The festival organizers of the traditional youth festival youngbohemia Prague invite children´s choirs, youth choirs and youth adult choirs to the first edition of the new choral event during the Advent season in Prague. The bright new festival combines attractions of the pre-Christmas Prague with an appeal of an international gathering of young enthusiastic singers and musicians.

youngbohemia ADVENT will be a joyful weekend bringing together young ensembles from different countries of the world for an international competition in this special time of the year. Non-competing choirs are also welcome to attend and to present themselves in public concerts in different venues in Prague.
The Bohemia capital Prague, with its unique and historical Old Town that has been declared as a UNESCO world heritage site and that looks back on a long musical heritage is predestined for a Youth Festival during the advent season.
Let your choir experience the charm of the city of a Hundred Towers in the advent season and meet new friends from all over the world who share their joy of music with you.

During the stay your group will be accommodated at a hotel in the requested category in Prague. You have the possibility to register your choir either for the competition (category A) or for the festival (non-competitive: category B)
At an evening get-together all participating choirs are invited to present themselves with a traditional song from their country.
The program also includes a half day guided city sight-seeing tour of Prague. The Festival ends with an evening closing ceremony with the awarding of the prizes and the presentation of a common song followed by a disco party.
