Festival and Competition 2013:
  • The UK’s leading travel magazine, Wanderlust, has recently declared Hoi An the world’s top city destination in its latest Readers’ Travel Awards. In March 2011 INTERKULTUR organized the first ever International Choir Competition in Vietnam’s history in the city of Hoi An. After a short break of absence the 3rd Vietnam International Choir Competition will come back to Hoi An in 2013, from June 19 - 23. Hoi An, the “peaceful meeting place” can`t wait to reunite the choirs of the world after being the first in chronology of this new INTERKULTUR event in Vietnam. It is clear that this again will be an ideal place of assembly for peaceful competitions for choirs from both, local and abroad. Not only Hoi An’s handcrafted and colourful lanterns will be illuminating the city in the evening but also the voices from different nations and traditions will be given a wonderful shining glance to the small town.
    The 3rd Vietnam International Choir Competition is open for all amateur choirs and will give opportunity for participation in six different categories.
    In collaboration with the Vietnamese Central Government, the Provincial Government of Quang Nam and the City Government of Hoi An, choirs from around the globe will again have the chance to discover the beauty of the country, combined with an international choral event.
    Come and meet at one of the top cities of the world! More to find out more visit
