The African Asia Pacific Choir Games are set to take place on the tropical island of Mauritius from September 27 – October 5, 2025!
This will be the first time the Games will be held in Mauritius, and they are expected to attract choirs from all over Africa and Asia, but also from the rest of the world. The event will be a
great opportunity for all singers and conductors to experience Mauritius’ culture and hospitality first-hand!
Minister of Youth Empowerment, Sports and Recreation, Stephan Toussaint states: “We are thrilled that the Republic of Mauritius has been entrusted to be the host country for such a renowned global event which will be spread out across many great venues on the island. We will be honored to welcome all choirs, participants and visitors to our paradise island and enable them to discover the unique tropical African destination. Mauritius… It is not just a destination … It is a magical experience…”
INTERKULTUR President Günter Titsch says: “I’m honored to announce this spectacular new destination in our choral calendar. Mauritius is an island where everybody dreams of, and I’m really proud that we are able to make this dream become reality for choirs from all over the world. Thank you to our partners, the Ministry of Youth Empowerment, Sports and Recreation in
Mauritius for this unique opportunity!”
Robert Datnow, Co-Founder and Managing Director of The Sports Consultancy comments: “Thanks to our extensive host city network, our combined consulting, commercial and legal
expertise and the competitive public procurement process that we managed, TSC is delighted to have supported INTERKULTUR to secure Mauritius as the first ever host of what will, I’m sure,
be an incredibly exciting and popular African Asia Pacific Choir Games in 2025”
This idea of the World Choir Games is based on the personal experience of choir singers from all over the world who pick up and pass on human ideals through song. It contributes to people
overcoming conflicts and setting, through their social interaction, an example for other people. Music is the common language of the world and serves as a link between cultures and nations.
Singing together brings nations together
The idea of the World Choir Games originates from the effort to bring together people and nations, who are united through singing, in peaceful competition. This way, the coming together
of nations also in arts, can be effectively and illustratively demonstrated and continuously challenged.
Participation is the highest honor
As the world’s biggest choir competition, the World Choir Games shall inspire people to sing together. Participation alone is important and the greatest honour. The World Choir Games are
organized for amateur choirs from all over the world, no matter which continent they come from or which musical genres they represent or which artistic ambitions they have.
To experience this festival of choirs from all over the world means to participate, to contribute one’s own performance, to compare to others and to experience the enthusiasm of singing together. Every two years, choirs from all parts of the world come together to celebrate the World Choir Games. Together they are celebrating a great festival of music, song and joie de vivre.
