Quo Vadis Choral Music

Design the Future of your Choral Community
New CHORALSPACE conference in collaboration with the Rundfunkchor Berlin
April 21 – 24, 2022 | Haus des Rundfunks | Berlin, Germany

What is the heartbeat of the choral music nowadays? And what about the audience? How can we reach more visibility? What is the perspective for choir festivals, music publishing and cultural sponsoring? And how do we react to that? What about inclusion and diversity in the choir communities? What role do education projects play in accessing choral music?

Scene meeting and open forum

The new CHORALSPACE conference QUO VADIS CHORAL MUSIC is intended as a meeting place for the choral industry and an open forum to contribute to a better understanding and promotion of current developments in the choir scene. In various panels and lectures, speakers and visitors will discuss the future of choral music. In addition, outstanding projects, event formats and concerts are presented. Projects that are changing the perception of choral music and designing the future of the international choral scene.

Collaboration with the Berlin Radio Choir

The Rundfunkchor Berlin (Berlin Radio Choir) has taken a leading role in creating new cross-genre projects in recent years and is therefore the ideal host for the first edition of the QUO VADIS Conference. The experience of this exceptional choir will be a booster for your own projects and ideas.

4 days for creative people

The conference addresses creative people leading and managing choirs and ensembles around the globe. During the four days of the conference, you will all connect and create new ideas and find your own answers to the question: QUO VADIS CHORAL MUSIC
 
Off to an exciting future!
Registration opens soon.
