Sierra Leone Music Lessons - a heart-warming report: -------------------------------------7. International Day of Choral Singing - 12 December Dedicate a concert to the memory of Eskil Hemberg and celebrate the International Day of Choral Singing. Eskil Hemberg, president of IFCM, passed away in June. It was decided to dedicate the International Day of Choral Singing to his memory and you can all participate. If you are planning a Christmas concert, why not schedule it on December 12th, the International Day of Choral Singing, and dedicate it to Eskil Hemberg? You will find more information about this idea on the Europa Cantat new website under -> news. Please let Europa Cantat know as soon as possible, at the latest on September 15th 2004, if you and your choir will schedule a concert on December 12th. Thank you very much in advance!
