World Choir Games in Tshwane
The World Choir Games take place in Pretoria from 4 to 14 July. The 'Voices of the World' gather to sing in the world's largest choir celebration. Bearing songs and a dazzling display of cultural diversity, each of the choirs offer their vocal best in this keenly fought contest. But besides competition, the World Choir Games are all about harmony, respect, unity and most of all global friendship.
Two choirs from Flanders will be participating in the World Choir Games. Make sure not to miss Show Choir Rise Up from Neerpelt and Youth Choir Waelrant from Borgerhout.
Show Choir Rise Up is the first of two Flemish choirs competing in the World Choir Games taking place in Pretoria. This girls choir was founded in 2006 and hails from Neerpelt, Belgium.
