Demands and Commitments for Equality and Diversity


Singing together is a universal right and a joy that should be open to all. The role of choral leadership is crucial: it creates artistic spaces where people can overcome both internal and external boundaries. Choral conductors promote interpersonal harmony and foster peace-building interaction among diverse life experiences. Singing under their guidance connects individuals, fosters understanding, gives people a sense of belonging, and creates valuable cultural heritage.

Our mission is to emphasize the invaluable contribution of choral conductors worldwide. While preserving the tradition of choral singing, we also strive to promote and expand the diversity of choral creation in all its facets.

Every choral conductor deserves full support and appreciation. Their dedication and vision – regardless of experience or style – are what make the world of choral singing so unique.
