Good first competition day
The first day of the competition of CantaRode 2019 went very well. The participating choirs are of a very high level. They have all done their best to impress the jury. Special was that the choir ‘Los Cantantes de Manila’ arrived in Kerkrade at a quarter past five in the morning and was already on stage around noon. In the meantime they also had a rehearsal. The other choirs have also shown their best side.
On Friday evening there were five very good concerts in collaboration with local choirs from the region Limburg. There were concerts in Landgraaf, Schinveld, Schimmert, Wittem and Verviers in Belgium. The choirs received very warm welcome everywhere.
The competition continues on Saturday. On Saturday evening everyone is welcome in Rolduc Abbey for the so-called “singalong”: a relaxed evening, where everyone can sing together spontaneously.
