Choral festival launched

Following the launch of the National Song Festival in 2012 and based on its success, the festival was renamed the National Choral Festival, and on Friday evening the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sport launched the second edition of the festival which is scheduled for October 19.

The festival has expanded, and this year 50 new and existing groups are targeted, while new categories are to be introduced all in aid of revitalising choral singing in Guyana, GINA said.
