What is Leading Voices?

Read more about the event here.

Why did I not hear of this event before?

Leading Voices is a brand new event by the European Choral Association based on input given by many conductors and vocal leaders from their network.

Can I travel with my choir to Utrecht in July 2022?

Yes, you can. You need to take care of travel and accomodation yourself.

I am a music teacher, what does Leading Voices offer me?

As a music teacher you can best filter the programme using the filter ‘music teacher’ or use the theme ‘unleash your potential as a teacher’ as a filter with the session leaders. If you’re still not sure when to be there, we recommend you to be at least on Saturday 30 July on the event as during this day a special focus will be given on singing with children in and outside schools.

Can my choir perform in Utrecht in July 2022?

Yes, limited timeslots are available for choirs to perform in the side programme. The side programme offers choir-to-choir concerts for choirs during lunch time and late afternoon. In this concept two choirs perform in the same timeslot of one hour, each choir performing a concert of 20 minutes. In autumn 2021 a form will be published to apply for these concerts.
