World Choir Games Tours, Belgium, July 2020

A music travel experience NOT to be missed!

The World Choir Games is known as “The Choral Olympics”  because it resounds with the message of peace, unity and goodwill through music, with opening and closing ceremonies rival those of the Olympic Games.

At the 2018 World Choir Games in South Africa 15,000 singers from 51 nations gathered.  In 2016 there were 13,000 in Russia, and in 2014 it was 28,000 in Latvia!

Imagine your choir joining so many people singing every imaginable kind of music.  There are categories at all levels, for choirs of every kind, and every musical styles and genre has a place in this wonderful event.

Competitions are held on two levels. The Open Competition is for all comers. The Champions Competition requires participants to have achieved outstanding results in previous international choral events. For choirs new to international competition there are qualification  performances before the competitions begin. This provides an evaluation from members of the international jury which points you to the most appropriate level of competition.

You can attend for the first or second week of the World Choir Games and this is what’s on offer:

  • Opening and Closing Ceremonies
  • Qualification Concert
  • Competitions in your chosen categories
  • Friendship Concerts with other choirs
  • Stage rehearsals
  • Workshops, coaching and seminars
  • Awards Ceremonies
  • Parade of Nations
  • Entry to all Festival Concerts
  • Public transport pass for the duration of your stay
  • Official Program Book, Jurors’ Evaluation Sheets and Qualification Certificate (for future events)

 

The World Choir Games is not only the world’s biggest music event, it is also the best organised, so you will have detailed schedules and total on-site assistance for the duration of your stay.
