Let the Games begin!
The 12th World Choir Games are currently underway in Gangneung, South Korea, with over 300 choirs from around the globe taking part in 10 days of competitions, non-competitive evaluation sessions, workshops, coaching sessions, friendship concerts, awards ceremonies, celebration concerts and more!
John Rosser, Christine Argyle and Kylie Sealy are currently in Gangneung, with Kylie scoping out the event (as Executive Director of the 13th WCG in Auckland next year), and John and Christine serving on the international jury (while also taking the opportunity to see behind the scenes, ahead of our own hosting in 2024!). Christine says: "These really are the friendly games, with choirs ranging from small children through to seniors, all having the time of their lives! The emphasis is very much on participation and encouraging choirs in the next stage of their progress, wherever they are at. Having seen the event first-hand now, I know our New Zealand choirs will be totally at home competing alongside choirs from around the world. And for those that are shy of competing, I would really encourage them to come and take part in the non-competitive evaluation and coaching sessions, and to be part of a spectacular event that will go down in the choir's history."
