About the Concert

Tickets for this event will be available from 12.06.2024 from 10 am.

It's already a nice tradition: once a year, the state capital announces the "Dresden Amateur Choir Award". The winners then present themselves at the award ceremony in the Kulturpalast. This is another opportunity to marvel at the diversity, skill and passion with which people sing in Dresden!
