Soaring Voices

The ninth annual Taipei International Choral Festival will soon be under way. This thrilling event, hosted each summer by the Taipei Philharmonic Foundation, is always a highlight on Taiwan's busy musical calendar. Outstanding choirs come to Taiwan from all regions of the world for a series of concerts and events.

The festival's organisers have a gift for discovering outstanding performers and composers who excel in areas far beyond the usual media haunts as well as bringing in iconic groups that are well known to all. This year's festival features the Ateneo Singers from the Philippines, Philomela and Club for Five from Finland, the Choir of King's College from Cambridge in the UK, the University of North Texas A Capella Choir from the USA, and the Taipei Philharmonic Chorus and Chamber Choir of Taiwan.

The festival features daily concerts in the National Concert Hall beginning on July 26 Sunday and concluding on August 2 Sunday. Details about performers, programs, schedule and ticket purchases appear at the festival web site. Inquiries may also be made here:
