The African Choral Festival brings together choirs from all over Africa and the rest of the world in order to provide an opportunity to perform in the spirit of friendship, to compare, collaborate, learn from each other, and form lasting friendships.
The participating choirs will be able to present themselves in several concerts during the festival. This helps the foreign choirs to acquaint themselves with various venues in Ghana before and after the Festival.
The main aim of the African Choral Festival is to be an international platform for the development and propagation of Africa’s rich choral music.
The Festival is preceded by a National Competitive selection process for Ghanaian Choirs applying to participate in the festival. A total of 3 of the best Ghanaian Choirs will be selected through this process for participation in the international festival.
Visiting choirs get the opportunity to perform at the Grand National Theatre as well as the historical and Cape Coast Castle visited by President Barack Obama and his family in 2009.
