World Choir Games
When singers from around the world converged on Shaoxing, China, in July 2010, they not only enjoyed two weeks of competition and camaraderie, they also got a glimpse of what would come when the World Choir Games traveled to Cincinnati in 2012. MPG worked with the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau to create and produce a Broadway-caliber show introducing World Choir Games participants to Cincinnati and the legacy of American Music.
MPG crafted “The American Dream: A Musical Journey” with world-class writers, musicians, performers, choreographers and designers. From Gospel to Jazz, Country to Motown, the hour-long, multimedia show was a true celebration of the impact American music has had on music worldwide. The sold-out audience of more than 12,000 greeted the show by singing along, waving the American flag and rewarding our cast with a massive standing ovation.
City leaders were so impressed with “The American Dream” and its potential impact on attendance for the 2012 games that they awarded MPG a Spirit of Cincinnati Partnership Award.
