DESCRIPTION

The Asia Choral Grand Prix (ACGP) is a competition of the top prize winners of the 2017 and 2018 competitions of each of the following international choral festivals in Asia: the Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival (Philippines), the Bali International Choir Festival (Indonesia), and the Singapore International Choral Festival (Singapore). The ACGP will be held every two years starting in 2019. The first will be hosted by the Philippines and will take place at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The next ACGP will be held in Indonesia in 2021, and in Singapore in 2023. 

The six participating choirs are as follows: the Brawijaya University Student Choir (Indonesia) and the University of the Philippines Los Baños Choral Ensemble (Philippines) representing the Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival; e Deum Voice (Indonesia) and the Paduan Suara Mahasiswa Universitas Padjadjaran (Indonesia) representing the Bali International Choir Festival; and the Vocalista Harmonic Choir ISI from Yogyakarta (Indonesia) and the St. Louis High School Choir (Indonesia) representing the Singapore International Choir Festival.

Each participating choir must render a varied programme of its choice with a maximum singing time of 20 minutes. A jury of five internationally renowned adjudicators with a maximum of two Asians will evaluate the competition. Jointly organized by the artistic and festival directors of the three competitions, ACGP aims to elevate the overall quality and appreciation of the choral art, and inspire audiences and artists through choral music by uniting the outstanding festivals and competitions in Asia. ACGP will coincide with the last day of the 4th Andrea O. Veneracion International Choral Festival which will be held at the Cultural Center of the Philippines on July 18 to 21.
