The 2nd international choir competition opened at the Thua Thien-Hue Sporting Center in Hue City on December 12.

The event, co-organised by the German Interkultul Association and the Thua Thien-Hue provincial People’s Committee, is part of the National Tourism Year 2012 in the North-central Coastal Region.

Addressing the opening ceremony, Thomas Schule, Director of the International Relations Department of Interkultul Association, stressed that the competition is a good opportunity for the Vietnamese choir group to share experience with their foreign partners.

It also helps people across the world gain a better understanding of this type of music, he added.

The five-day event has drawn more than 600 artists from 17 international and domestic choir groups taking part in a choir festival and  competition.

During the event, a series of friendship concerts will also be held in public places around the former imperial city of Hue.
