10.30 am - 12.30 pm: "Rainbow Choir" workshop: 

Gelukkig team poseren

Nothing more fun than learning or improving the Flemish language through cool simple Flemish songs. Together with RIMO and the Rainbow Choir, we will work out a course from March 2024 with a fun final session during the festival. The workshop will be led by Jonas Van Esch.

Jonas plays accordion and sings songs that everyone knows and can sing along to. With his years of experience in all possible contexts, he knows how to adapt his repertoire to any situation without any problem.

Do not expect an accordionist sitting in a corner playing, but an enthusiastic musician who plays among (and with) the audience, providing recognisable songs & melodies, humour and entertainment. There's nothing more fun than singing together, you'll soon notice. And if you want to do a dance, that's definitely part of the possibilities too.

13:30 - 17:00: competition


6 selected choirs with equal or mixed voices will sing a 25-minute competition programme including a compulsory work specially composed for IKV-Genk by Flemish composer Kurt Bikkembergs.



5 pm - 7 pm: pop choir workshop - Rise Up

Karin Lauwers, founder and leader of the pop choir Rise Up takes us into the world of pop choirs and especially show choirs.



20:00 - 22:00: Fraternity concert


The participating competition choirs each perform a varied programme, sometimes including music from their own country. Entertainment in which the audience actively participates together make for a fun and enthusiastic fraternal concert.
Tickets: € 20
