China International Chorus Festival
Founded in 1992, China International Chorus Festival (CICF) is currently the only state-level international chorus festival in China which approved by the state council. As the largest-scale and highest-level international chorus festival held in China, CICF is a cultural activity which brings choirs both at home and abroad together to sing. It is held once every two years, and the past 12 CICFs have been proved a great success. CICF plays an important role in improving performance level of the participating choruses and promoting cultural exchanges between China and other countries.
As a much-loved festival among worldwide choirs, CICF has a great influence and enjoys unanimous praise from professionals, chorus groups as well as people from all walks of life. According to incomplete statistics, in the past 12 festivals, the number of participating choirs has exceeded 1000 and more than 47,000 choir members were involved.
In the tenet of “Build a harmonious world together for the future---Peace and Friendship”, CICF invites people from different countries and regions, of different nationalities and colors to come together and compete on the same platform. Performers sing for peace and friendship, express their happiness and desire for peace，spread friendship and love throughout the world. CICF sticks to the principle of combining art competitions with cultural exchange and performance and try to organize an international and open art festival with authority and fairness. The 14th China International Chorus Festival will be held from July 19 to 25, 2018. We sincerely welcome choral lover from all over the world to join us building the sky of choral music.
