So you and your choir fancy a challenge? They don't come greater than the World Choir Games which in July 2016 will take place in Sochi, Russia. Every two years this massive competition comes to a different continent and the last ones were in Riga, in Latvia.
With 29 different categories, for all types of voice choirs and for any kind of repertoire from Rock to A Cappella, Jazz to Sacred, you can compete with others in what you are good at.
There's more: as the hosts anticipate much interest from visiting singers in their country, they have put together a concert tour for which you can sign up as an individual. Conducted by renowned choral directors and singing in the company of others from across the world, you will tour to St Petersburg and Moscow. To take part in that, sign up to the World Festival Singers.
In both those types of events there are also lots of non-competitive opportunities to perform and attend workshops, and above all to get a feel for the vast international choral movement and be part of a singing movement that spans all cultures and countries.
