The World Choir Games are an international choir event of INTERKULTUR and will be organized in Flanders in 2020 on the initiative of Event Flanders, a joint venture of Tourism Flanders, the department of Culture, Youth and Media and the Department of Foreign Affairs, in collaboration with the city of Antwerp, the city ​​of Ghent and Koor & Stem vzw.

The motto is ‘Singing together brings nations together’. Participating is more important than winning and therefore the Games are suitable for all kinds of choirs at every level. Choirs can participate in many activities, with or without competition. The World Choir Games are a lively choral festival for everyone, even for those who do not come into contact with choral singing!

Dutch choirs are close to the Games!
The World Choir Games 2020 will take place from 5 – 15 July 2020 in Antwerp and Ghent (B) and are organized by the Flemish choir organization Koor & Stem in collaboration with Interkultur and many other partners. The 2020 edition promises to be a great event thanks to the efforts of the Flemish people. For Dutch choirs, the Games 2020 are especially attractive because they take place close by and therefore result in fewer costs.

During the Games in South Africa, the Dutch choir world was represented by Dekoor Close Harmony in 2018 (see right-hand column). The choir lives, said the chairman of Dekoor, ‘still in a daze’ after this fantastic event. Other Dutch choirs now have the chance to experience that intoxication by participating in the World Choir Games 2020 in Antwerp and Ghent.
