The World Choir Games are the Olympics of choral music.. For more than a decade, the Games have united people from around the world through the power of song and in the spirit of friendly competition. Throughout the event’s history, more than 2,000 choirs have participated in competitions across Europe and Asia. During those two weeks in Cincinnati, hundreds of choirs and thousands of visitors came to Cincinnati to share their cultural heritage and to celebrate our global community with music, the common language of the world.
