1st Vietnam International Choir Festival & Competition - Hoi An 2011
INTERKULTUR proudly presents an International Choir Festival & Competition which will be the first ever in Vietnam's history.
In collaboration with the Vietnamese Central Government, the Provincial Government of Quang Nam and the City Government of Hoi An, INTERKULTUR has cre-ated a unique possibility for choirs f-rom around the globe to discover the beauty of the country, combined with an international choral event.
Hoi An can be translated as "peaceful meeting place". And if you walk around the city you can feel that this is going to be the ideal place of assembly for choirs for peaceful competitions f-rom both, local and abroad. Hoi An is located just a stone's throw f-rom Danang City with its international airport right at the central coast of Vietnam. In 1999, the old town was declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO as a well-preserved example of a Southeast Asian trading port of the 15th to the 19th centuries, with buildings that display a unique blend of local and foreign influences. Nowadays Hoi An is one of the top tourist destinations the country has to offer.
You might have been travelling quite a lot with your choir but you have never joined an international event of this kind in Vietnam. Come and experience the beauty of Vietnam’s countryside with its cultural heritage places and feel the spirit of this booming and ambitioned country in the heart of Southeast Asia. Quang Nam province has more than 120 km of coast line and even the competition venues are located directly at Hoi An's beach side.
But that's not all: Joining this choir event, you will also have the opportunity to experience the "Hoi An Full Moon" Night. Each month of the Lunar Calendar in the night of the full moon, the city of Hoi An holds this special event. So on March 18, 2011 the electricity in the whole city is going to be switched off. In this night, you can walk around in the streets, enjoy the full moon and see sensational lantern shows. In the bars and restaurants of Hoi An, they will only use countless candles to provide light.
This must be your choir's destination for 2011!
INTERKULTUR is calling up all choirs of the world to join the 1st Vietnam International Choir Festival & Competition 2011. Come to Hoi An and be part of the first ever international choral event in Vietnam!
