Come to New Zealand for the 13th World Choir Games!
In July 2024, the city of Auckland in New Zealand will be hosting the world’s largest international choir competition.
Although New Zealand has been made famous by being the scenographic land of The Hobbit, the country was long renowned for its manaakitanga – its culture of warm welcome and hospitality that will also be a hallmark of the 13th World Choir Games where visitors will be honored, supported and even uplifted.
Aotearoa New Zealand is a singing nation, with a thriving choir culture in every town and city. The country’s musical traditions reflect the rich diversity of its multicultural population and are woven through the fabric of New Zealand’s largest city, Auckland.
Join us at the World Choir Games 2024 and receive a warm welcome and an unforgettable cultural experience! In the spirit of manaakitanga you will be made to feel part of the New Zealand whānau – its family!
