Would you like to make an impact in the choral world? Would you like to support musicians in different parts of the world? Would you like to be involved in shaping the future of choral music? Let IFCM help you help the future of choral music
In 2022, the International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM) celebrated its 40th Anniversary. During the past four decades, IFCM has aimed to facilitate communication and exchange amongst choral musicians worldwide through our Federation’s diverse projects. We have fulfilled our mission via the collective and collaborative work of our Board members, our Presidents, our partners, our member organizations, and, most importantly, our individual members. Since this anniversary year was significant for our Federation, we wanted to mark it by making IFCM more recognized and accessible throughout all regions of the world. At the same time, we want to support our loyal members as they nurture and develop choral music, and choral life in general, in their countries and regions. Therefore, we launched the project Creating Futures in Choral Music and, thanks to the generosity of donors, were able to give a free two-year membership to hundreds of young members under the age of 35, from around the world. This campaign was so successful that IFCM wanted to do more!
A review of our membership during the past decades indicates that most of our members are professional choral musicians coming from countries with a positive Human Development Index (HDI). Conductors, composers, singers, managers, and administrators from countries where the HDI is not so favorable sometimes find it difficult to invest in a membership. In response, IFCM waived the age limit of the program ‘Creating Futures in Choral Music and offered a two-year membership to ALL choral lovers from HDI 2 and 3 countries.
Your contribution is needed more than ever!
How can you get involved in this program?
New members will have access to all the benefits that IFCM membership provides. IFCM will work tirelessly to provide products and services that will make them want to remain IFCM members for many years to come.
If you reply yes to one of these questions, and you want to be a part of a worldwide choral association, you can apply for sponsorship of an IFCM membership for two years by filling this PDF form in English, formulaire en français, formulario en español, or filling the online form.
If you are selected, we hope that you will enjoy this sponsorship and that, thanks to this two-year experience with IFCM, you will remain an IFCM member for much more years by renewing your own IFCM membership when such support is possible for you.
