Bali: An Island of Choral Harmony

Choral Music Symposium and International Choir Competition Coming to Bali August 3-9, 2012


The Bali Symposium on Choral Music (BCSM-2012) is coming to the island August 3-6. 2012 followed by the Bali International Choir Competition (BICC-2012) August 6-9, 2012.

The back-to-back musical events will strive to provide diverse experiences and challenging choral activities for choir members and their conductors from around the world.

Choirs from Europe, U.S.A, Canada, East and Southeast Asia are expected to travel to the island to participate in the learning sessions and compete in what organizers promise will be a joyful and challenging musical experience.

Unique intercultural workshops will see Balinese musicians join forces with choral musicians in creating new sounds. The resulting compositions will be based on the traditional Balinese gamelan, songs and dramatic narrative tales and dances. Vocal improvisations using Balinese and Western musical motifs will also be employed.

According to Professor André de Quadros, Artistic Director for the Bali festival -  choirs, individual conductors, and individual singers from all over the world are invited to cone to Bali and participate. Participating choirs may give concert performances, participate in Balinese music and dance workshops, collaborate with local and international choirs, and join clinics with distinguished European, Asian, and American clinicians. Individual participants, conductors and singers will participate in symposium sessions focusing on innovative and dynamic creative choral work and professional development. As part of the symposium, all participants will sing Vaughan Williams’ timeless masterpiece Dona Nobis Pacem with a symphony orchestra and Balinese music and dance.

While Indonesian choral groups have won numerous international honors, this is the first international choral festival to be held on the island of Bali.

Bali Discovery Tours has a range of excellent quality budget priced accommodation available for visiting choirs, some with functions rooms suitable for practice sessions and warm ups.
