“Today is a new day”
Tomorrow it will be the best. World Choir Games start.
“Today is a new day”, that was the song the “ONE IN SONG” choir directed to the US gospel singer Kirk Franklin today.
He had gathered for a rehearsal in the U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati with the mass choir in the afternoon. Franklin knew perfectly how to cheer the members of different ages: "You have great voices and I know that you all have been working hard, you are great!" he enthusiastically praised.
On Wednesday, Independence Day, the Opening Ceremony will take place at 19:00 local time. The Cincinnati Pops Orchestra and May Festival Chorus are further special highlights of this evening’s schedule.
The 7th World Choir Games will be held from July 4 to 14, 2012 in Cincinnati USA. 15 000 participants from 64 nations, among them 362 choirs have registered and travel to the United States to compete in a total of 23 musical categories.
This year the World Choir Games will be held on the American continent for the first time ever.
