Call for expressions of interest for countries, regions, and/or cities to host the WSCM 2026

IFCM welcomes expressions of interest to host the World Symposium on Choral Music to be held in 2026. National organizations, institutions, or consortia interested in hosting the WSCM 2026 should submit a document (.doc, .docx or .pdf) by 28 February 2023, including the following details:

  • Name of organization/institution
  • Mailing address of organization/institution
  • Website of organization/institution
  • Full name of primary contact person
  • Email address of primary contact person
  • Brief description regarding previous experience the organization/institution has in hosting choral events
  • Brief description regarding the available infrastructure (buildings, rooms, spaces).

Because planning such events years in advance and securing them with the necessary funds has become more challenging in the recent years, your submission does not need to provide detailed numbers and facts. At the same time, it should include realistic funding expectations.

Please send your submission to office@ifcm.net before 28 February 2023.

Your submission will be reviewed by the IFCM Board of Directors. Finalists will be able to meet the Board during the WSCM 2023 in Istanbul or after the event at the most convenient location for a deeper evaluation of the WSCM 2026 proposal.
