This time INTERKULTUR is cooperating with the Provincial Government of North Sulawesi, kindly supported by the Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy of the Republic of Indonesia.
North Sulawesi is the gateway to vacation and adventure in the southwest Pacific and has come to be known as "The Land of Smiling People". As one of the newest developing destinations in Asia, it has a full range of activities, from world-class diving and snorkelling, to volcano trekking, white water rafting and a variety of historic & cultural attractions to keep all ages captivated.
At the same time the province with its capital of Manado City, the cities of Tomohon, Bitung and others is holding one of the strongest choral communities all over the globe with thousands of mostly church based choirs. North Sulawesi, one of 33 Indonesian provinces, is the one with the highest Christian population in the world’s largest Muslim country; therefore it has a unique concentration of choirs which might be only comparable with the Baltic Republics in Europe. So North Sulawesi is the perfect place to host Asia’s largest choir competition in 2013.
