Tallinn 29 June – 1 July 2022

Our next conference will focus on ‘belonging’ in all senses of the word. How does a choir belong to the community it is part of? How does a singer or a conductor belong in a choir? What does it take for new singers and conductors to feel they belong? How does a music organisation create an environment where all its supporters feel welcome?


The conference will start with a lunch on Wednesday 29 June, followed by the opening session. It continues on Thursday 30 June, with more sessions and the 40th anniversary concert of the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir.
