THEME

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.

EVENTS

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)
  • Masterclasses
