End of the World Choir Festival 2022 - Ushuaia - Patagonia - Argentina

End of the World
Choir Festival 2022

We are pleased to invite you to the third edition of End of the World Choir Festival “Nuevas Músicas”, which will take place both online and in person in Ushuaia May 4 through 7, 2022.

This edition will feature a 21st century repertoire, focusing on women’s role in music creation and interpretation and in its growing performance in strategic positions in the music environment.  In addition, we will try to promote the performance – both in-person and online – of new concert formats.

Throughout the 4 days groups will be able to give and share in-person concerts, take part in workshops and conferences featuring specialists who will provide both choristers and choir directors with relevant tools, promoting, at the same time, the cultural development of Argentine Patagonia.

Please note that all in-person activities will be broadcasted through our YouTube channel

together with the contents shared by the groups participating exclusively online.  

At Fundación Música del Fin del Mundo we work with passion and idealism for the End of the World Choir Festival to be an event where music and nature, as well as culture and local human warmth merge together in a unique and unforgettable experience.

Look forward to seeing you at the festival!

Sobre Tierra del Fuego

Tierra del Fuego tiene esa particular característica de territorio no explorado, guardando relación con lo místico y el ensueño del último rincón de la Argentina.

Se pueden visitar lugares inmersos en un paisaje único con bosques, estepas, playas, ríos, lagos, montañas, glaciares y el canal del Beagle.

Está compuesta por la ciudad de Río Grande al norte, Tolhuin en el corazón de la isla, la ciudad de Ushuaia al sur, cruzando la coordillera de los Andes, y la enigmática y maravillosa Antártida.

Ushuaia

Es la ciudad más austral del mundo, la única ciudad trasandina de nuestro país, la capital de la Provincia, que ofrece sus bellezas naturales e infraestructura de servicios para que aquellos quienes la conozcan no la olviden nunca jamás.

Cómo llegar

+ Acceso aereo: Cuenta con vuelos frecuentes de Aerolíneas Argentinas, FlyBondi y JetSmart, que parten desde Aeroparque y Ezeiza (Bs.As.), Córdoba, Rosario, Mar del Plata, Bahía Blanca, y otras ciudades de la Patagonia argentina.

 

+ Acceso terrestre: Tierra del Fuego, es la única provincia del país con condición insular, separada del continente por el Estrecho de Magallanes cuyas aguas pertenecen a la República de Chile.

En Río Gallegos (Prov. Santa Cruz) está el paso fronterizo para ingresar a Chile, para luego cruzar el Estrecho de Magallanes. Al arribar, aún en tierras chilenas, se continua hasta la frontera en San Sebastián, donde se ingresará nuevamente al país. Finalmente Ushuaia espera a 293 km de ese lugar.

Clima

Debido a la latitud de la Provincia el clima fueguino se caracteriza por ser frío y por tener en una misma jornada momentos de sol, lluvia, viento y nieve.

La temperatura media de verano es de 10ºC, mientras que en invierno, entre 0º C y 1º C.

Las horas de luz natural, son otras de las carcaterísticas de esta zona. En verano, se cuenta con casi 18 horas de luz, y anochece alrededor de las 22 hs. Mientras que en invierno, no llega a 6 horas de luz natural por día, y alrededor de las 17:30 hs. ya empieza a anochecer.

Atractivos turísticos

+ El Glaciar Martial es un atractivo cercano a la ciudad de Ushuaia (a sólo 7 km. del centro) ideal para un paseo de medio día, donde se puede apreciar desde sus senderos, imponentes vistas de la ciudad y el Canal Beagle.

+ El Parque Nacional Tierra del Fuego, a 12 km. de Ushuaia, único en el país que combina ambiente marino, boscoso y de montaña.

+ El Tren del Fin del Mundo que invita a revivir los últimos 7 km. del antiguo recorrido del “tren de los presos”.

+ El Canal Beagle, que une el Océano Pacífico con el Atlántico, donde parten diariamente excursiones a bordo de catamaranes para avistar lobos marinos, cormoranes, petreles, cóndores, pingüinos y visitar la Isla de los lobos, de los pájaros y Faro Les Eclaireurs.

+ Visitas a los Lagos Escondido y Fagnano
+ Visita al Ex Presidio de Ushuaia
+ Visita a la planta industrial del Grupo Newsan
+ Visita al centro de realidad virtual Experiencia Antártica
