IFCM World Summit and 11th China International Choral Festival, July 15–21, 2012

The World Choral Summit is a unique initiative that will bring together thirty choral leaders from throughout the world. The Summit, a joint project under the sponsorship of IFCM, the China Chorus Association, China Entertainment and Arts Group, and China Cultural International Tours Inc, will be held simultaneously with the 11th China International Choral Festival.

Five choirs, each from a different continent, as well as many choirs from throughout the world, will join with their Chinese counterparts to participate in the Summit and Festival. The focus of the Summit will be on ideas, concerns, and ways to enhance communication and cooperation within the global community, as well as the exploration of choral traditions . . . especially those of China.

Appropriately, the theme will be Voices in Harmony. The host city of Beijing offers an ideal setting for choral leaders and choirs to experience the hospitality and rich cultural tradition of the Peoples Republic of China. The Summit and Festival will be events not to be missed!
