The International Choir Competition has been a highlight of the Spital Cultural Summer for decades. The 58th edition, which will be held from July 5 to 7, has eight Singers from eight countries around the world for a musical journey around the world in the middle of Spital. Singers compete against each other in the “Art Song” and “Folk Song” categories.
