 Welcome to Lund Choral Festival!

Lund  Choral Festival is one of Lund´s major cultural events. The biennial was initiated in 2006, as a part of the ambition to become the European Capital of Culture in 2014. All the festivals have been great successes and generated over 14 000 visitors. The number of participants for all three festivals reaches 7 500. The concept involves top international ensembles as well as manifestations of the local chorus life.

The concert experience is central to the Lund Choral Festival. The festival therefore offers a unique occasion for the audience to listen to the best of the best of choral singing today. Parallel with the local choirs from Lund – most of them are impressively awarded – international and national top ensembles and choirs are performing on many different stages in Lund with almost 30 concerts during the festival week. Two stadium galas are included (the Gala Concert for the adults and SjungGung for the youth) with over one thousand singers participating together with guest stars from the Swedish elite of singing and acting. This makes up Lund  Choral Festival.
