European Choral Association – Europa Cantat

The European Union chooses VOICE as "Success story"

The European Cooperation project "VOICE - Vision on Innovation for Choral Music in Europe" has been selected by the European Commission as a "Success Story":

"Success stories" are finalised projects that have distinguished themselves by their impact, contribution to policy-making, innovative results and/or creative approach and can be a source of inspiration for others. The choice of [the] project as a success story was made on the basis of a selection process according to rigorous criteria regarding the quality, relevance and results of [the] project.

But it is first and foremost a recognition of the importance of the choral field in Europe (37 million singers, according to our Singing Europe study) and of its ability to cooperate and develop innovative approaches..

It will likely contribute to a renewed awareness of the role of collective singing in building a European space based on fundamental human values such as inter cultural exchange, sharing artistic excellence, direct participation to artistic activities and musical education. These are of course great news for the European Choral Association ! Europa Cantat and the 14 partners involved in the project.
