SONGBRIDGE

Songbridge is a non-competitive forum for international co-operation between children's / youth choirs and contemporary composers developed by professor Erkki Pohjola, Finland.

The original concept was named Songbridge 2000, as part of UNESCO’s programme Music and Peace 2000-2001. Three most important choral events, World Symposium on Choral Music (Rotterdam 1999), America Cantat (Caracas 2000) and Europa Cantat (Nevers 2000) Included Songbridge in their programmes.

Adoption by IFCM

Since summer 2004 Songbridge has been a project of International Federation for Choral Music (IFCM). As an established IFCM project, its mandate is to provide opportunity to open-minded choirs and conductors to work hand in hand with committed composers to create, through the medium of choral music, new messages and new models for the worldwide movement of children's and youth choirs.
