A great festival in a “Peaceful meeting place”
In 2011, INTERKULTUR brought to Hội An the first choral competition ever to be hosted in Vietnam. It was the beginning of a new event series, which continued in Huế 2012 and which will come back to Hội An in 2013.
In collaboration with the Vietnamese Central Government, the Provincial Government of Quang Nam and the City Government of Hội 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.
Hội 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 meeting place for choirs for peaceful competitions f-rom both, local and abroad. Hội 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, Hội An is one of the top tourist destinations the country has to offer.
INTERKULTUR is calling up all choirs of the world to join the 3rd Vietnam International Choir Competition 2013. Come to Hội An and become part of the fascinating atmosphere of this c-harming city!
