A Cappella Contest Date


Dear a cappella fans,

From April 27th to 30th, 2022, the International a cappella Contest Leipzig will enter the 13th round! Young vocal ensembles can win the Leipzig a cappella Award, receiving prize money totaling 4,500 Euros and enjoying extensive educational opportunities. The winning ensemble can look forward to their own concert at the a cappella Festival Leipzig 2023.

The contest is aimed at committed and high-quality young vocal groups worldwide. All groups compete in a common category and can perform their competition entries with or without amplification – this can also vary for the individual pieces. Vocal groups with three to eight members are eligible to participate. The average age of the ensemble must not be more than 29 at the end of the application period. Instrumental accompaniment is not permitted. At least half of the repertoire to be performed should correspond to the number of voices in the ensemble (“one-to-a-part”). Previous contestants may reapply (excluding AWARD winners).

Please note that the ensembles that have already been admitted in 2020 and 2021 will compete in the upcoming competition.

If you are interested in the competition and would like to take part yourself, then do not hesitate to write to us at We will then be happy to send you all further information.
