Haere mai!   Welcome! 

The New Zealand Choral Federation invites you to the 12th World Symposium on Choral Music
Auckland, New Zealand
July 11 – 18, 2020

Once every three years the world’s premier festival of choirs is held in a major city around the world. The World Symposium on Choral Music is the peak global event of the International Federation for Choral Music – its own “Olympics” and world congress rolled into one. Drawing together the leading choirs, conductors, composers and administrators from all over the planet for a superlative experience of concerts, seminars and workshops, the Symposium has also come to be a public showcase for the best the choral world has to offer.

And for just the third time ever, the WSCM will be held in the Southern Hemisphere, right next door in New Zealand!

Recharge yourself, meet your fellow choral practitioners, hear and learn and experience new viewpoints and approaches and the work of some of the best choirs in the world...

At WSCM2020 you can hear around 24 of the world’s finest choirs and over 30 distinguished choral practitioners in an eight-day ‘feast’ of concerts, seminars, masterclasses, workshops, demonstrations and exhibitions. Surrounded by all that musical splendour and choral wisdom, you will realise you don’t work in isolation but are part of an exciting global movement. You’ll learn what’s ‘trending’ and return home full of inspiration and new ideas.

Register at, follow us on Facebook @wscm2020 and start planning the trip of a lifetime!
