The International Choral Competition “City of Rimini” will take place from 6th to 9th October 2011. This Choirs Contest does not want only to put the Groups in competition but it intends to present to the audience the characteristics and the diversities of every choir and repertoire in the beautiful setting of this ancient Roman city, well-known both for the beauty of his beaches and for the remains of a gorgeous past.
