TYPES OF WYC SESSIONS
Whilst the singers, conductors and locations change annually, the spirit of the WYC always stays intact: and that is one of intercultural understanding, high-level musicianship and international friendship. To date, the World Youth Choir has over 1000 alumni singers from 75 different countries and has performed over 300 concerts in 37 different countries. It is a phenomenal educational, artistic and social programme that contributes to the raising of new generations of “Global Citizens” and greatly impacts the lives of young singers as well as the audiences they outreach.
This unique global ensemble is made possible through its founders and patrons: the European Choral Association - Europa Cantat, the International Federation for Choral Music and JM International. Together they guide the WYC Foundation that aims to inspire many more generations of singers through the spirit and music of the World Youth Choir.
