The World Harmony Chorus, a non-profit and non-government support group for PyeongChang’s 2018 Winter Olympic bid, is planning a Grand Chorus Celebration when volunteers from around the world sing together and show their support.
The Grand Chorus Celebration takes place May 14 to show the world that Korean people are passionate about wanting to bring the Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games to PyeongChang in 2018.
The event takes place simultaneously at several locations, and will be broadcast live by the Korean Broadcasting Corporation (KBS), Korea’s public broadcasting network.
The chorus wants to establish a new Guinness World Record for the greatest number of people in a chorus line, surpassing the current record set April 3, 2004, in California, involving 1628 participants.
Yang Ho Cho, PyeongChang 2018 Chairman and CEO said, “as we enter the final two months of our campaign we are grateful for the unwavering support of people in Korea and around the world. This special event will be an inspiration for us and it gives us the momentum as we prepare for the important IOC Technical Briefing in Lausanne next week. We will remain committed to our efforts to promote our message of New Horizons until the very last moment”.
