The 17th Fukushima Vocal Ensemble Competition 2024
"Inspiring singing voices, Resonating to the true skies"
21 March – 24 March 2024 Fukushima, Japan

The Fukushima Vocal Ensemble Competition is the biggest choral competition for small vocal ensemble groups (2-16 singers) in Japan. Every year we invite more than 120 top level choirs selected from all over Japan. And now the competition is open internationally to share the joy of singing with people from all around the world.
Fukushima is known as the “Kingdom of Choirs” in Japan, which has a big population of music fans and award-winning choirs. You are cordially invited to experience the fascinating atmosphere of our music cities, and let your singing voices ring out together under the sky, that a 19th century poet once described as the “True Sky.”
