6th Dresden Choir Day

Concert of the laureates of the "Förderpreis Dresdner Laienchöre"

About the Concert

The promotion of its diverse and exemplary choral scene is of great concern to the state capital Dresden. That is why the 'Förderpreis für Dresdner Laienchöre', which was launched in 2017, has become a tradition: For the sixth time, the Kulturpalast will host the grand prize winners' concert, in which the award-winning choirs will present themselves to the audience in a varied program. This year, you can look forward not only to well-known choirs, but certainly also to new ones!
