Hội An 2013: Much more than hot air

Hội An 2013 becomes hot and heavy in these days. The first competitions of the 3rd Vietnam International Choir Competition 2013 are running and the heat outside makes everybody sweat. And then at yesterday’s opening event a huge fire fountain did one more thing.

But with all heat there was also a goose bump moment: Singers and dancers from Vietnam had taken the American choral members by the hand guiding them on stage with “USA for Africa – We are the world” playing in the background: “Let us realize, oh that a change can only come, when we stand together as one…” So touching!

The opening ceremony featured a lot of Vietnamese dances and singing. The host city perfectly presented itself to its guests from all over. The international choirs from Australia, Indonesia, Chinese Thaipeh, Korea and the USA also did their bit and entertained the audience performing choral music from all around the world.

Today the choirs sing in the competitions for the first time. First videos are already posted to the world wide web, photos can be found on flickr.
