INTERKULTUR is proud to have gathered some of the most renowned choral experts of the United States to form an Honorary Committee. All of them are longstanding choral directors and endorse INTERKULTUR in bringing new events to the United States as well as encouraging US choirs to travel abroad. Some of them have been experiencing INTERKULTUR events as participants directing their choirs, as adjudicators in INTERKULTUR choral competitions or as advisors in the International Choir Council, a supporting committee featuring experts from more than 70 nations.
The Honorary Committee gives advice to INTERKULTUR and helps us to learn more about American choirs, their outstanding artistic performances and their preferences travelling in and outside America. They also help us encouraging choirs to participate and to let them know what’s different with INTERKULTUR competitions and why they are worth a try.
