FICFE’s International Festival of Female Choirs in Latin America (Festival Internacional de Coros Femeninos en Latinoamérica) evolves from the interest in music originally composed for female voices and the need to make their presence visible in the artistic and Latin American cultural field.
An independent cultural project, the festival’s objective is to generate and consolidate a space for meeting and exchange between choral groups formed by women from Latin America and the world, sharing different repertoires, projects, and cultural experiences throughout concerts, conferences, and workshops presented by renowned figures from the international choral field.
FICFE is held every two years in different Latin American countries. Its first edition was in 2019 in Puerto Madryn, Chubut province, Argentina. The second edition will take place in San Pedro Tlaquepaque, Jalisco, Mexico, 19-24 November 2023. The interpretation workshops will be held by Marjukka Riihimähki (Finland), Patricia Morales and Gabriela Franco (Mexico).
FICFE also has a Composition Contest which alternates with the festival project.
