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) and Colombia (2013). The next festival (America Cantat VIII) will happen in 2016 in Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas.
The same concept was also created in the Asia Pacific region. The first Asia Pacific Cantat took place in Taiwan in 2007.
An Africa Cantat is in preparation in DR Congo. It will be organized In Kinshasa on 6-12 August 2017. More infos HERE
