The new coronavirus (COVID-19) is continuing to spread all over the world and we are witness to this worldwide pandemic which has caused the cancellation or postponement of international choral events.
We checked the COVID-19 situation in the countries represented in the APYC, and several countries are beginning to see a second wave although the situation in Malaysia is improving.
The Working Committee of the Asia Pacific Choral Council decided yesterday to postpone the APYC2020 session in Kuala Lumpur to November 2021.
We are mainly concerned with travel restrictions and self-isolation policies:
The participants' safety and health are important to us.
At this time, we would like to announce that the all selected singers for APYC 2020 are invited to our next APYC session in 2021.
