Sing’n’Joy <strong>Provo</strong> <strong>2016</strong>, has officially begun.<br />

The Brigham Young University School of<br />

Music is delighted to host the <strong>2016</strong> INTER-<br />

KULTUR festival, Sing’n’Joy. We welcome<br />

you to the BYU campus, situated in the<br />

foothills of the magnificent Rocky Mountains.<br />

Utah is home to the Mighty Five National<br />

parks, which are visited by millions of<br />

visitors from around the world each year.<br />

But more importantly, Utah has a tradition<br />

of deep appreciation for the fine arts, and<br />

especially for the art of choral singing.<br />

We are pleased to share our campus with<br />

the INTERKULTUR festival. We express our<br />

warm appreciation for the choirs who will<br />

participate, and wish to extend a special<br />

welcome to our international choir from<br />

Estonia.<br />

The world class adjudicators for this event<br />

come from across the globe:<br />

Professor Jan Schumacher, Germany; Professor<br />

Maria Guinand, Venezuela; and Dr.<br />

Ronald Staheli, USA, together with an excellent<br />

guest conductor, Fred Sjöberg, Sweden.<br />

We welcome them to our campus and<br />

express our appreciation for the contributions<br />

they will make to the festival.<br />

I would like to express appreciation to the<br />

organizers, coordinators, and all of the participants<br />

for their hard work in staging this<br />

wonderful event. And to each of the choirs<br />

who have prepared to participate, I wish<br />

you a wonderful experience, one that you<br />

will cherish for the music performed, the artistry<br />

shared, and the new friendships that<br />

will develop.<br />

Sincerely,<br />

Kirt Saville, Director<br />
