About the World Youth Choir
The World Youth Choir has been appointed Artist for Peace by UNESCO. Without speeches, without banners, the World Youth Choir presents its message of music, international peace, and brotherhood in perfect artistic unity.
Since its creation in 1989, the World Youth Choir (WYC) has established itself as an incredible musical and intercultural experience for young musicians. Each summer, about 100 singers, aged between 17 and 26 and representing 40 countries, come together in a different country of the world. Their month together includes two weeks of rehearsals followed by a performance tour, presenting concerts in prestigious halls and cultural centres within the host country and neighbouring countries.
The artistic scope of the project is in itself a major achievement. The World Youth Choir also represents for its members a unique personal and social experience. Regardless of political or cultural differences, young people holding a common appreciation for singing share one month together. This allows for work and leisure, conversation and debate. From this community of singers evolve lifelong friendships.
