Membership Opportunity
Creating Futures
IFCM Membership Campaign 2022
Are you a young (age 35 and under) conductor, singer, composer, manager, administrator, or choral music enthusiast?
Are you a conductor, singer, composer, manager, administrator, or choral music enthusiast (any age) living in a country with a Human Development Index 2 and 3 (see list here)?
If your response is YES to either of these questions and you want to be a part of a worldwide choral association, you can apply for sponsorship of an IFCM membership for two years by completing this PDF Form or this online form.
Background
Earlier in 2022, IFCM launched a membership campaign to make it possible for young choral lovers, under the age of 35, from around the world to become IFCM members for two years at no charge and with the same advantages of a paying membership. This campaign was successful thanks to the contribution of generous donors. Now, IFCM wants to do even more!
IFCM has decided to waive the age limit for ALL choral lovers from countries listed in Human Development Index 2 and 3 (see list here) and offer them a free two-year membership aswell.
For those who meet the criteria and are gifted IFCM memberships, we hope that you will enjoy this sponsorship and that, thanks to this two-year experience with IFCM, you will remain an IFCM member for many more years by renewing your own IFCM membership when such support is possible for you.
Please visit the official IFCM website for more information and registration.
