WCF Congress 2017 Barcelona

We are pleased to invite you to the 2017 World Carillon Congress, organized by the Confraria de Campaners i Carillonistes de Catalunya with the support of the Catalan government.

From December 15, 2016 we will open our congresswebsite http://www.carilloncongress2017.com where you will be able to register online. However, don't wait to make your travel plans! Flights to Barcelona and hotels in Barcelona are expensive when you book only some months in advance. There will be no congress hotels, but you can easily find all the options on the internet. There is also the possibility to share the costs by renting an apartment with a small group. Check the bookingsite of your choice. For your convenience, it is recommended to find lodging near or in the Gothic Quarter.

The World Carillon Congress 2017 runs from July 1 in the morning to July 5 in the evening. Afterwards you can combine some more culture, carillon, swinging bells and tourism during the Post-Congress from July 6 till July 8 in the afternoon, with i.a. visit to the impressive Roman city of Tarragona. During this entire period (July 1 till July 8) you can stay in the same hotel or apartment in Barcelona. Every day, we provide transport by bus for the whole group.

For your information, there will be a Pre-Congress from June 23 till June 28 in Portugal, organized by CICO and the Municipality of Constância (cico.constancia@gmail.com) and a Carillon Day in Perpignan, France, on July 9, organized by Elizabeth Vitu and Laurent Pie (jpvitu@wanadoo.fr)

INVITATION FOR CONCERTS WITH CARILLON PLUS

Like every Carillon Congress, each Carillon Association may present a concert (carillon solo). We will ask you later which carillonneur will be your official representative.

In addition to these concerts, and in addition to all special concerts that are already organized by our committee, we invite each association to propose an exceptional concert Carillon PLUS. All costs for this concert (musicians fees, travel expenses, etc.) are for the account of the local association. We provide the carillon (in F1 or in C2) and the technical equipment.

If your association want to take this opportunity, please send us your proposal, with youtube example or others, before November 29 by email to: amreverte@gencat.cat

Submitted contributions are subject to a selection. The decisions will be communicated to the candidates before December 15.

We are very excited to be your host, and we are looking forward to welcome you in Barcelona!
