The organisation of INTERKULTUR is born by the idea of bringing together people of all countries, cultures and world views in peaceful competitions.
Right from the beginning Günter Titsch was convinced of the power of his idea to create ‘bridges of encounters’. All people involved share the same enthusiasm for choral music. It resolves prejudices, opens eyes and hearts for friendships and lays the groundwork for a vibrant and peaceful togetherness that outreaches music. Within a short period of time, this philosophy has made INTERKULTUR an international top address for major musical events in the choral community. Today INTERKULTUR organises every year up to 14 international choir competitions and festivals around the globe.
Among its members the organisation counts leading personalities from culture, politics and business, as well as choirs and orchestras, clubs and cultural organisations: the ‘World Choir Council’, a kind of United Nations of choral singing, is made up of renowned choral experts from 80 countries. They represent INTERKULTUR’s musical network with app. 120,000 choirs with 4.8 million singers. The organisation has offices and representatives in numerous countries and is supported by ministries of culture, municipal authorities and countless organisations.
