About in terra pax
The goal of the international choir “in terra pax” (“peace on earth”) is to support the exchange between people, cultures and ideas.
The choir is formed anew every year. It consists of 60 international singers who meet at the Polish town of Międzyzdroje at the Baltic Sea. In the course of one week, a challenging a capella program is assembled together with internationally renowned conductors. The prepared program is then presented in our own concerts and at the International Festival of Choral Song in Międzyzdroje.
“in terra pax” offers young students of music as well as ambitiuous amateurs an opportunity to sing together and build bridges between the different cultures and share experiences.
The rehearsal week
Our intense rehearsal week takes place in the Polish town of Miedyzydroje at the Baltic Seaclose to the Polish-German border. Several internationally renowned conductors work with the choir to assemble a challenging and entertaining a capella program. Our repertoire of previous years can be found in the program archive.
