KAWASAKI, KANGAWA, JAPAN, Sept. 23, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Do you have what it takes to be a champion and blow away the competition? Musical whistlers from around the world will gather in Japan at the World Whistlers Convention (WWC) to find out if they have what it takes to become a champion whistler. Additionally, this year’s event is produced for the first time in partnership with the three major international musical whistling organizations to promote the unsung art, power and beauty of musical whistling globally.

The Whistle Convention kicks off October 6 at the Kawasaki City International Center Event Hall with their first hybrid event, a concert that includes live and online performances, and allows access for music enthusiasts around the world. The festivities also include a hybrid symposium and a three-day live musical whistle competition to spotlight some of the world’s most accomplished classical and pop whistlers, and ultimately crown the best.

Despite the challenges of international travel, WWC has decided that “the show will go on” and will celebrate the art of whistling again this fall. This year’s convention is truly expansive, incorporating satellite events produced by the International Whistlers Guild, responsible for the Global Whistlers Convention – the only international online musical whistling competition, and the planned Masters of Musical Whistling International Festival and Competition. for Fall 2023 in Hollywood, CA.

The opening concert, “Whistling Connections,” on Thursday, October 6, 2022 at 7:00 p.m., features world champion whistlers from around the world – virtually and on stage with live accompaniment. Ticket holders can attend in person, watch the live stream, or view for a short time after the event. This unique opportunity to hear a world-class whistle promises to be a truly breathtaking experience. As a bonus, there will be a special screening of a documentary about the first international whistle competition at the Carson City Whistle Off.

Friday’s symposium will appeal to fans of whistling and history – presenters include a whistling expert from the Canary Islands, a former record producer from Warner Music Japan, and contemporary artists from Scotland and Slovenia. Both the concert and symposium are available for in-person and online participation. Tickets are available by emailing [email protected], advance purchase is highly recommended.

The main event is a three-day competition featuring popular and classic categories over multiple rounds.

The contest runs from Friday October 7 to Sunday October 9 and admission is free to the public. For more information about the contest and the WWC, see www.whistling.jp/en/.
