'BELT AND ROAD' WORLD CHOIR FESTIVAL – HONG KONG
15-19 JULY 2018

As the title suggests, the new choir festival echoes the ‘Belt & Road’ initiative which advocates for deeper and tighter cultural exchanges and connections across the Eurasian continent.
The festival is therefore envisaged to be an all-encompassing platform to explore the history and cultural heritage of such related countries through the choral arts, and to search for artistic and choral perfection from all over the world – through which we hope to share and celebrate peace, love, and cultural diversity.
There will be plenty of educational activities within the festival, including
- Belt & Road Choral Competition
- Belt & Road Starry Concerts Series
- Interactive Workshops (in which participating choirs will workshop and perform together with one of the Resident Artists)
- Cultural Excursions
- Friendly Concerts (where participating choirs perform for and learn from each other)

The festival has invited definitive and world-leading choirs as Resident Artists: the Ponomaryov ‘Vesna’ Children’s Choir (winner of the Grand Prize of the Béla Bartók 27th International Choir Competition); the New Zealand Secondary Students’ Choir (NZSSC, winner of the ‘Choir of the World’ title at the predecessor of WYCCF); and Moran aingers Ensemble. The choirs will give a series of spectacular performances, masterclasses & workshops throughout.
