RP Children’s Choir Groups Bagged Top Prizes at 1st World Choir Championships in South Korea

Three Philippine children’s choir groups won the top prizes at the 1st World Choir Championships held in Changwon City, Gyeongnam province in South Korea last July 10.

The three Philippine choir groups, the Mandaue Children’s Choir, the Young Voices of the Adventist University of the Philippines, and the Calasiao Children’s Chorus won in different events in the following categories:

• Mandaue Children’s Choir – First Prize, Children’s Choir category, Grand Prix of Choral Music.

• Young Voices of the Adventist University of the Philippines – Gold Prize, Children’s Choir category, 2nd Asia Choir Game, and Silver Prize, Music of the Religions category, 2nd Asian Choir Game.

• Calasiao Children’s Chorus – First Prize, Folklore category, Korean International Open Choir Competition, and Gold Prize Korean International Open Choir Competition.

Each of the choir group also received a cash award of $12,000 or around P580,000.

The World Choir Games was organized by the INTERKULTUR group and the city government of Changwon and is held every two years in different partner cities around the world, with competing choirs vying for the title of “Champions of the World Choir Games”.

The choir groups were judged by an international jury, one of whom is renowned Philippine choral conductor and former member of the Madrigal Singers, Mr. Jonathan Velasco.

The Embassy attended the choir competition in Changwon City, around four hours south of Seoul, and witnessed the respect and recognition given to the Philippines for its world-class choirs bringing honor and prestige to the country.
