World Symposium on Choral Music in Istanbul, 25-30 April 2023, Registration is Open!
Published: Nov 30,2022

While the upper hemisphere is getting ready for the winter, the WSCM 2023 team is working away to provide you with an event-packed, entertaining, educational, inspiring, and uplifting experience at the long-awaited WSCM 2023 in Istanbul. Registration is now open. You have until 1 January 2023 to register with the Early Bird fee. Masterclassapplicants need to act a little quicker as the deadline for application is 15 December 2022 (please see the website for details on masterclass application conditions).

It is highly recommended that you book your accommodations early, as spring is a popular time for Istanbul and you want to make sure you are in the perfect location to make the most of the symposium. The area where most events will be held is called Taksim, also referred to as Beyoglu. Nearby areas are Sishane (20-minute walk) and Sisli (30-minute walk or 10-minute using the underground metro - which has a major stop right under the WSCM 2023 main campus, the Atatürk Cultural Centre).

Before you know it, it will be spring in Istanbul, and it will be perfect weather, no matter which hemisphere you come from. The snow will have melted, and you will enjoy a city in bloom, which you will have a chance to explore between sessions, presentations, and concerts. We look forward to welcoming you to Istanbul!
