The same people, who welcome visitors and tourists year after year, is opening their arms for all of us during the Philippine International Choir Competition Sing’n’Joy Bohol 2020. Can you imagine a colorful parade of choristers from several countries surrounded by our own colorful dancers and musicians marching towards the grand opening ceremony? Can you imagine the City of Friendship extending its hand to embrace each one of you? It would be a wonderful sight.

It is my honor to invite all choir singers from all over the world to visit our beautiful place and to participate in the upcoming SING`N`JOY BOHOL 2020. We look forward to welcoming you!"
