ABOUT COMPETITION

The International Baltic Sea Choir Competition (IBSCC) is an annual international choral music competition that has been held since 2016 in the beautiful city of Jurmala by the Baltic sea. Participants compete in the semi-finals of both compulsory and free programs, as well as in the Grand Prix final, and their performances are evaluated by an international and professional jury. Every year a new compulsory composition is commissioned for the competition – a new work by a Latvian composer, which promotes Latvian original music on the international choral music scene.

Starting from 2024, the International Baltic Sea Choir Competition is one of the six hosts of the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing (EGP), the most prestigious event in the choral music world. Thus, the winner of the IBSCC Grand Prix will in the future have the right to participate in one of the final competitions to compete for the Grand Prix title of the European Grand Prix for Choral Singing.

The 7th International Baltic Sea Choir Competition will be held on September 20-22, 2024.
