EuroChoir 2018 – Culture Cauldron

EuroChoir is a unique choral event organised by the European Choral Association – Europa Cantat every year in a different country. Initiated by AGEC in 1982.

This special choir project aims to promote European choral music among young singers and to encourage cultural exchange within Europe.

EuroChoir 2018 offers the opportunity to 60 young singers between 18 and 30 to get together for 9 days to rehearse a challenging programme with two renowned conductors, improve their vocal skills and present the results of their work in public concerts.

The conductors of this edition will be Maria van Nieukerken (NL) and Mikko Sidoroff (FI).

The EuroChoir 2018 will take place in Finland and Estonia, and it is part of the EU-funded “Sing Outside the Box” project. The singers will perform in Helsinki before joining the EUROPA CANTAT XX festival in Tallinn for the final concerts.
