World Choral Day — A new Hymn by Alberto Grau for 2019
Published: Oct 31,2019

World Choral Day, a singing tradition since 1990, as already published in our previous eNews will happen again this year on the second Sunday of December (December 8, 2019) with the possibility to join with your choral events during the entire month of December.

We are thrilled to announce that Alberto Grau, the initiator of World Choral Day, has composed a new joyful song for this year's celebration that can be easily sung by any kind of choir or ensemble. We would like to invite and encourage you to sing this wonderful piece at your choral event. Download the sheet music and an mp3 recording of the song Cantando and enjoy being one of the thousands of voices from all around the world singing the same piece for the same cause.

How to join World Choral Day with your choral events?

Any choir and any choral concert can become part of the World Choral Day global chain. All you have to do is register your concert by completing a short inline form any time between now and the end of December 2019; it takes only 5 minutes. Please don't forget to download the proclamation which is available in 27 languages. This proclamation shall be announced at the beginning of every World Choral Day event. Your event(s) will be promoted through the World Choral Day website and IFCM’s social media platforms. Once your concert has taken place, please share with us your concert posters, photos and video recordings so that we can share them on our communication channels and make your event visible globally.

If you would you like to join a global choral event with your choir and share your love for choral singing with thousands of other choirs from all around the globe, then the World Choral Day is just for you!
