Coro Calicantus

The world of international children’s and youth choral music increasingly represents a model of education for collaboration, solidarity, peace, and music.

The frequent festivals, symposia, and competitions dedicated to this art form testify to its richness and allow us to reflect on the significance that music and choral music can assume today, in the formation of children, the adults of tomorrow.

The Calicantus Choir is active on an educational, artistic, human, and social level both in Switzerland and internationally. Its goal is to educate the younger generation in singing, to organize cultural exchanges with choirs from all over the world, and to promote choral art as a means of raising awareness of humanitarian action.

Why we need your help

This unique project and the entire Calicantus Choir school system entail high financial costs.

The 30th will see the presence of logistics never seen in the church: platforms, lights, big screen, technical teams, etc. Ticket revenue will not be enough to cover expenses. Every small contribution you make is a sign of trust, and we thank you in advance.
