Ναύπλιο Artiva Διεθνές Χορωδιακό Φεστιβάλ, Nafplio Artiva International Choral Festival

The "Nafplio - Artiva 9th International Choral Festival" takes place for yet another year, in the historic building of the Old Parliament ("Vouleftiko") in Nafplio, from November 9th to November 12th 2023. The event is organized by the Municipality of Nafplion and ARTIVA Cultural Management & Advertising, under the artistic direction of Maestro Theodossis Antoniades.

The organizational and artistic level of the Festival is very high, and in combination with the charm and beauty of Nafplio, the "Nafplio - Artiva International Choral Festival" is ranked among the best in Greece. It has a competitive character while maintaining the free participation of choirs, as it has been in previous years. It represents the largest participation of artistic choral groups in a cultural event, with references at both national and international levels.
The artistic value of the Festival is very significant, as the participating choruses have notable distinctions to showcase in their resumes, both within and beyond borders. It is a great opportunity for music enthusiasts -even the most demanding listeners- to closely witness this major cultural event. The festival is graced by the presence of renowned conductors and personalities from the field of music, while distinguished figures in choral art adorn the judging panel of the Competitive Festival.
