Dear a cappella fans,

after a forced break of three years, the International a cappella Contest Leipzig has finally been able to offer a stage to talented young vocal groups again in 2023. Ultimately, six ensembles made their way to Leipzig and showed a lot of potential and diversity.
The contest jury, headed by Simon Carrington, awarded the vocal group Art’n‘Voices from Gdansk/Poland the 1st prize and the “Leipzig a cappella Award” of the 13. International a cappella Contest. They will present themselves again in a prize-winner’s concert within the upcoming Festival for Vocal Music a cappella Leipzig. The 2nd prize was given to Vocoder from Hamburg/Germany, who also received the Audience Award, and the five-piece Lylac from Mainz/Germany made the 3rd place.

Now it is time for a new contest and new, hungry vocal groups from all over the globe to come to Leipzig to take part in the competition! The 14. International a cappella Contest Leipzig will take place from May 8 to 11, 2024. Young vocal groups of all styles are therefore invited to apply for the upcoming contest now! Application is possible from December 1 until February 1, 2024 – please find all necessary information by clicking on “Apply now”. The contest offers not only a total prize money of 7.000 €, but first and foremost an intense education programme and thus important and helpful feedback, creative input and experiences to support young vocal groups with a lasting effect. So don’t hesitate, spread the word – and apply now!

We’re already looking so much forward to next May!

Yours, amarcord
