An international sacred choral festival is scheduled for April 2002 in the Gianyar Regency of Bali. The Pesta Paduan Suara Gerejawi , the first sacred Choral Festival to be held in Bali, will include expected participants from Australia, Germany, France, Holland and the U.S.A..
In appointing the organizing committee for the event last Friday (November 9), the Regent (Bupati) of Gianyar, Mr. Tjok Suryawan, said that he hoped such an event would help introduce the Gianyar region to the world and restore normal tourism flows disrupted by the sudden drop in international travel in the wake of the events of September 11.
Next year's festival is being held in response to a personal invitation made last Christmas by Gianyar's Regent to the area's Christian suggesting a sacred choral festival be held.
A local Christian Minister, the Reverend Drs. Nicolaas Kailola will serve as Chairman for the event.
