EVALUATION OF THE RECORDINGS

A renowned international jury will evaluate your performance and give a professional non-grading evaluation. You will receive an extensive well-founded report.

            JUDGING RUBRICS:

TECHNICAL ELEMENTS:

  • Pitch
  • Rhythm

MUSICAL ELEMENTS:

  • Tone Quality
  • Diction
  • Interpretation and Presentation

Each member of the jury will assign a single rating to each choir on a scale of 0-100. A performance worthy of a 100 would meet and exceed all of the standards listed above in a truly exceptional manner. Variations thereof would result in proportionally lower scores. It is highly possible for a very fine performance to receive a rating of lower than 100. A 100 rating would be a transcendent performance. These are rare.

GDPR DISCLAIMER: We handle all data following the GDPR-legislation. Pictures, audio, and video recordings made during the Festival as well as all personal data will be kept by the company and used for practical and non-commercial purposes only. They will only be shared with others if necessary for the organization of the Festival. The videos submitted to the online festival 2021 will be broadcasted and featured on our social media.
