2016 VOCAL ASIA FESTIVAL IN TAITUNG

Mixing Old and New Voices


Feature of This Year

l  Taitung is the most beautiful city in Taiwan!  It has spectacular scenes with sunshine, fresh air, ocean, and coastal lines.  Come and be part of this beautiful place with your voice.  You’ll also be able to experience the most ancient A Cappella music in Taiwan: the Taiwanese aboriginal music, and take them with you back to your home town!

l  The 3rd Asian Cup A Cappella Competition will be there!  No need to wait for another year.  All groups are welcome to apply!

l  Great instructors as usual!  Apart from teachers from around Asia, we especially invited Michele Weir, one of the greatest vocal masters from the U.S.A., and the world-renowned A Cappella group from Cuba – Vocal Sampling, who will share the music from their homeland and get your feet up dancing.

l  Single Singers in Taitung!  For those of you are coming alone, you are not alone, and you’ll get a chance to perform!  Join Single Singers, meet new friends through music and sing together!

l  Aca Day will be arranged again this year! It is the day where you get to share your music with the local citizens and tourists. In this beautiful city of Taitung, it is the best way to sing out your music!

"VOICE WILL GUIDE YOU"  Project

"Voice Will Guide You" Special Project ~ Coldplay - Fix You

 

On July 8, Taitung was struck by the most disastrous typhoon in its history.  It was a night of horror with strong wind and heavy rain, and the next morning the entire city faced tremendous damage.  As Vocal Asia Festival approaches, we gathered the voices from around the world, hoping to encourage those who need help, and those who came to help.  Let our voices guide you, and all of us, to a peaceful place.

 

Thanks for all the participants who sing and pray together with LOVE.
