Covid-19 outbreak

How does the choral world deal with it?

Survey

It is important for us, as a European network, to have our ears “in the field” and hear from all of you involved in collective singing/choral music what impact the COVID-19 outbreak is having world-wide. In the past months, we have been conducting a survey to see how is the choral sector affected by the current virus outbreak.

The survey is still open to receive the responses of anyone active in the choral sector, from any country. Please share widely so we can hear as many voices from as many places as possible! You can also see the summary of the Survey on how the situation was until the beginning of June 2020. 

Ideas, Tools & Resources

The current worldwide Covid-19 crisis has disrupted the lives of people almost everywhere, and the choral world has also been affected heavily in most countries. However, the situation is not the same everywhere. We are closely following the developments and listening to the needs and wishes of the sector and trying to respond to questions that are reaching us. As a European association, one important role we can have is to find examples of good practice and spread them within our network to avoid that each national choral association / each conductor or choir manager has to start from scratch. Whatever we may write in this document and whatever your colleagues in other countries may be doing, you will have to follow the rules and regulations of your country or your regional/local government.

Share your updates, tools and resources with us! The document accepts comments and suggestions and we have also set up a Facebook post where you can add your inspiring stories, videos and online resources.

Activities of 2021 and beyond

With a heavy heart, we announce that almost all events of 2020 had to be rescheduled and adapted to the current world-crisis. You can find the digital version of the Brochure of Activities 2021 right below.
