Inspirations from the “Stonavská Barborka” Composers Competition.


We would like to welcome you to a discussion named “Inspirations from The Composers Competition”, which will take place on Friday, December 1 st , 2017, at 10:30 a.m. The main topic of it is to discuss the previous five years of the composers competition. The goal is to broaden the repertoire for the singing contest participants in all categories of The Competition. Also it gives opportunity to enhance repertoire of the chamber and ensemble singing in all school levels, for home music performance, as well as on professional level. We have invited guests, which will be some jurors as well as awarded authors from the previous years. They will definitely discuss their experience, as well as comments and remarks form previous festival years. Add to that, there will be opportunity to communicate, to inspire each other, and, motivate to compose your own works.


We will sing on Saturday, too!


We are intensively working on the programme of the Winners Concert participants. On Saturday, December 2, 2017, after meeting with the director of the Sunday concert, we will travel to Karviná. The winner ensembles will perform in two concerts. The first one, for the spa guests, will take place in the Sanatorium of the Darkov Spa, at 3:30 p.m., as The Winners Concert. The Prize Winners Concert will take place at the Fryštát Castle at 6 p.m. There, the Stonavská Barkorba Prize winners and their guests will perform there.
