The medieval choral music competition of Obanos will be brought forward to April 2023
The Fundación Misterio de Obanos opens from today until January 10 the inscriptions to participate in the competition of Medieval and Renaissance Music a cappella Arnotegui, a contest to be held in April 2023.
The Fundación Misterio de Obanos and the Hermandad de Ermitaños, organizers of the Concurso de Música Medieval y Renacentista a Cappella Arnotegui, have decided to bring forward to April -to coincide with the feast of San Guillermo in the town- this choral singing contest, which will celebrate its fourth edition in 2023.
Another novelty of the contest, which attracts choral ensembles from all over Spain, is the economic aid for mileage that the participating groups will receive. It should be recalled that the prizes for the first three winners are 1,200, 700 and 400 euros respectively, in addition to an audience award valued at 200 euros. For the next edition, a prize of 200 euros has also been established for the best director.
As on previous occasions, the participating groups must perform a compulsory work, in this case the “Stella Splendens” from the Llibre Vermell de Montserrat, and other freely chosen works, which must not exceed a total of 15 minutes of actual time.
