IFCM Opens a New Branch in Lisbon, Portugal
Published: May 27,2022

2022 is a significant year for IFCM. Not only is it the celebration year of our 40th anniversary, but we have also reached several critical milestones in terms of the administration of our Federation.

In 2019, with the help and generosity of IFCM President, Mme Emily Kuo Vong, IFCM opened a new office in the magnificent historical building Palacete dos Condes de Monte Real (Rua Buenos Aires 39) in the heart of Lisbon, Portugal. During the past three years, most of our archives have been moved to this new office. Our goal has been to have the archives sorted and put online for the celebration of IFCM’s 40th anniversary. We are delighted to announce that we have achieved this goal. Programs, books, recordings, membership records, lists of officers, and administration correspondence during the past 40 years are now sorted, adequately archived, and published online for future reference. We are happy that IFCM's history is now well preserved and available for future generations!

The second milestone fulfills our desire to have a legal headquarters in Europe. We are pleased to announce that IFCM has successfully opened a non-profit, legal branch of IFCM USA in Lisbon, Portugal. Having an IFCM branch within the European Union will be a huge benefit for all our European members and will allow our Federation to be more visible in Europe.

Please join us to celebrate these milestones and much more at the World Choral EXPO 2022 in Lisbon, Portugal in early September 2022.
