In the evening there are concerts in the region and a big music festival. On the final day there are workshops and a final concert with announcements from the prize winners.

During the festival of 2018 there was a shared first prize for the young ladies’ choir Amaranthe from Oudenaarde in Belgium and the choir of the Maritime University of Szczecin in Poland.
