20 years World Youth Choir

Launched as JMI initiative, the World Youth Choir recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Happy Birthday!

The next World Youth Choir Summer Session 2010 will be held between 5th July and 29th July, 2010 in Tenerife, Canary Islands. During this session two different programs will be performed:

  • an Academic program based on 20th Century choral music
  • a Contrasting program based on choral music of Mediterranean region

About 80 singers from more than 35 different cultures will participate in this event, half alumni half new singers. Because of the lot of work for the Anniversary Celebration project in Örebro, the recruitment procedure for new singers for the coming Summer Session was a bit delayed. So, young and talented singers between the age 17 and 26 years should hurry and not miss this opportunity of a lifetime and become a part of the World Youth Choir 2010. To participate, the candidates must be highly trained singers who usually study in the vocal or general music departments of Music Schools and Music Academies. Especially tenors are actually needed for Tenerife. Deadline is the 1st February 2010. More Information: here and here.
