The Finnish Choral Conductors’ Association (FCCA) was founded in 1992 to improve the position of choral directors, the interaction between conductors and choirs and lift the status of both choral conductors and choral music. FCCA presently has a little over 200 members. The organisation’s yearly prizes include Choral conductor of the year and  Choral recording of the year. In addition, FCCA awards the Choral Achievement prize that has so far been awarded only twice. FCCA publishes a Bulletin that appears three to four times a year. The association actively partakes in co-operation between the players on the musical scene in Finland and is at present strengthening its ties to the Choral conductors’ associations in the Nordic and Baltic countries. FCCA is a member of IFCM.

The internationally renowned Sibelius Academy has trained thousands of artists and music experts since 1882. We are proud of our heritage and we consider preserving and updating music culture as our fundamental task. Uncompromising enthusiasm for getting things done and a love for music are at the core of our activities. Each year, we have been ranked among the world’s best institutions of higher education in the performing arts (QS World University Rankings by Subject).

The cornerstones of our operations are teaching, research, and artistic activities. We are one of Europe’s largest music academies and an international community of about 1,400 students and 500 teachers.

The focus of the studies is for students to grow into professional artists who know their own creative identity. We strengthen students’ artistic skills and knowledge and prepare them for their careers. On their individual study paths, students can focus on a specialised area or develop wide-ranging artistic professionalism.

The cooperation between the Northern countries and their choral conductors’ associations is a very important part of the Nordic Choral Conductors’ Conference. The planning of the event usually begins a couple of years ahead, and all the Nordic associations take part in it. Also, the event in Helsinki has been planned together with Föreningen Sveriges Körledare, Foreningen norske kordirigenter, Foreningen Danske Korledere, and Félag íslenskra kórstjóra.
