The jury concerts are the core of every Festival. Each participating group brings its own program for a renowned international jury. This jury guarantees a reliable and constructive evaluation of the musical performance of the participants. The repertoire and the duration of the programme depends on the vocal or instrumental category in which the group performs.
During the 69nd online edition of the EMJ, participating groups will still be able to perform a jury concert. The groups are asked to send in a pre-recorded execution of their repertoire. Choirs that are looking for a challenge have the possibility to study an extra song and enter in a second category. This song has been written as part of the European WeBEUnited project and is planned to be performed in multiple European countries. An internationally renowned jury will evaluate the performance and write a constructive report which can inspire future performances. The groups will be able to discuss this report during a one-to-one session with a jury member. The jury will not give marks or award prices this edition.
All details and programmes are available in the digital programme booklet.
