Dear a cappella audience,

The summer break for the Leipzig vocal ensemble amarcord and the team at the a cappella festival is over – now it’s back to celebrating singing in the a cappella stronghold of Leipzig with vigour.

Preparations for the next edition of the festival are in full swing: from April 28th to May 6th, 2023, the festival will celebrate its 23rd edition a cappella. Make a note of this appointment now!

Invited are vocal groups from Taiwan, Albania, Finland, Germany and Great Britain as well as international formations from vocal jazz to early music. Advance sales for a cappella 23 will start on December 1, 2022.

Of course, we are also looking forward to the resumption of our young talent competition with great anticipation: From May 3rd to 6th, 2023, the Leipzig International A Cappella Competition will be held for the 13th time. Incidentally, you can still apply for the competition at any time – so be sure to tell young vocal ensembles that we expect and want to welcome them in Leipzig! All information about the application, which is possible until January 9, 2023, can be found on the competition homepage.
