Each four years, thanks to AAMCANT (an Argentine choral association, member of IFCM and initiator of the project), and the collaboration of the International Federation for Choral Music, an American country is honoured to invite all the choral conductors and singers of the world to participate in the América Cantat Choral Festival and discover the American choral music.

During one week, renowned choirs of local and international prestige are engaged in artistic and academic activities, meeting colleagues and building and exchanging friendship. In each edition of this festival, several workshops and study-tours take place under world renowned conductors and composers.

America Cantat took place in Argentina (1992 and 1996), Venezuela (2000), Mexico (2004), Cuba (2007), Brazil (2010), Colombia (2013), Paradise Island, Bahamas (2016).
