World Choir Games countdown starting
The Countdown to the Games officially begins on July 11! The 2012 World Choir Games will be the largest international event ever held in Cincinnati USA, and with the event nearly one year away, a countdown celebration is planned on Fountain Square on Monday, July 11 from 11:30 - 1:30.
Cincinnati's own Drew Lachey will serve as emcee, several music artists and choirs will be on hand to perform and Whirl, the Official Mascot of the 2012 World Choir Games, will make his public debut. The event will also feature the unveiling of the 2012 World Choir Games Countdown Clock, and Fountain Square will be abuzz with strolling choirs and festival-style booths celebrating the region’s rich international flavor, hosted by local international chambers and the Cincinnati USA Sister City Association. Collectible pins and other 2012 World Choir Games merchandise will also be available for the first time.
Please mark your calendar for Monday, July 11 and join hundreds of music fans, arts patrons, hospitality professionals and local residents as we kick start a yearlong cultural celebration leading up to the Games next year. We look forward to seeing you then!
