We are happy to see you in 2013 Yeosu International Choir Competition & Festival.
Under the Slogan of “Songs of Ocean, Songs of Joy”, the 2013 Yeosu International Choir Competition & Festival will be a venue where people who love choral music gather to sing and share love together.
In particular, the 2013 Yeosu International Choir Competition & Festival is going to be held to celebrate successfully closed 2012 Yeosu World Expo, so it is more meaningful.
We believe it will be a wonderful Choir Festival that will be remembered in everyone’s heart for a long time with the beautiful ocean of Yeosu which was selected as one of the World’s four most scenic harbor cities.
We hope to see you all in Yesou.
