Preamble

Singing together brings nations together

The idea of the World Choir Games originates from the effort to bring together people and peoples, who are united through singing, in peaceful competition. This way, the coming together of nations also in arts, can be effectively and illustratively demonstrated and continuously challenged.

Participation is the highest honor

As the world’s biggest choir competition, the World Choir Games shall inspire people to experience the strength of interaction which is able to challenge personality and community equally by singing together. Participation alone is important and the greatest honor. The World Choir Games are organized for amateur choirs from all over the world, no matter which continent they come from or which musical genres are represented in their repertoires or which artistic ambitions they have.

To experience this festival for choirs from all over the world means to participate, to contribute one’s own performance, to compare to others and to experience the enthusiasm of singing together. Every two years, choirs from all parts of the world come together to celebrate the World Choir Games. Together they are going to celebrate a great festival of music, song and joie de vivre.
