The International Choral Festival “Alta Pusteria” is held every year in June in the beautiful Val Pusteria. Choirs from all over the world will gather in June 2022 for the 25th edition of this Festival to share their passion for music in beautiful concert venues located in the Val Pusteria, between Bruneck (Italy) and Sillian (Austria), facing the impressive mountains of South Tyrol. The Festival is open to all non-professional groups and offers up to 6 performances (concerts in theatres, auditoriums, churches in several small towns of the Val Pusteria as well as a performance in the open air concert in the heart of the Dolomites)

Each choir has the possibility to sing in 3 to 6 concerts. The repertoire is free, there is no set piece and all periods and musical styles are accepted.
