2017 is the year of the 11th World Symposium on Choral Music that will be held in Barcelona, from 22nd to 29th July. Barcelona is a modern cosmopolitan European city that has every tourist attraction you can imagine, where strolling around the city lets you discover its own history and its very own beaches.
Barcelona is also a cultural city where choral music is a very important ingredient, with hundreds of choirs coming from very diverse spheres and with a wide range of styles.
We are working together with the International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM) so that the 11th International Symposium of Choral Music will be an unforgettable event. The Symposium has as its slogan: “The Colours of Peace”. The colours symbolise the diversity of international choral life in the building of a world at peace. The Symposium wants to give you a new opportunity for this noble goal
