Who are we?

We are the Youth Committee of the European Choral Association 2022-2024. Our mission is to support the Board of the organisation and give the youth perspective on different topics. Get to know us in this article!

“Choral music has always been my biggest passion, so after attending various ECA-events, I’m very excited to now be part of the ECA-family. I’m glad to be able to contribute to a united Europe in the best way I know: by bringing people together in music.”

Augustas Kvedaravičius

Country: Lithuania

“I have lived most of my life surrounded by music and I have seen how little it takes to ignite the biggest flames of passion in a person’s heart. Thus, I believe music is one of the greatest art forms that unites us all in a sense that’s beyond comprehension. Being a member of the new Youth committee draws me closer to my desire to help people around the globe in finding the spark that once ignited me.”

Ben Jacob

Country: Ireland

“I believe a sense of community is one of the most important things to maintain in our modern world, and I know choral music has the power to bring people together. I cannot wait to begin my work with the other committee members over the next three years.”

Joana Costa

Country: Portugal

“Greetings from Portugal! Having been singing in choirs for 10 years, I am currently working as a freelance cultural manager, organising events and managing cultural projects in Portugal and around Europe. Being part of ECA’s Youth Committee is an opportunity to give a voice about the experience of young musicians and managers in this field.”

Kertu Süld

Country: Estonia

“Having been involved in the choral world one way or another for as long as I can remember, I have found a lot of inspiration, friends and joy thanks to our choral movement. Although my background varies from economics, coding and tour guiding to cultural management, marketing and journalism, today I am an active singer, assistant to music festivals, manager of national girls’ choir and a band, as well as secretary of chamber choirs’ society.”

Hi! Greetings from Turkey, I sing proudly with Jazzberry Tunes, I very much like travelling, and I am totally cheerful when some cats are around!?”
