12th World Symposium on Choral Music WSCM2020, 11-18 July 2020

Applications are now open for Choirs and Presenters at the 12th World Symposium on Choral Music.
In 2020, the Symposium sails to the Pacific paradise of New Zealand, and for a week in July the vibrant cosmopolitan city of Auckland becomes the choral capital of the world. Gateway to a stunningly beautiful country, with its almost infinite variety of dramatic landscapes and experiences, Auckland is also home to a multicultural blend of Māori, Europeans, Pacific Islanders, Asians and many others… and to the dynamic mix of music they enjoy and share. Over a thousand people at the last Symposium said they’d always wanted to come to New Zealand. WSCM2020 gives you the perfect excuse!
