The European Choral Association is a member of the European and International Music Council (IMC) and subscribes to the Five Music Rights developed by them. The 5th right is the right for all musical artists “to obtain just recognition and fair remuneration for their work”. This right has often not fully been respected in the choral sector in the past.

The European Choral Association therefore decided to research what could be “fair pay” for choral conductors and vocal leaders working at international events, as conductors of auditioned international ensembles, as workshop leaders, masterclass leaders or lecturers, as well as for composers who are commissioned a choral work.

These recommendations are the result of this work and were partly applied for the first time at the event Leading Voices in Utrecht, The Netherlands.
