One voice for collective singing in Europe

The European Choral Association - Europa Cantat (ECA-EC) is a non-profit association gathering organisations, choirs and individuals active in the field of collective singing in Europe. Through this network we are in contact with more than 2,5 million individuals in over 50 countries.


The targets of our activities and events are the 37 million singers, conductors, composers, managers and educators active in the field of collective singing in Europe.


Since 1963, our aims are to foster cooperation and mutual understanding between cultures, nations and individuals across social and political borders, to promote collective singing as tool for education and for community building and to represent the interests of the singing community.
