Moscow’s a cappella festival gala concert – part of Moscow Seasons; Paul Johnson; A Luxury Travel Blog

Russia – Kremlin and Red Square, Moscow

As you may have already read, I was in Moscow recently for the second ‘Moscow Spring A Cappella’ festival, an event put on by the Government of Moscow as ‘Moscow Seasons’ to celebrate some of the best a cappella singers from around the world. And the grand finale for this 12-day singing extravaganza was a prestigious award ceremony held at the Ritz-Carlton, Moscow, which I was lucky enough to attend.

Inside, people were gathering over drinks, discussing performances and looking forward to the evening’s events, including a few singers I recognised from the previous day’s performances. This year’s festival saw 184 performers and groups take part from 16 countries, including the United Kingdom, Hungary, Germany, Georgia, Israel, India, Italy, Kazakhstan, China, Latvia, Portugal, Russia, the USA, Ukraine, France and South Korea.

Some were returning having taken part in last year’s event; among them were Opus Jam from France, last year’s winners of the Grand Prix. For entrants from Germany, Israel, India, China, Portugal and South Korea, it was their first time.
