Festival of Choirs is an event to celebrate 50 years of dedicated service by the Institute of Western Music and Speech (IWMS) to the children of our nation.
This Festival of Choirs, will be the first of its kind, that aims at all levels of choral singing. Given the rising interest in choral music, and our own Sri Lankan choirs, having brought honour to the country internationally, the Institute would like to further encourage local choirs, giving them the chance to develop their talents, and an opportunity to perform and excel.
The BMICH will reverberate with the blend of voices in harmony, when the IWMS will present the finals of this competition on September 11 at 5 p.m.
The well-known choirs of some of the leading schools are among the finalists.
