The stage design for Eurovision Choir 2019 in Gothenburg, Sweden has been revealed by the EBU, with just over a week to go until the contest.
The stage that the ten competing choirs in Eurovision Choir 2019 will perform on has been revealed. The stage features a ‘massed choir’ formed of 300 choral singers who will be involved in the group performances during the show.
The stage has a number of LED panels which will be used to display graphics as part of each of the competing choirs performances. On the right hand side of the stage are Bohuslan Big Band, as well as the presenters positions for the show.
A catwalk extends out the front of the stage into the audience and out to the judging panel. Choirs can use two risers built into the stage and the stage space for their performance. The conductors podium is raised off the main stage.
