2019 Busan Choral Festival & Competition Gets Underway

The opening concert features Finland’s Rajaton, a six-voice a cappella group that have recorded 16 albums over 20 years of music.

This year, more than 1,600 people are participating, including 19 foreign choirs from 9 countries, and 9 domestic choirs.

On the 18th, a gala concert featuring the folklore contest, the most sought-after part of the choral contest, will be presented.
