The World Choir Games, the largest choral music competition in the world, takes place every two years. The 7th World Choir Games will be held in Cincinnati, Ohio, from July 4-14, 2012. This is the first time the event will have been held in North America. More than 20,000 participants, including as many as 400 choirs, from more than 70 countries will compete in 23 categories of choral music. Inspired by the Olympic ideal, the goal of the World Choir Games is to unite people from all nations through singing in peaceful competition.
An important feature of the World Choir Games are “Friendship Concerts” provided by many of the participating choirs. These concerts create opportunities for the Cincinnati Organizing Committee to enable people from throughout the community to experience the Games for no cost.
Join us at the Cincinnati Art Museum on Thursday, July 5, 2012 to hear choral performances by:
Gifu Mukunoki (Japan)
The Rocky Harmonists (Germany)
Summit Sounds (Cincinnati, OH)
