World Choir Council

The World Choir Council is the highest international advisory board of INTERKULTUR and confers with INTERKULTUR basically on artistic matters. In order to represent the worldwide choir community, we aim for the participation of at least one renowned representative from each choral country of the world. 80 nations are already represented in the Council. The representatives meet regularly every two years during the World Choir Games and report on the choral scene in their respective country. They discuss jointly urgent matters in the choral world. Between the meetings they communicate through a monthly news letter, “Council Talk”.

For INTERKULTUR the Council members are moreover contact persons to the choir community of their country and support us by spreading information about the INTERKULTUR activities through their own networks.
