Building on the long-standing partnership between IFCM and Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) and the European Choral Association – Europa Cantat as the founding patrons of the World Youth, JMI recently invited IFCM to participate in its 2020 World Music Day Pop-up Festival (June 20-21).
Traditionally Fête de la Musique / World Music Day focuses on bringing music out onto the streets and making it accessible to the public.
In response to the physical restrictions necessitated by the global pandemic, this year the JMI World Music Day Pop-up Festival/Conference was presented as a virtual exhibition space during which IFCM presented some of its projects.
The festival also included various other activities such as live performances of youth musicians from around the world, roundtable discussions, workshops and training sessions with practitioners and specialists from the cultural sector, online music practice, and more. Our deepest thanks to JMI for this opportunity!
