenth festival, an opportunity for a special reunion. Unfortunately, it will be only the ninth and we are postponing our special operation to 2022.
Registrations are now open for 2021.
The whole team is already ready to welcome you as friendly as possible.
We are at your disposal, do not hesitate to contact us for any information.
Amici della Montagna
"Through its commitment, its faith in what it sings, the AMICI della Montagna choir has been able to create its own style. We have been for many years forging compositions by Bepi de Marzi, our great friend. We evoke faith, the hope of the poor, respect for memory, the suffering of nature and the joy of living."
Singing in a choir means sharing difficulty and passions. It means coming together with others, reconciling different voices, giving time, build friendships. All this is not easy, yet the Amici della Montagna Choir has been following this path for forty years.
This choir was born in Origgio in 1979 from the approach of friends who created an opportunity to meet and study with the aim of cultivating a common and great passion for singing. Many years have passed since the founding of the choir : years of work, sacrifice, satisfaction, recognition, and many concerts.
PEVSKA SKUPINA STUDENEC
The group was founded in 2002. Started as a duo, he gradually became a nonet. It is composed of experienced singers, who appreciate the harmony of their singing touches the hearts of the people who listen to it. The band has no competitive ambition, which nevertheless does not prevent them from doing everything to sing in high quality. While they perform songs of different origins, they prefer popular songs.
They have sung in many Slovenian cities and European countries. The band took the name of an ancient source of Pivka that withered for years and which, thanks to the singers and the local community, regained a neat image. Leader: Irena Rep.
Vaški pevci iz Šentruperta
Our group is part of the cultural society Mavrica Šentrupert. We've been singing together for 15 years. The group consists of nine singers. Through our weekly rehearsals, we try to bring popular songs to the public with the best possible quality, especially for young people, so that these songs also know future generations.
Our concerts take place in our home community and in various places in Slovenia where singing friends invite us. It is a great honour for us to be able to participate in the Aumetz festival, where we will also be able to present to the French public a part of the Slovenian singing culture.
Louth Hospital Choir
The Louth Hospital Choir was formed almost 3 years ago when staff from the 2 hospitals in our county or region came together to sing for fun and pleasure. Nurses, doctors, administrative staff, nursing assistants, physiotherapists... all work together in the choir to make music that lifts and calms the spirits.
The choir has performed at festivals, concerts, memorial services and parties. This is their first trip abroad and they are very happy to participate in this festival.
The music director is Irene Barr, a nurse at Dundalk Hospital who has worked in music education for 20 years.
Vox Femina, a vocal ensemble with equal voice, was born in 2012. The members of the group, long-time singers, all live in or near Metz. Accompanied by the piano by Claire Schaff, accompanying pianist, and carried by a desire of quality in the interpretation, the respect of the style, the correctness, the homogeneity of the voices, the singers enjoy interpreting pieces of eras and origins and share their emotions with their audiences, as indicated by their logo: "voices of women, ways of the heart".
Equinoxe, born in 1996, is a group of 28 singers. His varied repertoire scans the high standards of pop and variety. Famous artists, well-known songs and lesser-known songs, musicals and movie tunes.
He performs for one-off concerts or at local and national festivals, which has already allowed him to sing with many renowned artists (Cabrel, Souchon, Aznavour, Voulzy, Mitchell, Chédid...), to participate in variety shows and even to record with greats of song and blues (album "Chansons pour les pieds" by J.J. Goldman in 2001, album "Prises et reprises" by Michael Jones in 2004).
Les Voix de l'Est
The men's choir "Les Voix de l'Est" was founded in 2014 in the Association "Mines en choeurs".
He interprets world songs, traditional and popular, in Slovenian, Croatian, Dalmatian, Russian, Italian, Sardinian, Sicilian, English, Gaelic, Basque, Cajun & French (a little bit).
He gives a dozen concerts a year, in Lorraine, of course, but also elsewhere in France (Burgundy, Vienna, Cantal, North, Basque country) and in Europe (Ireland, Scotland, Slovenia, Croatia, Italy, Luxembourg, Belgium, Switzerland).
