Update on the International Choral Magazine
Published: Mar 29,2024

With the development of communication technology, more and more traditional publications are trying out digital forms. IFCM is concerned with protecting the environment and nature, treating it with a significance equal to choral music and education in the world. We have therefore decided to publish the April issue of our International Choral Magazine only online. This attempt is a result of ongoing strategic developments within IFCM and our faith in maintaining the quality and integrity of the International Choral Magazine. We would like to provide more for the younger generation and adapt in a world where how we receive information is changing.

Therefore, we will undergo a period of transition from traditional printing to a more innovative form of online reading. We appreciate all our friends’ continued support for IFCM and the International Choral Magazine, as well as your understanding and patience during this transitional period. In the meantime, we will continue to welcome all ideas and proposals for items and subjects that you would like to see in the magazine.

As part of these developments, the International Choral Magazine is launching its new website which features all recent publications. In April 2022, the name of IFCM’s publication was changed from International Choral Bulletin (ICB) to International Choral Magazine (ICM). It was only natural for IFCM to create a new website that reflects the updated name and current trends. As with the ICB website, the new ICM website is accessible to both IFCM members and non-members, allowing the entire choral community worldwide to benefit from the interesting articles published in the magazine. Access to past issues of the ICM/ICB (from 2003 on) is available on the IFCM website.
