The International Federation for Choral Music IFCM is endorsing the statement of one of its founding organizations in Europe, the European Choral Association, as we stand in solidarity with the victims of the war in Ukraine.
As an organization founded 40 years ago to facilitate communication and exchange between choral musicians throughout the world, we are worried about the long-term effects of the war for the entire world and the threats it means to our rights.
We stand behind the act of support undertaken by the European Choral Association and our members in Europe.
"The act of singing together is in stark contrast to war. As an international singing community, we emphasize singing’s ability to unify, demonstrate defiance and bring comfort."
Official magazine of the International Federation for Choral Music, the International Choral Magazine is published quarterly in the four official languages of IFCM: English, French, German and Spanish. It is distributed in more than 80 countries on the five continents and is the official voice of choral music around the world.Read more
