The EuroChoir is organised each year in a different country in Europe. It is a project choir with 50 singers aged 18-30 from all over Europe. EuroChoir is a concept of the European Choral Association - Europa Cantat (ECA-EC).
The EuroChoirs 2016, 2017, 2018 are a joint venture by three organisations. In 2016 the EuroChoir was organised by Feniarco (IT), in 2017 by ZIMIHC (NL) and 2018 by Sulalsol (FI).
Conductors for these EuroChoirs are:
2016: Mikko Sidoroff (FI) & Lorenzo Donati (IT)
2017: Lorenzo Donati (IT) & Maria van Nieukerken (NL)
2018: Maria van Nieukerken (NL) & Mikko Sidoroff (FI)
EuroChoir is an activity in partnership with ECA-EC. Therefore the selection of singers will mirror the choral community in Europe and related communities of ECA-EC.
