We are pleased to introduce some choirs, which will attend the biggest choral event worldwide: The World Choir Games in Sochi 2016. The following choir comes from the world's largest island state, Indonesia.
The Indonesia Raksamahiva Camudresu Choir (IRCC) is the Indonesia Coast Guard Choir team consists of ICG's employees who have talents and passions of singing established in 2011, in the leading period of Chief Executive of Indonesia Maritime Security Coordinating Board, VADM (Ret.) Didik Heru Purnomo. The latest Presidential Regulation No. 178/2014 about Badan Keamanan Laut (Bakamla/Indonesia Coast Guard) has been granted on December 9, 2014, therefore Indonesia Maritime Security Coordinating Board changed into Indonesia Coast Guard.
In the beginning, the group was formed from a few enthusiastic employees in the art of singing. Until September 2015, IRCC has managed to record and produce 8 choral albums.
Along the way, IRCC took part in various internal activities of ICG such as, anniversary, opening for workshops, seminar, or welcoming ceremony for foreign delegation etc. The IRCC already participated in some international events. During the 14th International Choir Competition & Festival in Budapest, Hungary (2013) the choir achieved a Golden Diploma in the category Folklore. Furthermore the choir competed in Canta al mar 2013, the World Choir Games 2014 in Riga and in Voci dal Lido 2015 in Italy.
