SAN JUAN CANTA, International Choir Competition, Grand Prix and Festival is a renewed choral proposal from San Juan, Argentina, based on the international trajectory displayed in the organization of nine editions of "San Juan Coral”, four editions of "Ansilta, National Choral Competition and Festival”, four editions of “Canto en Sol", international festival for children and youth choirs and the first release of San Juan Canta in August 2016.

Sponsored by the Government of San Juan, San Juan Canta is an important opportunity to artistic and cultural exchange that is offered from San Juan, the great Argentinian choral pole, internationally recognized for its excellence.

Our goals:

  • to sing together in a major international event, promoting the interpretation and propagation of the universal choral repertoire,
  • to strengthen the choral activity in San Juan, Argentina, connecting and analyzing among the participants the universal choral repertoire, interpretative styles and qualities of the countries represented,
  • to provide the opportunity to learn and improve by participating in workshops, conferences and seminars in charge of outstanding professionals,
  • to share in San Juan the choral music of all times, as well as to enhance the love for choral singing.

Being the beautiful
Auditorio Juan Victoria the headquarters of the auditions and concerts, we make an international call to amateur choirs in all categories to show their artistry by choosing any of the three modes: Competition, Grand Prix and Festival.

San Juan Canta will be supervised by the President of the Artistic Committee, Prof. Maria Elina Mayorga, in cooperation with the President of the International Jury, Dr. T. J. Harper (Boston, U.S.) and a prestigious group of world recognized jurors. Important awards are offered.
