This past July the First International Choral Festival in Guatemala took place in Guatemala City. As part of this festival, IFCM's project Conductors Without Borders (CWB) had its first workshop in Latin America with wonderful success. This festival was organized by the Guatemalan organization "Proyecto Corodemia" and their leaders Fernando Archila and Julio Edgar Julián, in connection with CWB's coordinator for the Northern Region, Ana Patricia Carbajal, and guest clinicians Maibel Troia (Venezuela) and Susie Wilson (Costa Rica).
More information can be found at http://www.corodemia.com/festival-int-2018.html. You can also read the final report (in Spanish) HERE. Through this project, the Federation aims to help with the technical education of choral leaders in all regions of the world and create a sustained effort to develop and strengthen the choral field globally. We are happy to see this first important effort in Central America, which will soon be followed by workshops in other parts of Latin America.
If you want to have your region/country be considered to be a part of this global effort through the CWB project, please contact IFCM directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
