Youth Committee until 2012


In November 2002 the Board of the European Choral Association - Europa Cantat decided to form a Youth Committee in order to improve the participation of young people in the work of the federation. An idea which had been promoted by the European Parliament of Young Musicians founded in 1994.


The Youth Committee was established to support the board of the 
European Choral Association – Europa Cantat (ECA-EC) in matters 
concerning youth involvement and aims to improve a greater demographic 
diversity throughout the European Choral Association – Europa Cantat. 
We would like to involve young people, and avoid ECA-EC to become a 
"grey-haired organisation" as well as provide a platform to learn. 
The education of future boardmembers, leaders and managers for the 
cultural sector are 
among our main goals. 
We are an advisory body to the organisation and aim to combine the 
general strategies of ECA-EC with youth at the forefront of our 
priorities. Our most important aims are communication with young 
singers throughout Europe, to spread the Ideas of ECA-EC 
and together develop new policies for young choral friends all over 
Europe. We involve up to date technologies and channels of 
communication to be successful on this mission and create a network of 
young people interested in choral music. 
Additionally, the development of our own projects, enhancing youth 
involvement in the ECA-EC organisation and fostering the intercultural 
exchange among young singers throughout Europe if of strong interest 
for us.
