On 16 September 2020, the European Choral Association - Europa Cantat (ECA-EC) hosted an Online Reception for potential recruiters and supporters of the World Youth Choir (WYC), in cooperation with the World Youth Choir Foundation Board and session manager Inês Moreira. The reception was part of the multi-annual cooperation project EP:IC (Emerging Professional: Internationalisation of music Careers) coordinated by the ECA-EC and co-funded by the European Union Creative Europeprogramme. EP:IC provides emerging musicians with invaluable skills and professional experience that complement their formal training and can help boost their careers at the international level. Understanding that collective music making is a powerful tool to bring people and nations together, the EP:IC project aims to assess and verify the value and impact of auditioned youth music ensembles in the professionalisation and internationalisation of careers. It intends also to improve the training of emerging professionals and to foster the creation of new ensembles across Europe.
