The venues for the World Choir Games 2016 have been confirmed
The preparations for the world’s biggest choral event continue
On the occasion of the 9th World Choir Games 2016 INTERKULTUR has selected the venues for competitions, gala and friendship concerts as well as the official opening and closing ceremonies in cooperation with the city of Sochi.
For singers from all over the world it will be a great honour to sing on the stages of those huge concert halls where previously the world’s leading athletes met. For the official ceremonies the sports palace "Bolshoy Ice Dome" as well as the "Eisberg" are available. Both extravagant multifunctional arenas were built for the Olympic Winter Games 2014 and each of them offers seats for 12.000 visitors.
Numerous concert halls such as the Winter Theatre and the Organ Chamber Hall in Sochi offer perfect conditions for concert performances in 29 categories. International musicians, dancers and singers, amongst them the Royal Ballet, have already performed on these stages. Now choirs from all parts of the world have the opportunity to sing at these impressive buildings.
The Riviera Park in Sochi offers its visitors not only a timeout in nature but also the possibility to get to know other cultures during friendship concerts and to visit gala concerts at the "Green Theatre". The concert hall "Festivalny" will also open its doors for the international choral community.
The World Choir Games –Centre, the main media center „Omega“ at the Olympic Park, will not only be home for the World Choir Games organisation team but also be venue for competitions and workshops with renowned choral experts. Further venues will be announced shortly.
The organisation team of INTERKULTUR is looking forward to the upcoming World Choir Games and exciting performances on Sochi’s stages.
