“Choral music is not a doctor, but it still brings a different type of cure in our lives.
Our separation can be held together through the reconciliation of singing voices.
Our broken hearts can be cured through the restoration of singing voices.
Our mournful tears can be wiped away through the consolation of singing voices."

Choirs from all around the world,
Come and join us in Busan city of beautiful Choral music for the 13th Busan Choral Festival & Competition. Let's make the world singing all together beyond race, ideology and politics.
