“Voices Meeting for a Better World”

The IFCM World Choral EXPO aims to provide an opportunity for choral singers, choral professionals, conductors, composers and music educators to interact with and learn from world-renowned choirs and their conductors.

The 2019 theme – Voices Meeting for a Better World – encourages global friendship, cultural understanding, and world peace.

With a common love for choral music, performers, participants, exhibitors and sponsors will gather to make lifelong friendships and to inspire musicians, regardless of technical level.

The EXPO will take place in Lisbon, Portugal, July 27-August 1, 2019.

The EXPO will feature numerous concerts throughout Lisbon and its surrounding cities, presented by participant choirs and leading choral ensembles of the highest quality from different continents. One of the gala concerts, the Colorful Voices Program, will be dedicated to the music of children and youth choirs with an extraordinary variety of artistic proposals, presenting young artists performing at the highest level.

Participating choirs and individuals may choose to work with and/or observe international choral experts.
