IFCM is the proud collaborator of a global initiative connected to the 2018 celebration of the World Choral Day (http://worldchoralday.org/). As a commemoration of the end of World War I (WWI), IFCM and Fundación Aequalis invite all singers from all over the world to be a part of the VoxPopuli Virtual Choir; which will perform the winning composition of the 2018 “Concurso Internacional de Composición Coral Alberto Grau” (“Alberto Grau” International Choral Composition Competition, https://www.ciccag.org/en/ ) entitled “Nada Te Turbe” by Carlos Alberto Cordero.
This composition has three sections. As a statement of remembrance, the middle section will be performed by ensembles from the countries that suffered the biggest losses during WWI: Austria, France, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Russia, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. Ensembles invited to perform this section will be selected by IFCM and its network. Choirs belonging to these countries, who wish to be considered will find more information at https://www.ciccag.org/en/virtual-choir-voxpopuli/.
As a statement of global peace and unity, the first and last sections of this composition will be performed by individual singers from all around the world. Singers interested in participating in this global event will need to submit individual recordings by October 7th, 2018. For more information, please visit https://www.ciccag.org/en/virtual-choir-voxpopuli/.
The resulting composite of all recordings will be compiled by Fundación Aequalis and a final video will be produced. This video will be released on December 7th in connection with the celebration of the World Choral Day. This video will be globally distributed through social media and individual websites.
