The Sixth International Festival of Chamber Choirs was held between August 13th and August 20th, 2006. Two choirs from Serbia (Kragujevac, Belgrade), one from Hungary (Budapest), Bulgaria (Burgas), Albania (Shkoder) and Latvia (Riga) participated in it. Due to various unfavorable circumstances, this Festival's session was almost completely organized in Kragujevac – only one guest performance in Jagodina was realized. Such reduction in the number of concerts permitted the intensification of all standard following contents, namely, the reactivated discussions, that is to say expert talks about the concerts held on the previous day, and the atelier, where two representative works by Stevan Stojanovic Mokranjac were analyzed - the motivation for it being 150th anniversary of the composers birth, were particularly noted. The official publication of the Festival's sixth session is currently being prepared for publishing.
