“Mr. Olympia“ becomes China’s Honorary President of the 6th World Choir Games | Shaoxing 2010

China’s “Mister Olympia“ gets involved once more in the direct encounter between young people from all over the world. He Zhenliang, chairman of the Commission for Culture and Olympic Education of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and one of the go-getters of the Olympic Games 2008 in Peking, has been chosen as the Honorary President of the World Choir Games 2010 in Shaoxing/China. The appointment was offered to He in Peking by Ding Xiaoyan, Vice Mayor of Shaoxing, and Günter Titsch, President of the World Choir Games, and documented with a certificate. The former Vice President of the IOC, born in Shaoxing by the way, explained his huge interest in assuming this honourable task with the ideational accordance of the Olympic and the worldwide choral movement. It would be worth utmost efforts to stand up for the positive development and the peaceful cooperation between young people in the field of sports as well as in culture.

The Vice Mayor and the President of the World Choir Games emphasised towards He their joy about the support which he wants to grant the 6th World Choir Games in the historical city close to the Pearl River. Titsch stressed that he was deeply moved by the sympathy which He, one of the “leading characters of the Olympic movement“, showed to the forthcoming major event in Shaoxing.

Countdown for the next issue of the WORLD CHOIR GAMES | Shaoxing 2010

A next step forward: The 6th World Choir Games, which take place from 15th to 26th July 2010 in Shaoxing/China, will boost the further development of the city close to the Pearl River. This confidence was expressed by Qian Jianmin, Mayor of the People’s Government of Shaoxing, during a press conference in Hangzhou, the capital of the province – exactly one year before the opening of the world’s biggest choir competition. Günter Titsch, President of INTERKULTUR, emphasised the attractiveness of city and region for the participating choirs, further musical ensembles and visitors. Especially the cosmopolitan and culturally interested youth of the world would await the event in one of the oldest and most traditional cities of the country. “You will succumb to the city’s great charm“, so Titsch. In 2010 Shaoxing also celebrates its foundation 2500 years ago with numerous cultural events.

It was a great experience for us to be a part of the World Choir Games in Graz. We were overwhelmed by the warm hospitality and the great people of Graz from the time we first came into the city. It was also a great feeling to walk around the city and hear choral music all over the place. I am the conductor of the male vocal group 'The Revelations' from Sri Lanka and we were fortunate enough to win two categories at the games, Gospel & Spiritual Acapella and Male Vocal Ensemble and a silver in the Popular Choral Music category. We are looking to build links with other choirs so that we can exchange ideas and also exchange performances

My name is Matthias and I have been part of the organizing team in Graz. The extraordinary cooperation spirit of our Austrian partners and the very high skill level and colorful performances of the choirs participating were the details that impressed me most. We can organize a competition or a festival but the participants from all over the world make it an experience no attendee will ever forget! Thanks to everybody who supported us with their skills, with their participation or with just being there and listening to what's happening. Looking forward to seeing all of you again in South Korea in 2009 or Shaoxing, China in 2010 - or here on the SingerLink!
