About us

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.

We have received fantastic news, just before the start of the summer! The World Choir Games 2020 will indeed take place in Flanders.
Flanders Today wrote a news story about our project 'The Voice of our Memory'. Read all about it here.
Two Belgian choirs join the World Choir Games in South Africa 2018: Jeugdkoor Waelrant and Showkoor Rise Up.

Education & training for choirs

Singing together

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

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.

Choir coaching

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...

Personal assistance

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.

Practical skills

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.

Magazine

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.

Our projects

Koor&Stem has developed national and international partnerships with organisations within and outside the choral world: art centers, educational organisations, foundations, care homes for the elderly, ... Get acquainted with some of our cooperation projects.
