Auckland will be in full voice next month as 11,000 singers hit town for The World Choir Games.

250 choirs from more than 30 countries, representing a diverse range of choral music styles will compete across 28 categories.

The philosophy behind the Games is unity in fair competition through song, based on the premise music can act as a bridge between countries and cultures. 

Christine Argyle is Chief Executive of the New Zealand Choral Federation, the host organisation for the Games.
