The World Choir Games are coming back to the Republic of Korea, the organizer announced. The city of Gangneung, located in the Province of Gangwon, is the second Korean city after Busan in 2002 to host the world’s largest international choir competition. From July 4-14, 2022 Gangneung is to become the meeting place for choir singers from all over the world to celebrate 11 days of competitions, singing together, international friendship, and cultural exchange.
