EuroChoir is a unique choral event organized by the European Choral Association – Europa Cantat in cooperation with a local partner every year in a different country. Initiated by AGEC in 1982, EuroChoir offers the opportunity to 60 young singers to get together for 8 days to rehearse a challenging program with two renowned conductors (who this year will be Maria van Nieukerken and Mikko Sidoroff), improve their vocal skills with a vocal trainer and present the results of their work in public concerts. This special choir project aims to promote European choral music among young singers and to encourage cultural exchange within Europe. This year the dates are from 19th July till 1st August with the session being held in Finland and Estonia.
