Participation opportunities

The World Choir Games invites all non-professional choirs of the world to participate. The Games offer fair and realistic competition to experienced competitive choirs as well as choirs with relatively little international experience. The World Choir Games offer The Champions Competition and The Open Competition. These two competitions allow choirs the opportunity to participate at the appropriate level.

Choirs who choose not to be placed in competition, but seek to be part of the international experience of the can participate in the non-competitive evaluation activities.
