The Summer Break Is Over – The “Stonavská Barborka” Festival Ahead


As every year, the summer break seemed too short. We all believe you have enjoyed the summer sun, taken a good rest, and taken new energy. We suppose, that one of the interesting events will be the 11th year of the Stonava festival in singing.
So, we would like to invite you to Stonava in days since November 29th till December 3rd, 2017. The 11th year of the of the International Festival in Chamber And Ensemble Singing will take place there. The final part of the 11th Competition in Music Interpretation will take place the last day of the event.

As usually, we have prepared for you several innovations and improvements:

  1. A new category to compete in – interpretation of pieces from operas and operettas. Students of secondary, higher schools, and universities can compete in this category. More information can be found in the updated Competition Rules and Organizational Guidelines.
  2. Our media and dramaturgy team put a lot of effort into several innovations, which caused several changes not only the competition programme, but also in events naming. Following you can find the most important innovations:
    The until now called “Winners Concert” was renamed to the “Prize Announcement Ceremony”; this will take place on Friday, December 1st, 2017 at 13:30.
    completely new is a documentary TV show named “Barborka 2017”. In a live broadcast it will bring current activities from The Prize Announcement Ceremony, interviews, viewers contest, etc.
    just a “cosmetic” change is a change in the name of the Sunday “Gala Concert” into “The Winners Concert”. There, this event is dedicated to the main prizes awarding, as well as guests performances.
    in the art. 13 of the Organizational Guidelines you can find all the information about the public media issues.
  3. As usually, you can apply through the electronic application form, which will be ready on our web pages since September 9th, 2017.
    The deadline to submit the application is on October 31st, 2017.
  4. The competition order drawing will take place in the Ostrava TV studio on November 11th, 2017. It will be on air on the Regional Television CZ channel, who is a partner of The Festival. We will inform you about the date of the broadcast; we will post the drawing recording on the YouTube Channel, too.
  5. Last, but not least innovation is a new look of our web.
    As usually, we will keep you informed via our e-mail “Info”, on our web page, as well as on Facebook.


Thanks for support!

New Logo of Stonavská Barborka


Since it is the 10th anniversary of The Festival this year, after thorough consideration it has been decided to create a new logo of Stonavská Barborka. We have chosen one of the designs of Ms. Barbara Kowalczyk.
