The competition

The Béla Bartók International Choir Competition and Folklore Festival has been one of the choral events of highest standard all over the world for more than 50 years. It is, however, not only high professional quality that this competition is famous for.

Folklore shows, dance houses, culinary programmes as well as workshops all contribute to its gorgeous atmosphere. No one having visited us will ever forget Hungarian hospitality, the delicious food and wine.

Considering all this it is not surprising at all that the BBCC has been the birthplace of lots of professional relationships, close friendships, and even love throughout the years.
