Individual choirs singing for peace
This new option to participate in Costa Rica outside the festival is a great joy for us. Some choirs don’t have the chance to sing with us because the dates we have planned for the festival don’t work for them. It is for this reason that we propose the possibility of coming to the country individually to sing for peace we will have 2 dates per month enabled. We will be attentive to your requests.
Due to the great need in the choral environment to participate in face-to-face activities at an international level.
One choir per date, two dates per month. We will receive the participation of individual choirs always with an eye on our main purpose, which is the promotion of peace.
We will be receiving applications for choirs with more than 18 members who will be able to come to the country with the complete vaccination schedule (without any exceptions).
If you want to participate with your children’s choir, all of them must come vaccinated. The rule of the first to send the complete information will keep the date will be applied.

Testimonial about Choral Fest Costa Rica
Tim Sharp ACDA Director, About Choral Fest
I’m Tim Sharp executive director of the American Director Association.
My time with the International Choral Festival in Costa Rica was fantastic .
This is a well organized and high level event which requires were excellent .
Immersion between cultures was excellent chance to see Costa Rica and taste the food experience the culture .
It was excellent . I can’t wait firstly for my next trip back to Costa Rica .
I think one of the uniqueness is of the Costa Rica International Choral
Festival is the opportunities that requires get to sing for local people for each other even for themselves because they’re able to do their best .
But they’re also able to entertain lots of different types of audiences .
Whether here and I love that this is a festival it’s not a competition .
It’s a chance for everyone to show their best work without having any sense of a competitive about environment .
Everyone is just doing their best work and everyone is appreciating each other . We also learned a ton . I’ve heard songs now from all over central South America from North America . I’ve met people
from throughout the Americas on so it’s really a new cultural immersion in music which is what we want with call music .
So I look forward to coming back to Costa Rica hopefully even on an annual basis because we have such good friends here .
Now we have many directors that were trained in the United States that are here . We have Costa Rican directors that traveled throughout the United States so it’s important for me for particularly being with San Jose being just a short flight away from even the city that I live in .
It’s really important for me to keep Costa Rica in a regular rotation of visits . Choral music is so good here and we have so much to learn here that I want to hold onto it so I’m gonna continue to nurture the great relationships that we’ve established .
Digna Guerra About Choral Fest Costa Rica
Firstly, I congratulate the organizers of this
wonderful festival, it has been really wonderful…. from every point of view …. organizational of musical results. The visit of four international choirs and also an important representation of national choirs
I believe that the goal of this Costa Rica Choral Festival for Peace is very noble for the moment that humanity is bearing now with so many difficulties. I think Costa Rica being the festival from here, is giving that example of peace.
The workshop I did together with Maestro Tim Sharp from United States and the closure that was colossal!!
Well, I was there as audience and could feel that positive energy, of love and above all of peace. The concert unfolded with musical results of very high level.
I think it’s very, very important what represents the festival for the musical life of this country.
I believe that we should be aware of the work of the organization so that this festival can settle as it deserves.
It is most important for promoting peace, Promoting spirituality, humanity needs that spirituality that is being sadly lost.
I believe this is a call of attention Costa Rica and its Choral Festival for Peace is a call of attention that I recommend to all those who want to come Students who come to participate in the workshops of course of the concerts … choirs from other latitudes, Come to Costa Rica to participate and share your knowledge, your music with these choirs of the country.
I think it’s very very important to join this crusade for peace. It is surely a crusade for PEACE. I’m leaving with all possible energy. I have been filled above all with love. Because the Costa Ricans is pure love pure,
What you say «pura vida» … is really pure love. For me it is pure love. And I hope so to be invited again. We see with hope also to bring the National Choir of Cuba to participate. I believe that it is an experience that my singers have to live.
