World Choir Events in the Belt and Road
The church Betlehemskyrkan

Take part in an exciting and varied program where several Chinese choirs present Chinese choral music with current composers. There will also be choral music from Scandinavia with choirs from Sweden and a unique international exchange: Chinese choirs will learn and perform Swedish choral pieces and Sweden choirs will present their skills with Chinese choral works. Further you can listen to panel discussions comparing choral pedagogy and development and choral education between China and Europe during the day, watch a video presentation about the cultural life from the famous "Silk Road", learn a Chinese choir song led by Mr. Chen Guanghui and we will also sing European Choir Games own theme song together. This is a unique opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the exciting Chinese choir life and its rich tradition.
