Spain, Lloret de Mar
June 27 — 30
June 25 — 28
June 26 — 29
International contest of music and singing “MÚSICA DEL MAR”. The program of the contest in Spain is held in Lloret de Mar and for the gala concert participants of this prestigious festival move to Tossa de Mar where they perform in a stunning castle-fortress of the 12th century Villa Vella. People still reside in this city-fortress, offering a picturesque view of the Mediterranean sea and the stunning harbor of the Costa Brava.
The international contest features a variety of musicians, including pianists, guitarists, strung, bow, and wind instrument performers, as well as orchestras, soloists, classical and jazz singers, academic and chamber choirs.
⚠️ We give our priority to learning and sharing experiences. At this contest a big attention is paid to the educational program. The event includes master classes, workshops. Teachers who have completed the master classes receive a certificate.
In this contest, an important role is assigned to the jury, consisting of world-renowned professionals in their field. They evaluate the technique, musicality, emotionality, and originality of the performances, helping to identify the most talented and deserving participants. That is why the search for sponsors to participate and support talented and promising participants is so important.
For contest participants and their companions, a special excursion program is organized. The contest is brought to life through the efforts of Fiestalonia Milenio, the town halls of Lloret de Mar and Tossa de Mar, the Culture Department of Tossa de Mar, the Department of Tourism of Lloret de Mar, the Ministry of Culture of Catalonia, the “World of Culture” association, and the Charity Fund “Fundacion SOS”.
The contest of music evokes powerful emotions and creates a holiday atmosphere, with the beauty of the music perfectly complemented by the serene sound of the sea.
Lloret de Mar is situated in the southern part of the Costa Brava, 70 kilometres to the north east of Barcelona. This is one of the Mediterraneans most popular resorts and certainly the liveliest holiday spot on this stretch of the Spanish coastline. The former fisherman’s village covers 48 square kilometres, and has five main beaches along a 7 kilometre of coastline.
The city of Barcelona and its airport El Prat can also be reached by train, with connections going further beyond. The local airport is at Girona, which is just 35 motoring minutes away. The beaches of Lloret are extremely well kept and washed by crystal clear waters. There are many areas of great interest to divers off the rocky headlands.
The main beach has a delightful promenade with scenic views and many excellent bars and restaurants. Lloret has excellent tourist infrastructure, with sports facilities, shopping, leisure and restaurants available for tourists. The safe, sandy beaches, which bask in warm temperatures during the summer months, pull in beach lovers, plus Europe’s biggest water park, zoo and the Universal Studios Port Aventura theme park are all within easy reach.
