This year, the Bandung Choral Society celebrates the 10th Bali International Choir Festival. This is a special moment for us to carry out our mission to advance the choir in Indonesia and the world. After we cancelled the 9th Bali International Choir Festival due to the COVID19 pandemic in 2020, we didn't want to lose the opportunity to do it this year.
No one ever imagined this whole big world would be attacked by a small virus. All areas of life are affected by the COVID19 pandemic. This includes choir and singing activities.
At first, we hoped that this dark and difficult situation would end soon because actually preventing the spread of this virus is enough to wear masks, avoid crowds and wash hands frequently. But, who would have guessed that this super small virus infects millions of people and even takes the lives of those around us?
Our way of life has to change in all aspects, we have to adapt in this difficult situation, those who don't want to change will find a dead end or wait for the end of this Pandemic, while this COVID19 virus continues to mutate.
The choir also had to change a few things to continue singing. Since schools, houses of worship and crowd centres are closed, everything must be done from home, so singing must also be done from home. Thanks, technology is helping the singing community find a way to keep singing together on a new platform. And after most of the people received the vaccine, singing by observing the health protocols began to be carried out everywhere. The choir began to stir again, doing rehearsals and concerts is limited circumstances and some continued to perform "online" and "virtually".
Bandung Choral Society invites the Choir to continue singing activities through “The 10th BALI INTERNATIONAL CHOIR FESTIVAL 2021”, 1-5 December. This edition is online with an additional plan to open the opportunity to perform live in Bali if the situation in Bali and the world improves, and the permission to organize is given.
We hope to continue our singing activities, practice, hold concerts and competitions. We all miss the time to sing together and meet the community that gives life happiness and
spirit. We provide various options to participate in “The 10th Bali International Choir Festival”. Please participate in the categories that match the group situation and interests of your Choir. I am sure that by joining this Festival, your Choir will discover the passion and pleasure of singing and performing with friends and the community.
Let's keep singing. Keep it up and work! We deserve to be happy!
