Youth Committee 2013-2015

In January 2013, the Board of the European Choral Association - Europa Cantat in cooperation with the the chair of the former Youth Committee constituted the new Youth Committee of the association for the years 2013 to 2015. Among a strong group of 18 candidates from 15 countries, the following young people were chosen for the youth committee of the coming years, based on the consideration of a good mix of ages, countries and regions in Europe, experience, connection to member organisations of ECA-EC and reach-out to young people in countries not so well-connected, yet:

Catherine Al-Ghabra (UK)

Jesse Boere (NL)

Flannery Ryan (DE)

Burak Onur Erdem (TR)

Iva Radulovic (RS)

Emanuela Farago (HU) for the festival in Pécs 2015

Eva Svarcova (CZ) for the Eurochoir

Two further candidates were put on the waiting list in case one of the current members drops out before 2015. Two former youth committee members who have in the meantime been elected to the ECA-EC Board are serving as mentors for the Youth Committee: Daphne Wassink (NL) and Victoria Liedbergius (NO). 

The first meeting of the new Youth Committee took place in Königswinter and Bonn, partly parallel to the first meeting of the new Board in February 2013. The 2nd official meeting took place in connection with the General Assembly in Pécs, Hungary in November 2013. Further meetings happened in 2014 in May at the EYE event in Strasbourg, in August at EUROPA CANTAT junior in Bergen, Norway and in November in Barcelona in connection with the VOICE conference.
