“We are delighted to have Procter & Gamble as the first Presenting Sponsor of the World Choir Games in 2012. This is the first time in the history of international choral music that a global player has provided this kind of support for a world choral event. The enthusiastic commitment of P&G speaks highly of the company’s interest in premiere events that promote diversity and cultural awareness.

With P&G, we have found an important and global partner that will help promote the popularity of choral singing and the notion that singing together brings nations together. We thank P&G for sharing this vision with us and for their tremendous support.”
