Programme changes of the Europa Cantat 2021: Live in Ljubljana or online
Published: May 27,2021

While the pandemic and different measures aimed at curbing the spread of infections continue to shape our lives, the festival’s diverse program has undergone several changes.

After months of hard work and efforts to construct various scenarios, we have found ourselves at a point where there are no more options, and we are obliged to make radical changes to our programme due to various risk factors.

Unfortunately, the very core of our festival, the ateliers of 4 days, 6 days, and 8 days as well as the Study Tour will have to be cancelled completely. The Slovenian authorities do not wish to increase the risk of mass infections by gathering so many people from different countries in one place and letting them sing together in large groups for several days.


We will be able to implement some other parts of the project, LIVE IN LJUBLJANA or ONLINE.

Here are few hints of the programme:

  • Concerts of invited groups and the Listen to Slovenia cycle
  • A “Day of Choirs”
  • PULSE programme, including the publishers’ Reading Sessions and educational offers of some choral organisations (VoxBazaar), ONLINE
  • A “Virtual Foyer”, offering all registered participants and everybody else connected to Europa Cantat 2021 an online platform to meet old friends, make new ones, meet conductors, organise virtual meetings, and much more; also, it is the social platform for our big Europa Cantat family.
  • An online TV programme with interviews, videos from Ljubljana, background information, a look behind the scenes, impressions from live concerts… AND MUCH MORE!

Despite the change, you are still invited to Ljubljana, the Green Capital of Europe. Take the opportunity to explore Slovenia and its beautiful treasures and iconic landmarks, all the way from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea, and enjoy great music at one of the Europa Cantat evening concerts.

Stay in touch for more programme updates.
