Poznań Boys’ Choir in the US

Poznań Boys’ Choir has received an invitation to participate in two of the largest choral festivals in the western United States – the Idaho International Choral Festival and the Montana International Choral Festival.

The Idaho International Choral Festival has been held every three years in the city of Pocatello in the United States of America since 1999. The 2023 edition will feature 8 choirs from around the world, representing 5 continents. The Poznań Boys’ Choir is one of two ensembles from Europe and the only ensemble from Poland. The choir has already visited Idaho in 2016, and participation in the festival in the coming year will make the ensemble count among the small group of choirs that have performed at more than one edition.

The Missoula International Choral Festival was the first event of its kind in the United States. The event has been held since 1987. Every three years, selected world-class choirs are invited from around the world to the city of Missoula, Montana, to participate in public concerts and inclusive community activities. The festival enjoys great prestige around the world for its attention to performance quality during concerts and its support of the musical cultural traditions of different corners of the world. As at the Idaho festival, the Poznań Boys’ Choir will be the only ensemble representing Poland at the Montana event! In addition to the Poznań Boys’ Choir, 10 other ensembles from the USA, Uganda, Taiwan, Spain, Lithuania, Germany, Estonia, Georgia and Costa Rica will also participate in the festival.
