Festival 500 Sharing the Voices


FESTIVAL 500 Sharing the Voices is a biennial international celebration of choral music that takes place in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Canada. This non-competitive festival features choirs from many countries and sets its stage for high quality performance and sharing. Preceding the festival, The Phenomenon of Singing International Symposium takes place June 28 to July 1, 2007 in partnership with Festival 500 and Memorial University of Newfoundland, engaging the academic interest of scholars around the world.

FESTIVAL 500 traditionally shines a light on the music of a particular culture and features it in a special way. In 2007 FESTIVAL 500 gives focus to the celebration of Celtic music. This special tradition is shared in each World of Music concert, and brought to life by various clinicians, conductors and performers.

FESTIVAL 500 Sharing the Voices is a non-profit organization that is governed by a Board of Directors.
