International activities for choirs and conductors

Are you planning the next trips of your choir and looking for interesting festivals and competitions? Do you like the “Cantat” idea and would love to join another Cantat festival in the coming years? Do you need orientation in the “jungle” of choral festivals and competitions? Are you looking for a big international event for conductors? Conductors and managers as well as representatives of choral organizations will receive useful information in this session presenting the next Europa Cantat, America Cantat and Africa Cantat Festivals, the Choralies, Zimriya and Nordklang, the World Symposium 2020, the member festivals of the Choral Festival Network and many more events and useful websites in Europe and beyond.
