The inaugural Belt & Road World Choir Festival echoes the vision of the Belt & Road Initiative that promotes deeper cultural exchanges and tighter connections across Eurasia – an idea which perfectly aligns with WYCCAA’s mission and commitment to the musical world. Through choral arts, the Festival will explore the history and cultural heritage of the Belt & Road related countries and searches for artistic and choral perfection from all over the world. Through which we hope to share and celebrate peace, love and cultural diversity.
