Participation Opportunities

This event invites all non-professional choirs of the world to participate, offering fair and realistic competition to experienced competitive choirs as well as to choirs with relatively little international experience. The 4th Asia Pacific Choir Games combined with the Grand Prix of Nations Colombo 2017 offers the Open Competition, the Asia Pacific Champions Competition and the Grand Prix of Nations Colombo 2017. These three competitions allow choirs the opportunity to participate at the appropriate level an even to qualify for the higher levels.

Choirs that do not want to participate in the competitions have the chance to perform with choirs from around the world in Friendship Concerts, in an international Festival Stage Choir or to be evaluated and learn from respected international conductors.

Colombo is the largest city of Sri Lanka and a popular tourist destination. It is a busy and vibrant place with a mixture of modern life and colonial buildings and ruins. Until 1982 it was the legislative capital of Sri Lanka. Due to its large harbour and its strategic position along the East-West sea trade routes, Colombo was known to ancient traders 2,000 years ago. It was made the capital of the island when Sri Lanka was ceded to the British Empire in 1815, and its status as capital was retained when the nation became independent in 1948. In 1978, when administrative functions were moved to Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte, Colombo was designated as the commercial capital of Sri Lanka. Like many cities, Colombo's urban area extends well beyond the boundaries of a single local authority, encompassing other municipal and urban councils. The main city is home to a majority of Sri Lanka's corporate offices, restaurants and entertainment venues. Famous landmarks in Colombo include Galle Face Green, Viharamahadevi Park, Beira Lake, Colombo Racecourse, Planetarium, University of Colombo, Mount Lavinia beach, Nelum Pokuna Theatre, Colombo Lotus Tower (is being constructed) as well as the National Museum.
