Published: Oct 31,2023

In alignment with the strategic vision set at World Symposium on Choral Music Istanbul 2023 (WSCMIstanbul2023) to position Türkiye as one of the pivotal choral hubs in the world, a resplendent Choral Marathon was organized by Choral Culture Association and hosted by Nilufer Municipality in Bursa. This grand event saw the participation of over 30 choirs and an assembly of nearly 1,000 choristers hailing from various corners of Türkiye.

At the culmination of the Marathon, the Vice-President of the International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM), Burak Onur Erdem, bestowed a two-year membership upon the Marathon's organizing committee members as a token of appreciation. These sponsored memberships are part of the IFCM program "Creating Futures in Choral Music".
