The IFCM World Choral EXPO is an event realizing the choral needs of the international choral community .It aims to provide an opportunity for choral singers, choral professionals, conductors, composers and music educators to interact and learn from world-renowned choirs and their conductors. The IFCM World Choral EXPO comprises of three major elements: 1) choral education, 2) choir performances and 3) an exhibition. The inaugural WCE took place in 2015 in Macau SAR, and brought together over 10,000 attendees with the common goal to sing ‘songs of friendship and peace’. The opportunity to work with such knowledgeable and high-profile choral personalities, to mix with like-minded choral musicians from around the world, and to share and hear some of the finest choral singing on the planet is a rare and powerful event for the worldwide choral community.
The 2019 theme of “Voices Meeting for a Better World” associated with the IFCM World Choral EXPO should encourage global friendships and world peace. Through the common love for choral music, participants, performers and sponsors should be able to come together seamlessly to make lifelong friendships and to inspire musicians, no matter how amateur or experienced.
