Continuing the  two WORLD VIRTUAL CHOIR FESTIVAL events, now BANDUNG CHORAL SOCIETY is presenting the 3rd World Virtual Choir Festival.

This Virtual Festival is intended to provide a platform  for activities for Choir singers to continue singing and giving performances.  For the situation during the COVID19 Pandemic is still ongoing and does not provide opportunities for singers to gather, they cannot practice, make performance and attend the Choir Competition as usual before the COVID19 Pandemic.
In addition, by participating in the 3rd World Virtual Choir Festival, singers can stay active and communicate happily with friends and teachers / coaches, and doing special works and make achievements.

The 3rd World Virtual Choir Festival will be held on 30 April - 7 May 2021. The Bandung Choral Society, which has successfully held 3 Virtual Choir Festivals over the years, will present a special quality of organizing and lots of great surprises.  The judges selected are choir experts and conductors from various countries with impressive achievements and works.

In the 3rd World Virtual Choir Festival 2021, apart from various categories for Choir and Solo Singing, Bandung Choral Society provides other Competition Categories, namely: GRAND PRIX VIRTUAL CHOIR.  This category is open for Virtual Choirs who have won a diploma / gold medal from the previous Virtual Festivals. 

Let's participate in the 3rd World Virtual Choir Festival to give each of your Choir singers an opportunity to remain active, creative and healthy during this COVID19 Pandemic.  Hopefully we can all stay happy and safe during this difficult time by continuing to sing.
