NDO – The 2017 International Choir Competition will take place from June 7-11 in the ancient city of Hoi An, the central province of Quang Nam, bringing together 1,000 choir performers.

The participants come from 32 choirs from 10 countries and territories around the world.

In addition to official competitions, the choirs will give performances in the programme themed ‘International Rhymes’, on June 8-9 at Hoi An ancient town.
