Fulminant choral spectacle
Imagine countless young people, identifiable as a group by same-colored clothes, and mingling with other-colored groups in the next moment. There are carpets in turquoise and pink on the floor, and giant magenta balloons floating in the hall. A moment later, everyone is singing a song together. All from 1,000 throats and 13 countries. The applause rushes over their heads, from the audience of all ages. This is the festival opening of the 13th EJCF!
Eighteen highly qualified children’s and youth choirs from thirteen European countries and the Philippines will open the 13th European Youth Choir Festival Basel together. They will be welcomed musically by nine high school choirs of the region and the audience.
More than 1000 singers present their vocal talent, performing the live score of the animated film “Circuit” and getting themselves and the audience in the right mood for the upcoming festival days.

13th European Youth Choir Festival Basel (EJCF)
The European Youth Choir Festival Basel (EJCF) was founded in 1992. It is one of the most important conventions for outstanding children’s and youth choirs worldwide. In the EJCF FESTIVAL 19 selected choirs with about 800 singers aged 10 – 25 years from eleven European countries, one non-European country and from all regions of Switzerland will perform. In the EJCF ATELIER program, about 1,900 children and young people from Switzerland will meet to sing together. The 17 concerts on sale and the 40 events with or without donations also include open singing sessions, church services, the choir ship for musical interaction with the invited choirs from abroad, open-air concerts and other big events such as group singing with body percussion on the Münsterplatz. In addition to the high musical quality, the festival also stands for the idea of connecting people across all borders. All invited choirs are accommodated in host families in the Basel region. Over 800 volunteers will help to make the singing festival, which will last several days, a success.
