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 from May 3 to 6 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 International a cappella Contest 2023. 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.

Art’n’Voices will present themselves again in a prize-winner’s concert within the upcoming Festival for Vocal Music a cappella Leipzig. During the festival, the a cappella Contest will then take place for the 14th time (from May 8 to 11, 2024). Young vocal groups of all styles are therefore invited to apply for the next contest! All information on the application for 2024 can be found here very soon – so don’t hesitate to already tell all young vocal ensembles in your area about it!

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