The lineup of choirs scheduled for the eight Celebration Concerts during the 2012 World Choir Games includes eight former champions, including two of the most decorated choirs in World Choir Games history, an all-star collegiate choir and a Cincinnati Public Schools Honor Choir that will perform with the Cincinnati Children's Choir.

Celebration Concerts are themed performances that showcase some of the best choirs in the world. The choirs were selected by INTERKULTUR, the Germany-based owner and producer of the World Choir Games and numerous other choral festivals throughout the world.

The 7th World Choir Games will be July 4-14 in Cincinnati. About 15,000 participants, including 352 choirs, from 61 countries have registered to participate in the World Choir Games, the Olympics of choral music that is held every two years. It will be in the United States for the first time.

Among the participating choirs in Celebration Concerts: Guangdong Experimental Middle School Choir from China with four championships and nine gold medals (most in World Choir Games history) and Kearsney College Choir from South Africa, a two-time champion and eight-time gold-medal winner.

Tickets to Celebration Concerts range from $28 to $42. They will be held in Music Hall, Aronoff Center for the Arts, Cathedral Basilica, Cincinnati Masonic Center and the School for the Creative and Performing Arts.

A day-to-day schedule of all events is on the Games' website, www.2012worldchoirgames.com. Tickets to all World Choir Games events are on sale through the website or by calling 513.977.6363.
