Between August 16 and 21, Eric Ericson International Choral Centre and Carpe Vitam brought attention to the importance of music and its potential to create social change with the event “Music and Humanity”. Comprising a symposium, a choir music festival and a course for choir conductors, Music and Humanity celebrated and explored how singing or playing together can release our innate creativity and create a meaningful social context for individuals of diverse backgrounds. Choirs participating were from Indonesia, Sweden and Zambia, and also included the Al Baath Arab Voices of Galilee from Northern Israel. Rebecca Oliver of the Tällberg Foundation moderated the Symposium – a blend of conversation and music – on August 16 and 17. All events took place in the Eric Ericson Hall on the island of Skeppsholmen, Stockholm.
