The European Choral Association – Europa Cantat is launching an International Fundraising Campaign to support its projects and activities in the field of education, cultural development and choral networking.
Of course, all friends of choral music can contribute through direct donations, but the aim of the campaign is to involve choirs to set-up fundraising concerts and events. Beyond the financial dimension and the fun factor for the singers involved, such events contribute to raise the awareness on the European dimension of collective singing among the general audience.
You can find more detail and take part to this effort under www.choralfriends.eu

They are both people who think a great deal about conducting and teaching conducting. Fortunately, both accepted the invitation and will be joining Mr. Turunen in planning and realizing the workshop for conductors at […]
