12th World Symposium on Choral Music (WSCM2020), 11-18 July 2020, Auckland, New Zealand
Published: Nov 26,2018

Invitations have now gone out to the selected choirs and presenters for WSCM2020 and we are enjoying the excited responses and the process now of creating the official Symposium programme.

We received 179 choir entries and 181 presenter applications from 44 countries, substantially more than any previous Symposium. This of course augurs well for the success of the event but it has meant that very many fine – and often world-class – choirs and presenters could not be chosen. The level was so high, in fact, that we could have filled the rosters of at least two more Symposia without any appreciable loss in quality. We are immensely grateful to all those who went to the effort of applying and hope we will be able to welcome many of you to Auckland to enjoy the Symposium.

Look for the opening of registrations in late February and be sure to catch the super-earlybird prices.

Meanwhile, preparations are underway for a joint IFCM/WSCM2020 presence at the ACDA convention in February. Registrations will be taken at ACDA and there’ll be a special offer for those who sign-up in Kansas City. The official WSCM2020 Travel partner, Tour Time, will also be on site and able to help with travel planning to New Zealand in July, 2020. Come and see us at our booths : IFCM – 247, WSCM – 245, and Tour Time – 144

Look forward to seeing many of you there!
