Every other summer Tampere celebrates the diversity of the human voice at the festival of choral and ensemble singing. Since 1975 in the international atmosphere of the festival, old and new music, choir tradition and for instance beatboxing all coexist in harmony. The festival culminates in the finales of the Chorus Review and the Contest for Vocal Ensembles, where the atmosphere is palpable. In addition, workshops and free concerts draw audience interested in vocal music from around the world.
