One of America’s most celebrated gatherings of young singers, the Golden Gate International Children’s and Youth Choral Festival attracts choirs from all over the world to perform, compete, and build international friendship. Join us in concerts throughout the week!
Crossing boundaries. Igniting hope. Stretching into the unknown. This is the magic that music can work in the world. The Golden Gate International Children's and Youth Choral Festival is an unforgettable week of rehearsals, public performances, friendly competition, and cultural exchange. From July 8-14, 2012, top American and international choirs will gather together under the batons of Artistic Director Robert Geary and eminent guest conductors Maria Guinand and Stephen Leek. Together, we will embark on a voyage of musical discovery. The children will sing, learn and live with their peers from far and wide, rendering the faceless into friends.
