Came from a beautiful island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, Gema Sangkakala was founded in 1987 by a well-known voice teacher, Wenny F.O. Pantouw. Since its establishment, GS choir has trained and recruited about 500 singers. Current team consists of 33 trained vocals, performing secular and sacred music and other challenging works.
The word 'gema' in Indonesian means echo, while 'sangkakala' equals to a trumpet-like instrument with reverberating sound. Stay true to its name, the choir gives powerhouse performance with high level of creativity and quality, landing them a spot at number 74 on Musica Mundi World Top 1000 choirs. With that world-class acclamation, Gema Sangkakala has proudly become one of Indonesia's finest choral ensembles.
GS choir has competed nationally and internationally, taking many medals under their belt. Winning the first place at Choir Olympics III in Bremen, Germany, 2004; the team also took home 2 gold medals from performing at the 6th International Competition Secular and Sacred Music in Riva del Garda, Italy, 2005. Adding to their medal collections, they took not only one, but three silver medals from respective categories at World Choir Games IV in Xiamen, China, 2006.
Due to their outstanding accomplishments, GS choir has been invited to perform in many events in Indonesia as well as across the Europe. The mission of the choir is to channel musical interest and vocal talent of the young generation in North Sulawesi, Indonesia. Their success story has made them a role model for local choirs, which often time look up to them for their exceptional management and development.
