China International Chorus Festival 2016

China International Chorus Festival 2016

The girls’ choir from Darakhshan Campus, Pakistani Nightingales, will be representing Pakistan in the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO) Choral Summer Camp and the 13th China International Chorus Festival (CICF) in Beijing, China. It is the only choir that has been invited to participate and perform from Pakistan.

This year’s Summer Choral Camp marks the 15th anniversary of the SCO. The Ministry of Culture of China will host this Camp from 24–30 July 2016. This will help in strengthening the artistic and cultural exchange and cooperation among the SCO Member States. The Camp has invited choirs from SCO Member States, Observer States and Dialogue Partners as participants to attend the 13th China International Chorus Festival, interact with Chinese choirs and enable the Chinese public to enjoy diversified choral arts.

Organised by the Bureau of External Relations, Ministry of Culture, P.R. China and China Arts and Entertainment Group, it is the only state-level international chorus festival in China.

Good luck to the Pakistani Nightingales!
