The Catalan metropolis of Barcelona belongs to the premier league of European cities and combines history and tradition with modernity in a harmonious way. The 2000 years of history led the city into a cultural and economic centre of the entire Mediterranean region; his worldwide fame reached Barcelona by hosting the Olympic Games in 1992. The variety of cost flights to Barcelona and Girona make the journey easy.

Performances of the choirs are a matinee concert over the rooftops of Barcelona, a very special experience. Friendship concerts take place in the lively centre of the city in various concert halls or churches. A special experience is the common concert of all participating choirs: Each choir presents himself with a song of their choice in the Crypt of the Sagrada Familia, the landmark of the city and next to the tomb of the brilliant Catalan architect Antoni Gaudi. In memory of Gaudi, the choir directors put down put flowers at his tomb before the common final song. This is followed by a dinner with music and singing with Catalan gastronomy and hospitality.

Sightseeing in Barcelona round off your stay within late-summer temperatures. Optionally, the accommodation takes place in the centre of Barcelona or in cost-favourable hotel on the Costa Barcelona; all hotels are classified in the 4-star category.
