The idea of creating an IFCM Youth Committee came after a successful program for young choral and cultural managers at the World Choral EXPO in 2022. Noticing the interest of these young participants for IFCM and recognizing the benefits that IFCM could gain from their feedback and vision, the IFCM Board of Directors decided to establish a YOUNG IFCM - youth committee. A call for YOUNG IFCM for the term 2023-2026 was launched in May/June. IFCM received 24 applicants from all over the world. The selection was a real challenge as all applicants showed exceptional talent, leadership skills, and a true passion for choral music. We are happy to present the very first YOUNG IFCM members: 

  • Anne Charlotte P. Copiaco, Philippines — Asia (Central, East and South)
  • Pelin Küçükerdoğan, Türkiye — Central-Eastern & South-Eastern Europe
  • Sofia Torres, Chile — Latin America and Caribbean
  • Reece Windjack, USA — North America
  • Stephen Carroll, Ireland — Northern & Western Europe and Israel region
  • Sam Nicholson, New Zealand — Oceania

Welcome to all. We are looking forward to the next three years of these YOUNG IFCM members leading IFCM to another level.
