Expanding and developing the World Choir Council

18 new members from all over the world are contributing with new expertise and experience

World Choir Council

The World Choir Council, as an important member in the INTERKULTUR family, is a well-known and very important part of the international choral world. It is the highest and voluntary international advisory body of INTERKULTUR, which is coming together virtually in Regional Meetings twice a year, and every two years directly on site at the World Choir Games in the General Conference of the World Choir Council. Further, the Council members are getting in contact regularly through workshops, (online) concerts and other activities throughout the year.

In 2022 INTERKULTUR and the World Choir Council are proud to present 18 new members from 18 countries for the World Choir Council. These new members will join the panel as musical ambassadors of their respective country and will be the voice of and for the choral scene in their homes. With the new members, the World Choir Council will richer in variety, more exciting and more effective in its future work.
