Announcement of the 11th World Symposium on Choral Music

By on the 18 Apr 2014

IFCM is excited to announce that the World Symposium on Choral Music in 2017 has been awarded to…… Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain.

Every three years choral conductors, performers, teachers, presenters and enthusiasts from around the globe gather for the IFCM WORLD SYMPOSIUM ON CHORAL MUSIC in a different city on a different continent. Between July 22 and 29, 2017, Barcelona will celebrate to the sounds of the very best selected choirs, and members from all walks of the world’s choral community will join in, in full voice.

To bring such an important event to life the International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM), the Federació Catalana d’Entitats Corals (FCEC), the Barcelona City Council and Catalan Government will work together to ensure that the choral world will remember Barcelona as one of the most memorable World Symposiums on Choral Music ever.

With the backdrop of a city that boasts the astonishing beauty and sinewy architecture of Antoni Gaudi, and with such magnificent performance venues including L'Auditori (that will host the symposium) and the Palau de la Musica, a World Symposium on Choral Music in Barcelona will surely be one of those choral highlights that last a life-time. Preparations are already underway to bring this extraordinary and unique music event to life in one of the world’s most colourful and cosmopolitan cities.
