INTERKULTUR World Rankings

as of November 2017

[will be updated several times a year]

All INTERKULTUR competitions have been carried out according to the MUSICA MUNDI quality seal.

This makes possible an impressive overall comparison of all choirs that have participated.

The INTERKULTUR World Rankings has retroactive effect back to the year 2000.

Based upon this World Rankings, individual lists are then made which reflect the situation in the various categories.
