Regional Development

Singing can be a great unifier by bringing people together and demonstrating our shared humanity. One of the objectives of the European Choral Association for the period 2022-20024 is therefore to connect with countries and regions with which the European Choral Association has lost touch, has little or no contact, less knowledge of their choral or collective singing landscape and/or for which no data on collective singing is available in the Singing Europe study (Central-Eastern and South-Eastern Europe).

The target countries of our regional development strategy are:

Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus (no activities in the near future, but long-term planning possible), Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Georgia, Greece, Kosovo, Malta, Moldova, Montenegro, Poland, Republic of North Macedonia, Romania, Russia (no activities in the near future, but long-term planning possible), Serbia, Slovakia, Ukraine (no activities in the near future, but long-term planning possible).

Our wish is that cooperation between the European Choral Association and target countries would enable intercultural exchange, knowledge sharing, networking and will bring mutual benefits.
