Published: Sep 20,2019

IFCM is collaborating with partners in China on a set of international choral festivals in July and August 2020 and is calling for high-level choirs interested in being featured in one, two, or even all three of these festivals:

 

For each festival, invited choirs will have local transportation, food, and accommodation covered by the local organizers!

 

If you are interested in participating in the selection for any of these festivals, please send the following materials to office@ifcm.net before November 15, 2019: motivation letter, CV of the choir and conductor, pictures, contact details, links to recordings and the name of the festival(s) you are applying for.

 

If a choir applies and is invited to more than one festival:

While their international travel expenses to the designated airport of the festival will be their responsibility, the choirs who apply and are invited to more than one festival will benefit from the following travel conditions between festivals:

  • Choirs invited to the CICF and the Kaili Festival will have their trip from Beijing to Kaili and back to Beijing covered by the organizers in Kaili. These choirs will have to cover their trip from home to Beijing and back.
  • Choirs invited to the Kaili and the Hohhot Festivals will have their trip from Kaili to Hohhot and back covered by both organizers in Kaili and Hohhot. These choirs will have to cover their trip from home to Kaili and back.
  • Choirs invited to the CICF, the Kaili and the Hohhot Festivals will have their transportation between the three cities covered by the local organisers as followed:
    • Beijing-Kaili (covered by Kaili)
    • Kaili-Hohhot (costs shared by Kaili and Hohhot)
    • Hohhot-Beijing (covered by Hohhot)

These choirs will have to cover their trip from home to Beijing and back.

 

For choirs who applied and are invited to only one festival, the international travel expenses to the designated airport of this festival will be their own responsibility.
