New record for World Choir Games 2020
542 choirs from 69 countries and regions registered – 21,000 singers to come to Flanders in July 2020
Registration for the World Choir Games 2020 closed on December 2 and ended with a new record for the World Choir Games:
542 choirs from 69 countries and regions registered – more than ever before in the 20 years history of the event!
Every two years since the year 2000 INTERKULTUR has invited the world to the Olympic Games of choral music: the World Choir Games. Each time hosts like Austria, Korea, Germany, China, the USA, Latvia, Russia, and South Africa brought a new and unique atmosphere to this largest international choir competition in the world. In 2020 Flanders in Belgium will be the next welcoming host for 21,000 singers from all over the world.
“It’s our special pleasure that so many choirs decided to follow our event to Flanders next year. It shows us that we’re on the right track: Once infected by World Choir Games fever you can’t resist of participating over and over again. The World Choir Games 2020 will be the largest event so far, and I’m really looking forward to seeing people from all over the world bringing their music and voices to Flanders,” says INTERKULTUR President Günter Titsch.

The event takes place in the Sportpaleis in Antwerp and marks the festive opening of the World Choir Games 2020 with a fascinating music show on stage.
