24 Amazing Choirs are Travelling to NZ...But why? 

The New Zealand Choral Federation and IFCM are extremely excited to be immersed in the inspiring choral offerings from each of the 24 international choirs featuring at the 12th World Symposium on Choral Music (WSCM2020). But what about the choristers? What are they most excited about when it comes to showcasing their choir at an event like this?
The good news is that they have satisfied our curiosity by sharing the things they are most looking forward to!
Here are ten top reasons the Symposium choirs are delighted to be on board:

  • MEETING new friends and reuniting with old ones
  • MAKING music and memories together
  • LEARNING other methodologies and approaches to choral singing
  • HEARING incredible music from around the world
  • SHARING music and passion with international audiences
  • HARNESSING the inspiration that this cultural exchange will bring
  • DISCOVERING the music and culture that matters most to the people of NZ
  • CONNECTING and singing with incredible choirs from all over the world
  • REVELLING in learning from others with diverse backgrounds and cultures
  • EXPERIENCING the beauty of Aotearoa as a choir

It sure sounds like the trip of a lifetime! You too can experience the magic above by registering online at www.wscm2020/register

Earlybird registrations are available until end of July(and IFCM members get special discounts), so why wait any longer?
