ProgrammeSince the First Festival was very successful, the City Assembly of Kragujevac proposed that the Festival should be held every year, although it was supposed to be held every second year (in the uneven years, in accordance with the Yugoslav Choral Ceremonies in Nis). Therefore the Second Festival of Chamber Choirs in Kragujevac was held already in the following year, from18 to 25 August. For the firsttime the Festival was of an international character (the choirs from Macedonia, Poland, Romania and Yugoslavia took part in it, as well as a folklore singing group from Ukrain) and the whole program concept was realized.

The results of the Second Festival were presented in the Memoir of this Festival (printed as II International Festival of Chamber Choirs in Kragujevac).
