The First Festival of Chamber Choirs in Kragujevac was held from 23 to 30 August 1995. The organizer was the City Assembly of Kragujevac and the Festival was held under the patronage of Ministry of Culture of Republic of Serbia and the City Assembly of Kragujevac.

Opening ceremony

Since the decision of the holding the Festival was made extremely late (in April 1995), its concept was reduced to the important program activities which could be realized – it was a specific survey of the existing different activities and interests of chamber choirs (therefore it was held under the metaphoric title Spectrum). The profile of the future festivals was based on the results and experiences of the First Festival. It is important to say that the main program goal of the Festival was realized in spite of the reductions – they were limited to the accompanying events.   

The results of the First Festival of Chamber Choirs in Kragujevac can be completely seen in the Memoir of the Festival, published after the Festival was officially closed and titled The First Festival of Chamber Choirs – the Memoir.
