Dubbed the Sun City, Šiauliai has since 2016 been a home of the festival and competition aimed at youth choirs and vocal ensembles. Famous for its rich history and mediaeval architecture, the city is also an attractive location for tourism.
The annual choral competition is held in two stages. First the choirs compete in their chosen categories and then the winners enter the final stage, the Grand Prix contest.
All the participating choirs earn diplomas in accordance to the sum of points assigned by the international jury. The winner of the Grand Prix earns a special prize.
The international jury consists of professional choral conductors and composers from Lithuania and beyond.
The competition and additional performances are held in the city’s best concert venues.
