During one week, renowned choirs of local and international prestige are engaged in artistic and academic activities, meeting colleagues and building and exchanging friendship. In each edition of this festival, several workshops and study-tours take place under world renowned conductors and composers.
America Cantat took place in Argentina (1992 and 1996), Venezuela (2000), Mexico (2004), Cuba (2007), Brazil (2010) and Colombia (2013). The next festival (America Cantat VIII) will happen in 2016.
The same concept was also created in the Asia Pacific region. The first Asia Pacific Cantat took place in Taiwan in 2007.
