As the largest-scale and highest-level international chorus festival held in China, CICF is a cultural activity which brings choirs both at home and abroad together to sing. It is held once every two years, and the past 13 CICFs have been proved a great success. CICF plays an important role in improving performance level of the participating choruses and promoting cultural exchanges between China and other countries.

    As a much-loved festival among worldwide choirs, CICF has a great influence and enjoys unanimous praise from professionals, chorus groups as well as people from all walks of life. According to incomplete statistics, in the past 13 festivals, the number of participating choirs has exceeded 2000 and more than 60,000 choir members were involved.
