Koor&Stem is a non-profit organisation that supports more than 1000 choirs, 35.000 singers and conductors across Flanders. We bring people together through song, create education opportunities and promote fresh perspectives on the future of choral life.
Education & training for choirs
During our repertoire days and choral events, singers can come discover new pieces, sing through music, delve deeper into a certain genre, etc. But they sing as well; the singers often get a lot of tips about using their voices, their posture and so much more.
Networking plays an important role for us. Singers can meet each other to practice a song, have a nice chat, get a bite to eat and something to drink during a choir café, a choral day, a children’s choir gathering or a youth choir gathering.
Every choir is unique: the sound, the repertoire, the appearance, the composition, etc. Koor&Stem offers choirs the chance to develop. A choir coach comes by upon request to actively work with a choir on vocal training, choir sound, repertoire, performance...
The Koor&Stem choral consultants are available every day to provide advice or offer assistance. Member choirs can always ask these consultants any questions they may have or they can visit our website to find the answers to many frequently asked questions.
Choir board members can attend sessions on all kinds of practical administrative subjects, such as legislation on association structures, volunteers, copyrights, communication, etc. Singers can also brush up on their practical skills, during a basic course on solmisation.
Stemband Magazine is the quarterly magazine published by Koor&Stem. It contains interviews with famous and less-famous conductors and singers, repertoire tips, articles about what’s going on in the world of choral music, news and a calendar.
