„We bring the pride of nations along with our singing hearts…“
The 4th Asia Pacific Choir Games open in Sri Lanka on Saturday
Choirs from nine different nations will delve into a new, exotic culture when joing the 4th Asia Pacific Choir Games & Grand Prix of Nations Colombo 2017 that will start with a spectacular Opening Ceremony on Saturday, October 21. It’s the first-ever INTERKULTUR event in this island country and the hosts will use the opportunity to introduce themselves, the country’s traditional music and culture to the international participants.
The Opening Ceremony will happen on Saturday, October 21 at Temple Trees, the official residence of the Prime Minister of Sri Lanka. After the official welcoming ceremony and welcome speeches, also international choirs will present themselves to the hosting country. They come from Indonesia, China and India and will contribute with music from their respective home countries to the festive ceremony.
The expectations are high for the upcoming 4th Asia Pacific Choir Games. Both guests and hosts are looking foward to enriching meetings , concerts and a unique multi-cultural exchange. The theme song of the event, „Asia Aura“ – that will unite all participants in song at the end of the Opening Ceremony, accompanied by the Symphony Orchestra of Sri Lanka – even gets to the heart of what will happen in Colombo within the next days:
„We bring the pride of nations along with our singing hearts, we bring vivid glimpses of cultures along with harmony of music. Let’s seize the moment in a lifetime…“
We’re looking forward to the upcoming festival days, happy to be in Sri Lanka for the very first time. We’re curious about what the country has to offer and hope to open a door to international choir events to all the local choirs we’be been meeting here!
