The World Choir Games are hosted biennially (every even year) in a select city across the globe. Choirs compete in select categories; the 2012 games had 23, such as "Music of Religions". The World Choir Games consist mostly of competition in two categories, award ceremonies, and opening and closing ceremonies held at the beginning and end of the games, respectively. Choirs compete in two classes (Champions and Open) for Gold, Silver, Bronze, or "Successful Participation" awards. Also, choirs may choose to participate in workshops featuring renowned choral instructors and friendship concerts, free public concerts where choirs share music with choristers from different parts of the world.

Famous quotes containing the word general:
“Surely one of the peculiar habits of circumstances is the way they follow, in their eternal recurrence, a single course. If an event happens once in a life, it may be depended upon to repeat later its general design.”
—Ellen Glasgow (18731945)
“We do not need to minimize the poverty of the ghetto or the suffering inflicted by whites on blacks in order to see that the increasingly dangerous and unpredictable conditions of middle- class life have given rise to similar strategies for survival. Indeed the attraction of black culture for disaffected whites suggests that black culture now speaks to a general condition.”
—Christopher Lasch (b. 1932)
“A constitutional statesman is in general a man of common opinions and uncommon abilities.”
—Walter Bagehot (18261877)
