Mundus Cantat 15th edition: the world is singing. Several hundred singers from all over the world will travel to Sopot this May to take part in this annual festival, in the hopes of delighting audiences and moving more sensitive listeners to tears. The choirs will compete for the Sopot Seagull, which unfortunately doesn't sound nearly as glamorous in English. Various workshops, auditions, galas and concerts take place around Sopot over the 4 days. The festival's programme will consist of two parts: the 1st part – the choirs will embark on a journey around the globe to present pieces performed during various tournées: songs by Ramon Noble, Lucho Bermúdez, Alberto Carbonell Jimeno, Richards Dubra and Polish composers: Jerzy Wasowski/Jeremi Przybora, Marek Raczyński, Andrzej Bielerzewski and Marcin Wawruk. The 2nd part - film music, dedicated to Krzysztof „Komeda” Trzciński, 50 years after his passing, will be performed by Mundus Cantat Choir conducted by Beata Wróblewska, and Juan Felipe Alvarado – sax, Cezary Paciorek – piano, accordion, Adam Żuchowski – double bass. The special treat for the Sopot audience will be the performance of the King's Singers' former tenor, Paul Phoenix, which will take place on the 22nd of May at the St. George's Church. The festival's final concert will include folk dance suites from various regions of Poland, and the best songs presented during the contest, selected by the jury.
