We’ve reached our 7th year, one for each hill in Lisbon, and this year with some great news: the Festival’s Participatory Choir, consisting of 200 singers, will join the Beiras Philharmonic Orchestra to sing Beethoven’s ninth symphony. Welcome to the Summer Choral Festival!

11 choirs, more than 700 participants from seven countries (Portugal, Spain, the USA, Lithuania, Poland and Singapore) will be performing at the Centro Cultural de Belém (Main Auditorium and Pedestrian Walkway), in the cloister of the Mosteiro dos Jerónimos, at the Museu da Marinha and in Jardim Vieira Portuense. Conductor Paulo Lourenço will be responsible for the artistic direction of the Summer Choral Festival. The competition’s jury will consist of an international panel of conductors: Lim Ai Hooi (Singapore), Cara Tasher (USA), Pedro Teixeira (Portugal) and, for the first time this year, Maria Guinand (Venezuela) and Jonathan Velasco (Philippines).
