The Mediterranean Voices Conference

Within the administrative boundaries of Europe, there is a sea that we, the southern Europeans, call Mare Nostrum (Our Sea). This sea has historically been one of the most powerful areas in terms of commerce, exchange and culture. It is the cradle of the classical culture, the cradle of the European cultural identity.

The Mediterranean Voices Conference is organized by the Moviment Coral Catalá (Catalan Choral Umbrella Organization), the Mediterranean Office for Choral Singing, ECA-EC and IFCM, and will bring our VOICE beyond these administrative boundaries. We will discover the VOICE of this Mare Nostrum.

During four days, Girona, in Catalonia, will host musicians, musicologists, composers, conductors and choral singers from different countries from the northern and southern Mediterranean area. They will offer us an overview of the various vocal and choral traditions from both sides of the Mare Nostrum.

Thanks to a programme made up of seven concerts, documentary screenings, exhibitions, and more than twelve conferences, panels and workshops, visitors will enjoy the knowledge of being, thinking and singing of artists (composers, soloists, choirs and vocal groups) from more than ten countries.

Girona will thus become the VOICE City of Europe and beyond. Girona will be the city where one can measure the temperature of the planet’s most diverse and dynamic region; think about the political and cultural changes taking place in the northern rim of the Mediterranean due to the economic recession and on its southern shores after the Spring Revolutions. Moreover, think about the religious diversity and the long history of convergences and divergences between the different religions and cultures living in the same area.

Thanks to the Mediterranean Voices Conference, we will spread our VOICE. And thanks to other VOICES that have arrived from different places bathed by the Mare Nostrum, our VISION will grow and will be expanded and enriched. Are you going to miss the Mediterranean Voices Conference?
