Then you are ready to apply for the 2020 World Youth Choir!
In July and August 2020, the World Youth Choir will have a special session in the frame of the festivities for the Beethoven 250th Birthday Anniversary Year. Joining the National Youth Orchestra of Germany (Bundesjugendorchester), the 2020 WYC programme will be Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 and a commissioned work by Tan Dun entitled Nine.
The European Choral Association – Europa Cantat (ECA-ED), one of the patrons of the World Youth Choir, will be organizing a special European Youth Choir for the final concert of the Beethoven Anniversary year 2020 on December 17, 2020. The choir will also perform Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the West-Eastern Divan Ensemble conducted by Daniel Barenboim. In addition, they will perform a short a cappella programme directed by Simon Halsey (UK), who will also prepare the choir.
